The Olive Matuka Sculpin and Black Matuka Sculpin are good flies to use at this time.

Winter stoneflies are hatching.
Aquatic worms are working.
Black flies 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.
