Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
The Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin 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.
October Caddis are hatching.
Little Yellow stoneflies are hatching.
Spotted Sedges are hatching.
