McKenzie River, Oregon Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Caddis are still on the menu in all life cycle stages. Primarily, they are in the size 14-18 range in a range of colors from tan and olive to black. A few October caddis have been spotted but the bulk of the hatch will likely begin late this month. However, pupas are definitely on the menu for most of the month. Possie buggers, stonefly nymphs, Pheasant Tails, Copper Johns, Caddis Pupa, and midges will all get the job done. Indicator rigs will be your best bet but bring a dry fly rod just in case. Look for rising fish in current seams and the heads and tails of pools, especially on overcast days.
