Lots of choices when it comes to Fall Fishing

Lots of choices when it comes to Fall Fishing

Last week I had the priviledge of introducing a couple guys from out-of-town to the McKenzie River. They were looking for a couple days of mostly fly fishing and got to see quite a bit of river as we did about 10 miles each day. Day 1 we fished the upper river and gave the guys a few good rides through some white water with a chance to enjoy the scenic majesty along the river.

Steelhead fishing success often comes down to a combination of skill & good fortune.

A mix of luck and skill may have combined to produce a nice pair of McKenzie River Summer Run Steelhead for Frank and Tina on day 2 of their McKenzie Valley visit to enjoy our local waters. F & T are old friends from decades ago (college), so it was fun to share old memories and get the update on recent events as both their sons got married this summer.
