Get Ready for Green Drakes on the McKenzie and Willamette Rivers

Green Drakes

Late May is the time of year when the Green Drake emergence begins. The hatch can last into July so it’s a great time to have some drakes in your box. We see some of the nicest fish of the year recklessly attack Green Drake Adults when the hatch is intense. Typically a late afternoon affair, on warmer days the hatch can push into evening. Fish love both adult and struggling or emerging imitations. Here are some of our favorite patterns and videos.
