Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin and articulated streamers, size 6/4
Aquatic Worms, size 12, pink, red, and others
Winter stoneflies, size 16/18, nymphs and adults
Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Fish the Brown or White Belly Sculpin streamer anytime during low light conditions, or
early and late in the day. They are good flies for the larger trout.
The Black and olive matuka sculpin are also working good.
.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.
Blue-winged olives are hatching.
Winter stoneflies are hatching
