The Metolius has fished well throughout the Fall, and the productive fishing has not wavered with the first taste of Winter and snow that we’ve seen in the past week. Most of the action is subsurface, but some sporadic Blue Wing hatches are bringing fish to the surface at times. We’ve been seeing a short hatch mid-day, and usually the fish are only keyed in on the emergers and adults for a short time but if you’re prepared there is opportunity to find a nice Redside on the dry. The cloudy days and precipitation in the forecast should improve BWO activity. The nymphing has been great and we’ve gotten reports of consistent trout fishing as well as quite a few Bulls coming on the nymph rig. The standard rig comprised of a big Stonefly and small Mayfly pattern should be all one needs to get into a few fish up on the Metolius right now. With all the Bulls in the system right now big streamers are also a valid option for those looking to tangle with big fish. Oftentimes we see the best streamer action on the days with the worst weather, so those who are willing to brave the elements could see big rewards in the coming days. Depending on the amount of snow we see, road access will become a factor going forward through the Winter. Sometimes we can get down to Lower bridge all Winter long, but some years the road is pretty much inaccessible for several months. Now is the time to get out if you wish to ensure some time on the Metolius before the end of the year!

    Throughout this great scheme of things you actually receive a B- for effort and hard work. Where exactly you misplaced me personally ended up being in your particulars. You know, they say, the devil is in the details… And that could not be more accurate in this article. Having said that, allow me reveal to you just what did give good results. Your authoring is quite persuasive which is probably why I am taking an effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, despite the fact that I can notice a jumps in reason you make, I am definitely not certain of just how you seem to connect your points which make the actual final result. For now I will, no doubt yield to your point however wish in the future you connect the facts better.
