The Kokanee ought to be showing up any day now

The Fly Fishers Place

Report Date:

The Metolius is very good and about the same report as the last 2 or 3, with tons of hatches going all through the river.
Upper River = Golden Stones, Caddis, PMD, Mahogany Duns and BWO
Middle River (Gorge to Bridge 99) = Golden Stones, Caddis, PMD, BWO, Mahogany Duns, Flav, Green Drake, Pacific Stones, Little Olive Stones (seem to be waning a bit now) and October Caddis.
Lower River = all the same bugs as the middle river!
The Kokanee ought to be showing up any day now. That means eggs.
Bull Trout fishing is excellent on streamers dead drifted, swung, stripped and even jigged around log jams and undercuts. A friend of mine was on the river a day or 2 ago and was wading quietly in a spot for trout, and this giant Bull trout swam up to his legs, circled twice and went under the cut bank. Trout like privacy sometimes, but they will come out to attack prey from those hiding spots too!
