The Metolius is seeing a bit of the April Blues. I’d say December and April are the weirdest months on the Met. Inconsistent. And holding true to form it has been!
Fishing most days is OK, but it’ll be better in May when things really start to turn for the better. Now, nymph with precision, look for hatches of BWO’s and Cinygmula’s, Caddis and even some midges to be important fish catchers. But don’t expect it’ll all be on top. Fish the columns, nymphs, emergers, adults…. Bull Trout on Streamers has continued to be good on most days. AND oh boy do we have some killer new streamers lately. If you love Bulls, come check out the streamers. Best we’ve ever had.
