Despite what looks like a super hot, super low water year in the making the lower McKenzie is full of water. The Walterville Canal is currently empty and the lack of water diversion is giving stretches of water like Hendricks to Hayden and Hayden to Armitage excellent flows and water temps. Euro Nymphing was very effective yesterday using Sens Improved Jigged Twenty Incher and Berry’s PCP (Pink Copper Peacock) in a tandem rig.

Get out there and enjoy while we still have water! Evening hatches of Pale Evening Duns, Caddis, little yellow stones and even a few Green Drakes.
