Techniques & Tips

Midges, baetis, and stonefly nymphs will continue to be effective patterns, but with more bugs available the fish are able to be a bit more selective. Caddis season is here and dry fly fishing has been pretty solid. Dry droppers are a great choice. Olive caddis patterns have been great.

7-Day Forecast

Weather is good and flows are remaining fairly steady so the McKenzie is fishing well. Fishing remains best from Finn Rock down to Ben & Kay boat ramps.
