Metolius River fishing report 10/25/18

Fishing is very good on the entire river, with dries and nymphs for trout and big streamers for Bully’s.
In the upper river from the Headwater stretch down to the Gorge here are good hatches of Caddis, October Caddis, PMD, BWO (#1), a few Mahogany Duns and at this point the Golden Stones are Kaput.
The Middle & Lower River is all the same but with even better hatches and dry fly action.
BWO’s and PMD’s and little Tan Caddis dries are the smack down patterns mostly.
Eggs are an obvious great choice as a nymph tied behind an October Caddis Pupa, Stonefly Nymph, or even a heavy PT, Copper John or Lightning Bug.

Bull Trout seem really full of Kokanee. From my close BT friends, they have seen a slow down in catches. Soon enough the Kokanee will be done and those fish will be on the hunt. Stay tuned.
