Trout Fishing Heats Up On The McKenzie River

Fishing has been excellent this past week on the McKenzie River! We have been having a nice mix of hatchery and wild fish with high catch rates and good sized rainbow trout. The fish have been taking both dry and wet flies with a #12 orange elk hair caddis being the go to fly. Trout have also been hitting both lures and plugs as well. Both the middle section of the McKenzie above the dam and the section from Leaburd Dam down have  been very productive!
