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.
We still think the best 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.
Various species of Blue-winged Olives are hatching.
S
kwala stoneflies are hatching.
Little Brown stoneflies are hatching.
March Browns are hatching.
