The Metolius is starting to see better Green Drake hatches, and even if you don’t see a lot of naturals, between 2 and 5 look for splashy takes and fish that water with an emerger or dun. 

The Green Drakes will be in full swing by the end of the month but are already off to a good start. 
PMD hatches are starting to heat up as well. Emergers, Duns and Rusty Spinners can be good. 
When the Warmer days get more consistent the Caddis are too.
We’ve been doing really well with Perdigons and Jigs Euro style. Indicator fishing in some areas is great. 

Bull Trout on Streamers can be productive in the lower part of the river.
