Cloudy cool conditions are the perfect recipe for hatches on the McKenzie River. Anglers can expect Pale Morning Duns, Green McKenzie Caddis, March Browns and a few darker brown caddis hatching on lower McKenzie below Leaburg Dam. On the upper river Green Drakes, Caddis, little yellow stones and Pale Evening Duns are the key adult insects to watch for. Nymphing remains very successful with Jigged Prince Nymphs, Possie Buggers, Golden Stonefly nymphs, and Jigged Pheasant Tails.
Current water conditions remain extremely low. Wading opportunities abound! Fishing is very good!
