The Metolius is fair to good. Afternoon fishing is tough, with better evening bite on BWO, PMD, Yellow Sally’s, Golden Stones, Caddis emergers and Rusty Spinners.
Bull Trout fishing on streamers is good and will be even better in 4 to 6 weeks. A lot of the BT are getting ready to run the creeks to spawn. Remember there is no fishing in the tributary creeks.

Euro nymping the river has proven to be the very best in the afternoon as the hatches have been slow to get going until evening.

The Upper River has been better in the afternoon from the Gorge to the Riverside CG and fish are hitting Clark’s Stones, Norm Woods, Sally’s, PMD’s and Terrestrials (esp. grasshoppers).
