Drakes Were Okay This Week

Metolius River - Metolius Springs, OR (Jefferson County)

by The Fly Fishers Place

Drakes were ok this week, maybe the bright sunny days put the bugs off a bit, but also saw drakes hatching at noon when usually they are 2 to 5. PMD hatches were consistent all week and that brought on some good rusty spinner fall action in the evening. You’ll see some BWO’s and a lot of caddis mixed in throughout the day, but especially after the sun begins to dip down and put shadows on Green Ridge. 

The Upper River is great too, so really all the way from Tract C to Candle Creek is fishing well. 

With cooler and cloudy weather coming I think a good week is in store for the Met the 1st week of June.
