Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Blue-winged Olives are hatching.
March Browns are hatching.
Winter stoneflies are hatching.

Brown Sculpin and the White Belly Sculpin streamers are flies you don't want to be
caught short on. Our articulated streamers are working great.
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.
