Wes had an absolute blast and brought home not only a lot of stories & memories, but quite a few fillets as we went 12 for 14 over 3 days of salmon and steelhead fishing on his mid-July 2016 McKenzie River Vacation. Truth be told, we spent 1 afternoon with Wes's 6 year old grandson Taylor who put on a clinic of his own catching McKenzie Rainbows. No doubt Mom & his sisters got an earful once Taylor got home.

Super high quality fish are still in the mix on our MF Willamette & McKenzie Salmon/Steelhead Combo Trips. Always a pleasure to connect with fish like these relatively late in the season.

After shaking off the loss of a challenging summer steelhead which won the battle by shaking the hook at the last minute, Gary was very pleased to make good on his first back-bounced Willamette Springer.

In addition to some excellent fly fishing for trout, we now have Spring Chinook Salmon & feisty Summer Steelhead all producing some fun summer fishing action on the McKenzie. This past week, Julie and her Dad celebrated a combination Birthday-Fathers Day with a salmon/steelhead combo trip. In addition to Julie's big steelhead, they landed several nice Springers as well. Suffice to say, their Father's Day BBQ was plentiful!
