McKenzie River Fly Fishing Report Late August 2017

McKenzie River

The McKenzie River remains our best bet locally and water conditions remain excellent. I have been seeing more and more insects over the past few days. Small tan caddis, a few Grey Drakes and Mahogany Duns have been available to the trout. Dry fly fishing was excellent today and we saw some better fish willing to sip the small dry.

Air quality was very poor today, pretty sure the smoke was like cloud cover. The fish did not seem to mind at all.

A few key patterns to have in the box at the moment are.

Parachute Purple Rooster #12-14

Parachute Caddis #14-16

Standard Elk Hair Caddis Tan #14-16

Parachute Adams #12-16
