They say one never enters the same river twice. This especially holds true for the Metolius. The hatches here are some of the most diverse of any river in the world. The best thing you can do is focus on your presentation, not necessarily your choice of fly. The catch can be on one day and off the next. Unless you are imitating emergers, keep your drift as dead as possible. Use 9 foot leaders when fishing heavy flies and 12-15 foot 5x-6x leaders on the surface or just beneath the surface when fishing small flies. Small flies reign. Also, try dead-drifting a streamer for bull trout.

Fishing Report

May/June

May and June are exciting months on the river with lots of insect activity coming to life. The fabled Green Drake hatch arrives late May and last through mid June. Try skating a size 8-12 dry in the rapids. PMDs are also abundant size 14-18. Look for gray and green caddis size 12-18. Nymph and soft hackle fishing is always productive when the surface is quiet.

About_Metolius.jpg

The Metolius River is a world-renowned spring creek that attracts fly anglers from all over the world. It is considered to be one of the most challenging rivers to fish anywhere. If you define success not by the number of fish caught but rather by the quality of your overall experience in a beautiful natural place, you will not be disappointed. The Metolius’s fish are all wild and are masters of their environment. They are strong, smart and brilliantly beautiful. Stocking ceased in the early 90s to allow wild fish to regain a stronghold and it has been a huge success with fish redd counts (nests) continuing to increase over time. Here you will primarily find rainbow trout, bull trout, white fish. Please remember to carefully release each fish you catch. Keep them in the water and in a deep location to avoid head trauma and to avoid oxygen depletion.
