Metolius River fishing report 8/15/16

Nymphing has been very good throughout the day. Frenchies, Zebra Midges, Jigs, CDC PT, CDC Hares Ear, 2 Bit Hooker and Micro Mayfly. Plus, as always Golden Stones!

Dry Fly Fishing is good, the PMD and BWO hatches have been good. There is a Flav looking mayfly coming off about 2 in the mid-river. They are the species ameletus and are a solid #12-14 olive mayfly.
Start looking for massive micro caddis hatches in the evening. Our little Yellow Iris is a fantastic match for this!
Golden Stones are below 99 and up from the Gorge to the Headwaters. Also look for great Yellow Sally hatches,

There are more Bull Trout entering the system as it is now their spawning run. By late September and all of October it is the best fishing of the year for those beasts.
