McKenzie warming up and hatches improving

The lower McKenzie near Eugene continues to improve. Yesterday an excellent emergence of Pale Morning Duns had fish eating swung soft hackles and Possie Buggers. Nymphing was also effective.




Today the nymphing proved to be the most productive tactic. Bright windy conditions caused most adult insects to blow off the water rather quickly. The really good news about today is that there were good numbers of big Green McKenzie Caddis around. The fish were’nt going bonkers for them but it is only a matter of time.–CD
