We got a nice Steelhead & a Salmon in the morning and then switched gears for Rainbow Trout in the afternoon. 6 yr old Taylor put on a bit of a Trout Clinic in the afternoon showing all us old-timers just how it's done.

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.

In Memory of Chris

Long time friend and frequent guest of RFGS, Chrissy D. recently lost a hard-fought battle with cancer. Her love of life, people, and fishing lives on in our hearts and memories along with that unforgettable infectious laugh and smile. Chrissy is holding a massive McKenzie River Steelhead, one of many toads she put in the boat over our years fishing together.

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.
