Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin are great flies to use during the entire year.
Blue-winged Olives are still hatching in some sections.
Scuds and Sowbugs are always present in the stream and important food for the trout.
Midges are becoming important.
It is almost alway best 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.
Mahogany duns are hatching
Spotted Sedges, or caddisflies, are hatching.
Tricos are hatching.
Terrestrial insects like the Japanese Beetle, Carpenter ants, and hoppers will soon
become important insects to imitate.
