The Metolius is good

The Fly Fishers Place

Report Date:

The Metolius is good. When I was there this week I saw some of the 1st PMD’s of the year hatch along with a few March Browns. BWO’s are the primary mayfly at this time. It seems like the bigger october caddis and silver stripe sedges are about done until fall. I’ve seen very few on my last couple of trips. I know Brad had a day he had a great afternoon caddis hatch (tan #16), so the smaller caddis that will dominate the summer hatch cycles are beginning now in their place. As expected.

Nymphing is the best bet by far over dries for the moment. Dries are good. Nymphs are better. Especially Euro Style. Drakes are still about a month away. usually Mid-May is the time we see an early smattering and by late May it is ON.

Bull Trout fishing is pretty good. My friend Anthony took his buddy out Wednesday (and stood me up for our rendezvous) and they found this bad boy. I had a big grab on a streamer that is about a foot long, but no fish to the net this time.
