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.
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.
Cinnamon caddis should begin to hatch soon.
Terrestrial insects, such as Japanese Beetles, Carpenter ants and grass hoppers will
become more and more important as the summer months go by.
