Fishing is good on the Metolius, and the warmer weather is bringing more opportunity to fish dries throughout the day. PMDs, Green Drakes, and various Caddis are all in the mix for the time being. Most surface activity will be through the afternoon and evening, with Drakes being most prevalent in the mid-late afternoon hours. Nymphing is producing fish throughout the day, and is the best approach until fish start coming up midday. Nymphs and streamers are both finding Bulls, particularly early in the morning.
