McKenzie River still awaiting March Browns

Today was a textbook March Brown overcast warm day. According to Barrett, one of our guides who was out today below Bellinger, the bugs were few and far between.  He said there were a few March Browns coming off mid-day but not enough to get the trout to the surface.  The fish were not even taking swung wet flies but they were taking dead-drifted nymphs and there were some larger fish caught up to 17″.  It’s getting close, but we need the water to warm just a bit to get the hatch in full swing.
