Metolius Update 3/29/19

The Metolius has been a strong and consistent river for local anglers throughout the Winter, and should only fish better as we transition into Spring. We are still mainly using our cold month-flies right now, and seeing most of our fish on the small Baetis patterns. Leading with a large Golden Stone or October Caddis …

Metolius Update 3/13/19

It has been a great Winter on the Metolius and there is no reason to think the fishing will slow down anytime soon. The latest we’ve heard on access is that the road below the hatchery is still a no-go, but that could change at any time now. Nymphing has been very consistent and we …

Metolius Update 3/1/19

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 …

Metolius Update 2/21/19

Access on the Metolius has become a little more difficult with the storms we’ve seen this February. The road is being plowed pretty consistently in the Camp Sherman area but access to the lower campgrounds can be tricky. The fishing has been good and there is opportunity to find nice Redsides as well as the …

Metolius Update 2/1/19

Access is still wide open on the Metolius, and while there has been a fair amount of pressure there is room for anglers to spread out. Whether you’re looking for Rainbows or Bulls nymphing is the most effective way to find fish right now. Big Stoneflies, October Caddis, and various Mayfly nymphs are all producing …

Metolius Update 1/17/19

We are seeing some snow and colder temperatures throughout Central Oregon, but access on the Metolius has not been an issue and the roads have stayed pretty clear all the way to lower bridge. The river continues to fish well, especially for those focusing their efforts on nymphing. Golden Stones, October Caddis, and an assortment …

Metolius Update 12/21/18

The consistent waters of the Metolius are not disappointing, and continue to provide excellent opportunity to find quality, native fish. Most of the precipitation up around Camp Sherman has been a mix of rain and snow, and there shouldn’t be too many issues with road access at this point, but of course that can change …

Metolius Update 12/14/18

The incredible Fall we saw on the Metolius has led right into a pretty awesome start to Winter angling for both Redsides and Bull Trout. For now there is very little snow on the ground up on the Met, which means we can fish all of our normal summer runs without worrying about road access. …

Metolius Update 12/5/18

The Metolius is still fishing well, there isn’t much new to report on as far as insect or fish activity go. The trout fishing has been good, and we’ve still been getting reports of good numbers of Bulls being caught. Anglers targeting the Bulls with nymph rigs are probably catching better numbers of fish, but …

Metolius Update 11/21/18

Not much has changed as far as fishing the Metolius goes. The fishing has been good for both Rainbows and Bulls, and these warm Fall days have kept things pretty lively as far as the fishing and pressure goes. We are finding almost all of our Trout on deep nymph rigs mostly on Stonefly and …
