Metolius River

Green Drakes are pretty decent. The Fish seem to be looking for them every afternoon between 3 and 5 regardless of how strong (or not) the hatch is that day.
Seems like below Bridge 99 is getting a little better hatch, but they are coming up on them in the hatchery area too.
PMD hatches are good. Rusty Spinners in the evening or possibly early AM.
Caddis are on and off. Always be prepared for a late afternoon or early evening caddis emergence.
Some Salmonfly action has been seen and reported. For the next week to 10 days it will be smart to carry a Salmonfly or two out there.
No sightings of Golden Stones yet, but the nymphs are very important.
Speaking of nymphs, try running the Carotene Jig and Mr Peacock on a Rio Indicator leader.
