still catching the larger trout,,but keep them slow, and near the bottom.

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.
October Caddis are hatching.
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.
