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 …

Metolius Update 11/14/18

We are still having some awesome days on the Metolius, with the cold clear days expect most of the feeding to take place subsurface. Standard Metolius nymph rigs comprised of a big Stonefly nymph and little Mayfly pattern are producing most of our fish right now, and will likely be the most productive way to …

Metolius Update 11/7/18

The Metolius has continued to fish well, big nymphs are finding good numbers of fish as are Pheasant Tails, Hare’s Ears, and similar variations in the #14-18 range. The cooler weather has resulted in a little less insect activity than we’ve been seeing, but there are still plenty of fish that will look to the …

Metolius Update 10/31/18

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 …

Metolius Update 10/24/18

The Metolius has continued to fish very well for both Redsides and Bulls. Nymphing is the best way to get into fish, and big Stoneflies, October Caddis, and Mayfly nymphs have all been producing fairly consistently. Good Caddis and Mayfly activity throughout the day provides opportunity to fish dries. Keep your eyes open and cast …

Metolius Update 10/12/18

The Metolius has continued to fish well. We aren’t seeing quite the numbers or varieties of insects that graced the Metolius’ waters through September, but there are still plenty of Mayflies and Caddis around to turn fish towards the surface when conditions are right. PMDs and BWOs are the primary Mayflies for now, and there …

Metolius Update 9/28/18

There are all sorts of bugs out on the Metolius, providing great opportunity to fish dries to nice Redsides. We’ve seen an assortment of Caddis, Golden Stones, and Mayflies on most days. PMDs are prevalent, and there have been some great Green Drake hatches, particularly on overcast days. It is tough to beat the array …
