Metolius River report 3/25/17

The River is still high, although it has cleared considerably. I prefer to fish the Metolius at levels under 1700 or 1800 but it is up at 2300 cfs. That is rolling. Despite the higher water, fish are being caught, with some dry fly action and nymphing in the eddies, and along the softer ledges.
Bull Trout fishing has been pretty good on big white streamers.

I would put it on the list to go for Spring Break.

Remember it is still closed above Allingham Bridge. It’s tempting to go up there, because the best water conditions are there, but don’t. It’s against the law and this is the spewing grounds for our wild stock and they don’t need the pressure or abuse of wading anglers on their beds.
