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 Brown sculpin and White Belly
sculpin streamers are great flies to use at this time.
Blue-winged olives are hatching.
Aquatic worms are catching trout.
