We are dressing light these days on our summertime McKenzie River guided fishing trips. In addition to our lower river salmon & steelhead trips, we offer fly fishing trips for trout on the very scenic upper McKenzie River. These trips are quite sporting as they provide great family fun and even folks who have never tried a fly rod before, typically have great success landing trout on these trips. We network with a group of local guides to run multiple boat trips for group outings.

The boys from Colorado made it out again this summer and somehow conjured up enough vodoo to work their usual magic. In spite of low return numbers and ambient temperatures in the 90s, the gang managed 2 steelhead and 5 salmon to the net........not too shabby under the prevailing conditions.

A Heavy Rain Brings in Some McKenzie Biters

Julie & Cecil Moore had quite a day on the McKenzie River Chasing after Spring Chinook Salmonon Tuesday June 25th. Landing 3 Springers was enough of a diversion in order to tollerate a rediculous summer downpour. It truly felt like over 2 inches of rain fell during the trip as many buckets of water were bailed in order to lighten the rowing load. At times the rain slammed down so hard you had to drop your head or close your eyes. Still, the rain definitely pulled in new fish and put them in a cooperative spirit.
