The Metolius is is only open from Allingham up river to the the Riverside CG area (near the headwaters). I fished it yesterday and had great success on a Clark’s Stone when using the dry fly rod, and with a Black Perdigon on my Euro rod. 

Saw a lot of PMD’s hatching and found some fish eating them, but a well drifted Clark’s never stopped working for me, so I never changed it. 

We are hopeful for the rest of the river to open soon and promise to keep you updated here as soon as we hear. 

We’ve had a couple of people tell us they were going to try to sneak down below the closure. That’s dumb. Don’t. Plus, most of the road blacks are also manned with USFS employees and they are serious about keeping people safe. If you respect authority and the law, don’t be entitled and think that doesn’t mean you.
