Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
The Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin streamers are great flies to use for the next
several weeks.
Midges are always important in a tailwater. 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.
Various species of Blue-winged olives are hatching.
Spotted sedge caddis are hatching.
Mahogany duns are hatching.
Little Yellow stoneflies are hatching.
Terrestrials like Japanese beetles, carpenter ants and hoppers are working.
