cold, of course. Midges and Winter stoneflies are hatching. Fish the lowest

7 Day Weather Forecast: There is a chance of snow everyday for this coming
week. Highs will range from 14 to 32 degrees and lows from -1 to 20 degrees.
Recommended Trout Flies:
Midges: Blood (Red), sizes 20/22, larva, pupa and adults

Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
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.The Olive Matuka and Black
Matuka Sculpin Streamers are good flies to use for the larger trout.
The Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin are great flies to use in the winter season.
Various species of Blue-winged Olives are hatching.
Winter stoneflies are hatching.
