Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin are great flies to use during the spring season.
Blue-winged olives are hatching.
Little Brown stoneflies are hatching.
Skwala stoneflies should start hatching soon.
We still think the best 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.
