Fall Fishing on the McKenzie October 2019

McKenzie fall2020


Cooler temperatures over the weekend kept the larger October Caddis and Short Winged Stoneflies from being overly active, but Blue Winged Olive hatches have been occurring daily. The warmest parts of the day have been the most productive on the Mckenzie and Willamette Rivers. Swinging flies on the lower McKenzie has picked up and the upper river hopper dropper program remains solid. This week looks really good for weather, get out and enjoy the fall.

Best flies:

Parachute Blue Winged Olives
Carlson’s Olive Haze
Mercer’s Missing Link
Parachute Adams
Hi Vis Parachute Adams
Goulds Half Down Golden
Orange Elk Hair Caddis
Assorted Soft Hackle Wets
