On Thursday when Tina and I fished the Metolius, it clouded up about noon and by one the BWO hatch was in full swing and lasted an hour. It was good dry fly fishing during that hour and we caught fish on Knock Down Duns, Purple Comparaduns and CDC Parachutes.

Yesterday I was out with a couple of friends, and Phil nailed some good fish on a Purple Perdigon, Timmy on Jig PT’s and I stuck with the dry fly and got one on a BWO and lost one on a PMD. PMD? In December? WTHeck!!! But for real, this crazy weather had some crazy hatches yesterday and Spring Creeks are crazy anyway…That’s a whole lotta crazy but it is 2020.

Bull Trout fishing was good for some friends this week, mostly on black streamers swung with a sink tip.
