Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin are great flies to use during the spring season.
Blue-winged olives are hatching.

Aquatic worms are working.
Winter stoneflies are working.
Black Flies are working.

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
