Metiolus River Fall Drakes

An “idiot hole” can be either a spot where anyone can catch a fish, or a place that leaves even expert anglers feeling like they’ve lost their mojo. Oregon’s Metiolus is home to at least one of the latter, but fall’s hatches can change all that, according to Mark Morical in the Washington Olympian. “Autumn also brings the second green drake hatch of the season on the Metolius. The green drake hatch in June is well known and brings anglers from across the country when the large, olive-toned mayflies cover the river. The fall hatch, however, is known by relatively few and often surprises even local anglers.”
