Upper McKenzie River fishing well on foot

Looking for Native McKenzie Rainbows? For those of you willing to put in some walking, the Upper McKenzie River (above Blue River) is fishing great on foot with summer low water conditions making it easy to get around. High quality fish-holding spots (deep pools and drop offs) can be spread out pretty far, so you have to be willing to hike up and down the river a bit to find them.

No major hatches going off last night, but fish were taking dries as well as megaprince and hares ear nymphs.
