Black and Copper UV Midge Pupa
This spring I have been fishing my UV Midge Pupa at various lakes in Nevada and Oregon and it has been tremendously productive. Whether using a cast and retrieve, trolling, or dropping it under an indicator, my UV Midge Pupa has delivered.
Fishing my UV Midge Pupa at Wilder Lake, Oregon
When trolling or using a cast and retrieve along the shorelines, I use my Camo 7-foot tip intermediate sinking line that keeps the fly in the top few feet. I use short, 4 to 6-inch retrieves with a definite pause between retrieves. The fish take the fly on the pause as the fly is sinking. Like my UV Midge, this pattern has demonstrated it can be used throughout the year. In the early spring I use a #10 hook, and I drop the hook size to a #12 or #14 in from late spring through fall.s.

I have found all colors to be effective although I favor olive during the warm summer months when damsels are abundant.
