Summer dry fly fishing on the Metolius River in Oregon for native rainbow trout.
A true gem, the Metolius River challenges, frustrates and delights anglers of all abilities. Unraveling the legendary and incredibly diverse insect hatches is only one small part of a successful angler's playbook. Spring creek clarity, tricky currents and acrobatic and resourceful rainbow trout add to the challenge. And just when you think you got things figured out and you take your buddies there "to crush 'em", that will be the day the air smells like skunk.
To learn more about the Metolius River and its hatches you could do no better than pick up a copy of John Judy's "Seasons of the Metolius", visit the Camp Sherman Store or The Fly Fishers Place in Sisters.
Or, you could do as I do, and just hit "the Met" as often as life allows.
