The Wizard Falls Fish Hatchery makes a fine destination to see the Metolius River. And, a few miles south is another nice vantage spot at the Lower Bridge.
The River in itself is amazing. It begins a few miles south of the Hatchery, emerging from basalt rock at 50,000 gallons per minute.
The bad news was that the fall weather remained cloudy and drizzly.
I took a short hike on the east side of the river from the Hatchery. On my outing I saw a few fly fishermen. The Metolius is a world-renowned fly fishing river.
Not a bad day at all.
