I got home from Cuba and headed to the Metolius two days later. My favorite place in the world to fish and just be!

We weren’t disappointed with the afternoon hatch that was a mix of BWO and Cinygmula about 1 in the afternoon. Fish were coming up to emergers and we got fish on Yellow Sparkle Duns, Purple Comparaduns and PMD Film Critics.

I’ve been catching up with friends and staff on how fishing has been during the 2 weeks I was out of the country and the word is really good. Especially Euro Nymphing and Streamer fishing for Bull Trout.

The weather is going to cloud up tomorrow and by Monday it looks like some good precipitation is coming for at least the beginning half of the week, and possibly looking wet all week. I love that for the Bull Trout especially, and have no problem overall with just improving the confidence of the fish to eat.

So, for those coming over for the holiday who may have had ski plans and realize there isn’t enough snow to open the slopes, go fish!
