This past week fishing on the lower Mckenzie and Middle Fork of the Willamette improved greatly. The high water this spring has the fish in better shape than I can remember. Hatches have improved and water temperatures have reached 53 degrees at times. We have truely turned the corner on a nasty spring. We are in “prime time” now. Green Caddis, Golden Stones, Possie Buggers, Little Yellow Stones, Pale Morning Duns, Mckenzie Caddis Wets and Soft Hackles are important patterns for you local fly selection.
Pictured below are some happy Caddis Fly guided clients including a Steelhead caught on 4x and a soft hackle, he drug us 3/4 of a mile. CD
