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.
