Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
The Brown Sculpin, White Belly Sculpin and Articulated streamers are good flies to use
for larger trout.
The Black Matuka and Olive Matuka sculpin streamers are good flies to use at this time
of the season.
Winter stoneflies are hatching.
Aquatic worms are working.
Various species of Blue-winged Olives are hatching.
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
.
March Browns are hatching.
