Metolius River Update July 1st, 2022

The Metolius has been fishing well. Green Drakes should be finished up now but nice caddis hatches are happening on most days. Golden stones are starting to become important and a dry-dropper setup with a golden stone and a small mayfly or caddis nymph 3-4 fet below it is a great setup. Nymphing has been hot and like we have previously mentioned a golden stone nymph followed by 10-12” of tippet and a small caddis or mayfly pattern is a great way to go. Tightline and indicator methods have both been producing fish. Stripping or dead drifting large streamers is a good way to target bulls. The Metolius is a great place to spend a summer day so get out there and get after some fish.
