Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
We still think a good strategy is to fish a tandem Midge rig under a small strike indicator
with the midge lava as the bottom fly and the midge pupa as the top fly. Fish the adult
midge only when you observe trout feeding on the surface.
Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin are great streamers to use at this time. The Black
Matuka Sculpin and Olive Matuka Sculpin streamers are good flies to use for the larger
size trout. Fish them in low light conditions.
Blue-winged olives are hatching.
Little Brown stoneflies are hatching.

Little Black caddis are hatching.
