Metolius River fishing report 5/12/16

Just starting to get fish looking for Green Drakes. Not much of a hatch but we’ve been getting fish up on dry drakes for the past few days. Usually, typical GD timing starts around Memorial Day and goes until the end of June for the 1st summer hatch.

PMD hatches are mostly good. I’ve seen great days and then I was there Sunday and never saw a PMD. Lot’s of BWO’s on Sunday though.

Caddis and Rusty Spinners in the evening.

Good nymphing with stone nymphs and a small dropper. Black Zebra Midges and Lightning Bugs have been hot.

Bull Trout action is fair to good but improves in low light times, like early AM or in the evening.
