Middle Fork of the Willamette: High Water and Fishing Well

Middle fork of the Willamette

The Middle Fork of the Willamette is running high and green. Fishing has been really good. The Green McKenzie Caddis hatch has been prolific. On overcast days the hatch has been all day, on brighter days the afternoon evening Green McKenzie Caddis activity has been excellent.

The release out of Hills Creek dam is 2000CFS and downstream of the North Fork of the Willamette the river swells to over 3000CFS. Look for the Corps of Engineers to curtail the flow at some point soon. Fishing will remain solid or get even better with a little lower water.
