The Metolius is just fishing very well. Most afternoons there is a decent to good Blue Wing Olive hatch about 1 PM. You’ll also run into October Caddis, Snow Sedge and Silver Stripe Sedge (the latter are smaller cousins to the Oct Caddis), some smaller grey caddis and most likely a mix of stoneflies with the Little Winter Black Stones being the predominate Stonefly at this time.
Nymphing has been producing the most fish on any given day. Most success is coming on Olive Perdigons, Golden Stone Nymphs, Small Hares Ears, Caddis Pupa, Eggs, BWO nymphs (like a Micro Mayfly or 2 Bit in Dark Olive).
We always lean towards Euro Nymphing, but certainly in some places a Strike Indicator is a great idea.
Streamer fishing has remained the best for Bull’s. Not that they won’t eat a well drifted nymph, because they sure will! Black streamers have been fishing the best I’d say.
