On the Metolius, the trend is very good. Afternoon Baetis hatches have been dominating the daily feeding cycle of the fish. A good friend of mine had a really good midge hatch a few days ago and did well on Griffiths Gnats after the BWO hatch was over.
Later in the day you’ll be seeing more Silver Stripe Sedge and October Caddis mixed with some smaller #14-16 grey caddis. The Pupa of all 3 of these caddis are most important now.
And finally as we move into early February the little black stones become more important too.
Bull Trout fishing remains good on streamers. Bring your 7 or 8 weight for tossing the heavy flies.
Nymph fishing either Euro Style or with an indicator is very productive. I watched Troy (one of our FFP guides) fishing with his wife a couple of days ago hammer a few rainbows, a few whitefish and a nice bull trout all euro nymphing.
Golden Stones, mayfly nymphs, eggs, caddis pupa, pink bead hares ear, blue psycho prince, frenchie and red copper johns are high on our list.
