McKenzie and Willamette River Report/Fish Porn

fly fishing the mckenzie rainbow release

Fishing remains very good with a variety of tactics and imitations. Cloudy weather has had fish looking up particularly well the past couple of days. Important bugs for the McKenzie, lower Willamette, and Middle Fork of the Willamette include Green Drakes, Green McKenzie Caddis, Pale Morning Duns, small Caddis patterns, soft hackles and of course the standard Mega Prince and Possie Bugger. Prime June fishing came late this year but it’s likely to last for a while.

Colleen and Andrew Shipman bring us a nice report from the lower McKenzie River.

The big fish ate strong yesterday before the sun started coming out! Highlighted by 17, 18, & 19 inch redsides (Colleen nailed the 19’ 100 yards below Bellinger). Colleen also stuck a steelhead that ran straight up river & tail walked about 80 feet behind the boat and busted her 5X, awesome. Mega Prince & green caddis pupa emerger, all day. We broke up the coma producing thingmabobber with a green caddis dry & the smaller fish were all over it.

The lower McKenzie and on into the Willamette has been producing some nice fish as well.
