The McKenzie River has finally dropped into shape and is fishing great. Top to bottom the river is turning on in a big way. Water temperatures are increasing and so is insect activity. Anglers need an array of flies to cover a variety of adult insects emerging on the river. Below is a list of important fly patterns for the end of May and into June. The weather looks great for the week ahead. Enjoy your holiday weekend.
