Metolius River fishing report 6/20/18

The Drakes are still on (and good) from 2 to 5. Unlikely they go 3 straight hours but will hatch in that time period.
PMD’s are on from noon to about 7 or 8 PM. Usually getting 2 hatches a day, one in the afternoon and one in the evening.
Good caddis hatches in the evening and then Rusty Spinners at dusk.

I would expect to see the 1st of the Golden Stones in the Upper River really soon. Maybe mid to late next week. With that expect very good nymphing on GS Nymphs! I’d run a red copper john or lightning bug dropper off the golden stone nymph too.

Bull Trout have been hitting streamers very early in the morning. It’s worth the effort to get there at dawn.
