Upper Mckenzie continues to drop and improve

Sunday evening we got out for a couple of hours down from Paradise Boat ramp on the upper Mckenzie. Fishing was active, both with nymphs and dries.  Earlier in the week I had put in at Frissel Bridge even higher up in the river. My thermometer read 44.2 at 9am. Yesterday at 3:45pm the water temp was 48.6 at Paradise. It really made a huge difference in terms of the level of activity. Hatches on the upper river include Green Drakes, Brown Caddis, Pale Morning Duns, Golden Stones and numerous small caddis species.CD
