We ran 3 very fun & productive trips this past week with Bosey G. The excitement started with an impromptu afternoon-evening drift mostly swinging flies for steelhead in the chop and tail-outs. We ended up with a surprise late season salmon in the very last tailout. What a great fight it gave us on steelhead gear! Given the late calendar date, we were blown away by the wonderful condition of this hatchery "Springer" caught on August 27 and which cut a beautiful orange colored meat and barbequed up like a May 1st Spring Chinook. Yum, Yum! The following 2 days we enjoyed some excellent fly fishing for a mix of hatchery and wild Trout on the Upper and Lower McKenzie.

Through the end of summer we have a great Trout fishery available on the beautiful McKenzie River. Though these fish will take readily to spinners and ultra-light equipment, they are particularly susceptible to flies, both wet & dry. This makes these trips a fantastic introduction for novice fly fishermen. My guests this past week can testify that folks with little to no previous fly fishing experience can enjoy great success with the fly. John & Gary had numerous doubles on throughout the day and had no trouble releasing plenty of fish while still retaining a nice limit of feisty hatchery scrappers to take home for a fish fry. This fishery is also a fun and engaging way to introduce kids to fishing as are our Umpqua Bass trips.....lots of action, lots of fish.

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!

John & Hank had a great day last Friday batting 1000 as they went 4 for 4 on McKenzie River Spring Chinook. Salmon continue to migrate over Willamette Falls at a rate of several hundred per day. If this rate remains consistent, we should continue to find fish well into July.
