Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
There is little change in the best fishing strategy during the winter months. It is almost
alway best 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.
Some areas have good concentrations of various species of blue-winged olive nymphs
and fishing an imitation of them is an alternative strategy.
Fish the Black Matuka and Olive Matuka Sculpin or the Brown or White Belly Sculpin
streamer, or any of the Articulated streamer patterns anytime during low light conditions,
or early and late in the day. They are good flies for the larger trout..
Scuds will work good at this time of the season.
Sculpin patterns are also as well as Articulated Sculpin patterns.
Spotted sedge caddis are hatching.
