Early April McKenzie River Report 2021

I’ve gotten out the past week a few times with success. Days can be slow at first, but they’ll begin to pick up once it warms up a little.
Dry-fly hatches have been as early as 11 a.m. or just begin mid-afternoon.
Be sure to have nymphs, drys, and even soft-hackles (I saw a guide out there with a client crushing it every cast).
Overall, Good.
