The weather is staying nice and warm and anglers are catching trout. Conditions
are good. You have to watch the discharge schedule and all of you probably
know. It determines where and how to fish. Midges are still the main insects to
imitate. There are some caddis that produces some action at time.

Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
The Black Matuka and Olive Matuka Sculpin streamers are good flies to use for the
larger size trout, especially during low light conditions and when the water is running
high or off color. The Brown Sculpin and White Belly sculpin are consistently the best
streamers to use on the White.
Scuds and sow bugs are available for the trout to eat year-round.
Little Black caddis are hatching.
Winter stoneflies are hatching. Black flies 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.
