A Hint of Fall in the Air: Local Fishing is on the Improve

Mckenzie river August 2015

Dry fly fishing in the morning and evening has been considerable better lately on the McKenzie and Willamette Rivers. The further removed we are from those blistering hot days of July the better the fishing has been. Water levels remain low but fish are looking up. Spent mayflies seem to be the preferred imitation for fish in the morning. Adult mayflies and small caddis are the most productive patterns in the evenings.

Seeking deeper runs and “drop off’s” remains very productive throughout the day with “Hopper Dropper Rigs”. Best patterns include Jigged Possie Buggers and CDC Jigged Pheasant Tails.
