We’ve continued to see excellent fishing on the Metolius, with lots of Caddis and Mayfly activity on most days. Nymphing has been the most productive approach, but there is certainly opportunity to bring nice Redsides to the surface with a small Caddis, PMD, or BWO pattern. As always, stay observant. Fish looking towards the surface will typically reveal themselves every minute or two, but can turn off and on quickly.  Oftentimes there will only be a few fish in any given area that are totally keyed in on the surface, even when there are good numbers of bugs out, and the majority of fish will ignore just about anything but a nymph near the bottom. Target actively rising fish with dries while sticking with the nymph rig where fish are not working the surface, and focus on getting the natural drift we all work for. There are a lot of Bull Trout in the Met right now and it’s a great time to get out and target these big brutes with either a streamer or nymph set up. Just make sure to have a heavy rod and go deep if the Bulls are what you’re looking for!

    Does operating a well-established blog such

    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new
    aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
