Warm Fall days extend local trout success



The McKenzie and Willamette Rivers are experiencing excellent fly fishing conditions and reports up and down both rivers have been excellent. Rainy days are upon us and Blue Winged Olive patterns, October Caddis patterns, Dark Cahills, Parachute Adams, Orange Elk Hair Caddis and Mega Prince have been doing damage on our local waters. Water conditions are holding up nicely despite the rain. Don’t let a little bit of rain keep you from enjoying some superb fall fishing.

This Friday we had bizarre conditions on the water. In and out of the steam we floated. With air temperatures edging towards 70 degrees and water temps heading downwards towards 50, windless on the water, a thin layer of steam/mist/fog blanketed the surface. When the sun would win out over the steam insects were abundant and the fish we happy to take a dry or nymph fished on the slower edges.–CD
