On Friday I fished with some good buddies down on the Metolius, with our emphasis on Bull Trout. My friend Mike got a nice one but lost it in a big stream side bush. That fish knew what it was doing. We found an excellent BWO hatch and got distracted from casting big streamers and went to 6x and #20 dries. Good stuff.
On Saturday I went again with my friend Ken and we had a focus on hitting the afternoon hatch. It was our first day of snow since last winter and the PMD’s and BWO’s were coming off well. Look for mid-day hatches to occur all week. There were some gorgeous Yellowish/Olive Caddis (#12) hatching yesterday and I saw some trout behavior that would indicate they were slashing at Caddis Pupa in the film during emergence.
There are still Kokanee spawning so egg nymphs are a great bet in a lot of areas.
