It felt like a late Spring day on the lower McKenzie yesterday. Patches of sun and cloud, perfect water levels and good nymph fishing.
Most of our fish were taken in water with a depth of 4-8ft. Fish ranged in size from 8-16 inches and were in fine shape.
We floated from Hendricks to Hayden Bridge and the water looks fantastic this year. Classic riffles looked great, but were not holding fish like the slower deeper water below them.
The weather and water conditions are looking great for the next week or so, get out and enjoy some of our early season trout fishing.
