Overall, fishing has remained pretty good. April is always a weird month on the Metolius but I’d say this April has been better than most with catches of Rainbow, Bull Trout and Whitefish staying good on nymphs.
You’d think the above average temps and abundant sun would get the hatches really going, but they’ve been flat. I expect hatches to be good this week as we are forecast to get some clouds and possibly light showers.
A friend of mine caught a huge bull trout on a Double Bead Peacock Stone (aka cheeseburger) last week. That fly has also been great for rainbows.
