Hot Weather and Higher Flows on the McKenzie

IMG_0409

Fishing was surprisingly good yesterday on the upper McKenzie. Higher flows out of Cougar Reservoir and Blue River seemed to spurn activity despite the heat. 100 degrees plus heat meant mid day hatches were zero but fishing a mid sized (#10) Gold Chubby Chernobyl and a Mega Prince dropper was very effective.

The entire river is likely to benefit from the higher and cooler sustained flows we will see from the corps early summer release of water.
