Morning proves most productive on upper Mckenzie River

Our local weather has been just about perfect lately. Cool mornings and evenings,  warm but not blazing during the day. The last day of July felt more like  June on the upper Mckenzie. Hatches of large cinnoman caddis, Pale Morning Duns, Little Yellow stones and Green Drakes were present.  Fishing was best in the hours before 1pm. Little wind and plenty of shade had some very nice fish looking up to large golden stone imitations, and per usual, unable to let the Possie Bugger go by. We caught a boat load lively, beautifully colored native rainbow and cutthroat trout in the 6-12 inch range as well as several “oversized” fish.-CD
