We haven’t heard any first-hand reports of what has or has not been plowed as far as road access goes for the Metolius. They’ll typically try to plow down to the hatchery but I’d imagine the road is pretty low priority and it may not be accessible at this point. We’ll provide updates as we hear them but for now it’s a little bit of a gamble to head up to the Met. If anyone does make it to the water the fishing should still be consistent as it has been throughout the winter. There are plenty of nice Rainbows and Bulls that are willing to take a fly!
