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 trout.
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
.
