Metolius River is of course a year round fishery and remains open in all stretches for now. It is fishing well with the predominate hatch being BWO’s. PMD’s are giving way to another little Yellow Mayfly called a cinygmula (PMD’s have 3 tails and cinygmulas have 2). Mahogany Duns are also coming off in the afternoon all over the river, and there are plenty of good caddis hatches. 

The Kokanee are getting to the point on being spawned out in a lot of the river. Egg flies remain a solid choice for nymphing. 

October Caddis Pupa and Golden Stone Nymphs are excellent fall and winter nymphs.

Bull Trout fishing is good.
