Winter Stoneflies, size 16/18, nymphs and adults
Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
The White Belly, Brown Sculpin and Articulated streamers are good flies to use for the
larger size trout. The Black Matuka and Olive Matuka sculpin streamers are also good
flies to use for the larger fish.
Midges, cream, light green and red or blood midges are plentiful. Fish the larva and
pupa rigged in tandem.
Blue Winged Olives hatch on warm, cloudy days.
Aquatic worms are working.
Winter stoneflies are hatching.
We still think a good strategy is fishing 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.
