Metolius River Fish Report for 12-24-2021
Bull Trout fishing has been good
Metolius River - Metolius Springs, OR (Jefferson County)
by The Fly Fishers Place
The Metolius is actually fishing well, and while hatches are sparse, you could certainly see a mid-afternoon BWO #20 on the water about noon to 2. October Caddis hatches are consistent, with many of the big orange bugs in the air later in the afternoon. The best action is coming on euro nymphing techniques with heavy beaded perditions and jigs. Golden Stones, Caddis Pupa, Eggs, Blue Psycho Prince and Red Copper Johns are consistent favorites for us.
Bull Trout fishing has been good. The fish are taking streamers well, either on the swing or drifted under a large strike indicator.
The river is open from Allingham to the Lake Billy Chinook, but travel below the Wizard Falls Fish Hatchery is going to get tough with the snow accumulations coming.
Expect to see increasing Winter Stones (Black #14-18) in the coming weeks.
