Over on the Metolius, the Drakes are about done until the September hatch. Would I carry a few Green Drakes this week? Absolutely. Certainly you can see a hatch, perhaps short and isolated but important none the less. 

Gavin from our shop saw a good number of mahogany duns (i’d guess Nixe not Paraleptophlebia at this time), Yellow Sally’s, PMD’s and Golden Stones in the upper river. There are numerous caddis hatches now, especially in the evening, along with some BWO’s about 5 to 7 PM and Rusty Spinners at Dusk. 

Nymph fishing is very good all over the river with Golden Stones, Copper Johns, Lightning Bug, 2 Bit Hooker, Micro Mayfly, CDC Hares Ear, Olive Hares Ear, Perdigons and Euro Jigs. 

I have not heard of any Bull Trout this week but did see a few photos on Instagram of some local anglers that caught some sizable Bull’s.
