Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Our Brown and White Belly Sculpin are great flies to use at this time.
The Olive Matuka and Black Matuka sculpin streamers are good flies to use at this time.
Various species of Blue-winged Olives are hatching.
Scuds are available for the trout to eat year-round.
Spotted sedge caddis are hatching.
Mahogany duns are hatching.
October Caddis 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.
