Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Midges are hatching. Fish the larva and pupa in tandem for the best results. Fish the
adults when you see midges on the surface.
Various species of Blue-winged Olives nymphs are still very plentiful. Some of them are
bi-brooded and will be hatching again soon.
Scuds are available for the trout to eat year-round.
Brown Sculpin, White Belly Sculpin and articulated streamers are great choices for early
and late fishing
Black and olive Matuka sculpin streamers are good fly choices for the larger trout..
