Fall weather has kicked in and trout fishing on the McKenzie is fantastic.
Best patterns are: Parachute Adams, Half Down Golden, Purple Para Rooster, Grey Drakes, Possie Buggers, Pheasant Tails, and Blue Winged Olives.
The Lower McKenzie has plenty of water to run. Hendricks to Hayden is largely clear of snags, left channels are passable. The upper river is a perfect height and insect activity is increasing daily.
Enjoy the fall!
