Ah, now you're asking about secret stuff !! No seriously, mostly sub surface, the trout at least here on the upper Cape aren't big on hitting single floating midges, at least not in fall when the insects can be stacked up two feet thick below the surface.. I can't tell you all my tactics though, I have to leave something for your imagination, you will think our Cape fish are too easy lol ! That said, don't come to Cape Cod in the fall without Griffiths Gnats, there are times they key to those rolling tumbling midge clusters on the surface.
Not looking for your secrets! The kettle ponds on the North Shore are mostly dry midges... a lot of fun for me compared to going subsurface. Of course that beckons for a better presentation... 13-16 foot 7 and 8x leaders with size 26-32 midges. A lot of fun I think!
But seriously, I appreciate you filling me in a bit in the Cape. Like I said I'm there almost every day for a 2 week period in the fall, and then again when the herring push through in the spring. Maybe I'll make some more trips there this winter, check it out a bit.
Mid winter if the water is open, it's then full sink line time here.
