Fishing on the McKenzie Remains Strong

Start of fall on the McKenzie

Water levels have come down a bit and hatches are increasing the McKenzie River. We are looking at a cool down in terms of weather that will turn the lower river on and have then entire river fishing well. Look for Gray Drakes, small tan Caddis, Mahogany Duns, and even October Caddis. We have yet to see numbers of October caddis but it’s a great time to fish the pupae.

Here are a few good patterns to have on hand at this time of the year:

Anderson’s Bird of Prey October Caddis Pupae

Morrish’s W.M.D October Caddis

Kingrey’s Better Foam Caddis

Mahogany Dun

Parachute Purple Rooster
