Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin are great flies to use for the next several weeks.
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.
