The Metolius has continued to fish as the Metolius typically does, with good amounts of well-directed effort producing a few quality and rewarding fish. For those looking to throw dry flies, searching out individuals or pockets of fish looking towards the surface throughout the day is the best approach. While there are good numbers of PMDs, Caddis, and Golden Stoneflies around, most of the surface activity has been opportunistic. Covering water while keeping a keen eye for subtle rises, especially in slower runs, back eddies, and pockets near deadfall and boulders, should reveal the fish that are looking towards the surface. Keep an eye on which bugs are most prevalent and adjust flies accordingly. There have been a good enough number of Golden Stones around that having a Clark’s Stone, Yellow Stimulator, or Golden Chubby Chernobyl on the water may produce an occasional and aggressive strike. For more consistent action, nymphing a two-fly rig with plenty of weight will provide opportunity to find fish throughout the day. Your favorite Golden Stone pattern followed by a Mayfly nymph or Caddis Pupa will suffice. There are many productive areas on the Metolius that hold fish but are difficult to fish due to the speed, depth, and turbulence of the water. Using sufficient weight or a tight line technique like Euro Nymphing to ensure flies are near the bottom and drifting naturally are key to finding fish.
