The McKenzie River is seeing a tremendous variety of hatches this late spring early summer season. Golden Stones, Green Drakes and rusty colored Caddis are some of the larger bugs(patterns in the 8-12 size range). Pale Morning Duns, Pink Ladies, Little Yellow stoneflies and small tan caddis are among the smaller insects(patterns in the 14-16 size range).
Cloudy days will see hatches all day. We are looking at some really warm days coming up, on those hot days hatches will be best from 5pm-dark. Water levels are ideal and fishing has been excellent!
