This past Monday I did a quick lower river float, (Hendricks to Hayden) with Liz Perkin of Native Fish Society and Dave Thomas (NFS McKenzie River Fish Steward ) of Eugene. Our discussions were wide ranging but largely focussed on wild fish in the Willamette Basin. I was reminded of how impressive the Lower McKenzie Wild Trout Population Study was in every way. If you haven’t checked out the study please have a look. The data is fantastic and as many of you know the lower river has some of the best fishing on the entire McKenzie. It is my hope that we can see this section of wild fish expand further in the future. Stay Tuned!
