Local Fishing Heating Up – Trout and Steelhead Fishing Very Good

Mckenzie river fall 2016

The past week of cooler weather has spurned some very good fishing in our area. Grey Drakes and Mahogany Duns have been hatching daily on the McKenzie. It’s time to fish October Caddis pupae deep as fish are gorging on the high calorie subsurface “morsels”.

Steelheading has improved with some cooler nights, and there are plenty of fish around to keep folks busy on the McKenzie and Willamette Rivers. Reverse Marabou and Marabou Tube patterns are working well.
