Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
The Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin streamers are great flies to use for the next
several weeks.
Midges are always important in a tailwater. 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.
