The lower Mckenzie River near Eugene, specifically the drift from Hayden Bridge to Armitage Park fish fished surprisingly well yesterday. The water was high, around 6600cfs but softer inside turns and the few defined bars that were available did produce good action. Most of the fish were native Cutthroats from 6-12 inches, with a few rainbows mixed in. We did find one fish rising, dropped the anchor near him, cast a Hackle Stacker Flag dun Adams #14 on him and he ate it. That was it for the dry fly fishing. All of the other action was on a 2 fly rig cast down and across (traditional swung method) with a Possie Bugger #10 and a Royal Coachman Wet #12.
