Strategies, Techniques and Tips: Trout:
Brown Sculpin, White Belly Sculpin and Articulated streamers are great flies to use anytime.
Various species of Blue-winged Olives are hatching, mostly on cloudy, overcast days.
Black and Olive matuka sculpin are catching troujt. Slate drakes are hatching.
We recommend fishing 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.
