Metolius River Fish Report for 5-8-2020
Metolius River Report
Metolius River - Metolius Springs, OR (Jefferson County)
by The Fly Fishers Place
Since that big full moon around the Spring Equinox, the dry fly fishing was flat. It is neat to see this week that the fish have started to feed better on top again. PMD’s and Caddis have been hatching well, with a few (Green Drakes, read very few so far) and Epeorus hatching.
Nymph action has been fun. Euro Nymphs and Golden Stones, Caddis Pupa, Micro Mayflies, Zebra Midges and Frenchies have been productive.
Bull Trout fishing on Streamers and small nymphs has continued to be productive this week and should remain a strong option. Don’t fish Bull’s on a 5 weight please. Respect the fish and play them quickly, not too exhaustion.
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE RIVER FROM THE HEADWATERS TO THE ALLINGHAM BRIDGE REMAINS CLOSED UNTIL MAY 22. There are way too many people not paying attention to the upper river closure and that is not cool. It is a sanctuary and is closed to protect spawning in the winter months and now, it is still closed to protect juvenile fish. Please read the regulations. And for the 2 dudes from Washington that said to the hiker who told them it was closed above Allingham, and replied they weren’t leaving because Jeff at FFP told them it was open. No sir. You couldn’t be more wrong.
