Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
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.
Our Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin streamers are the best streamers you can use
during entire year. Perfect Fly Articulated streamers are working good as well.
The Black Matuka and Olive Matuka Sculpin streamrs are also good flies to use at this time.
Various species of Blue-winged olives hatch on cloudy days and the nymphs are very
plentiful.
Winter stoneflies are hatching.
