Made the trek to central Oregon for the first time in about 5 years and decided to concentrate on the Metolius. What an amazing river: crystal clear water, tons of easy access, easy wading, quality fish and an incredible setting. As usual on the Metolius, it takes some work to find feeding fish, but the effort is worth it. The weather on Thursday and Friday was relatively warm, with a mixed bag of steady (but light) hatches all afternoon . . . midges, olives, a green drake or two, various caddis, some PMDs, . . . but nothing in a quantity for the fish to really key on. Best fishing was just before dark, when fish started taking the October caddis pretty consistently. Lots of refusals, plenty of hookups and a even a few rainbows up to about 18" landed. Saturday was cold and windy at times, and the hatches were almost nonexistent. In 6 hours on the river below Wizard Falls I never saw a rising fish. Nymphing dredged up some whitefish but no trout. Some kokanee are still in the river but not so many that they get in the way of the trout fishing.
