January 2023 Lower Mckenzie Report

The family and I got dressed up for the frozen tundra and made the float from Hendricks to Hayden. The fishing was surprisingly good and the weather wasn’t too bad either. We encountered absolutely zero bugs but nymphing was solid. The other surprise was that we did not catch one whitefish. Water temp was 44-46 degrees Fahrenheit. Air temps varied, we had sun, plenty of wind and clouds. Best nymphs were Sili Leg Stone and “Sens 20 Incher”.
