Spring Chinook - Summer Steelhead - Trout Now Showing on the McKenzie River & Middle Fork WillametteSubmitted by John Gross on 27 May 2016 - 9:28am.
Gary was happy to land a feisty Summer Steelhead & a fresh Spring Chinook on Tuesday's trip down the McKenzie River. Action should continue to heat up in the weeks to come through June & July. On yesterday's trout trip we landed 21 Rainbows on about 35 takes on wets & dries. Great trout fishing should also continue through the summer.

Our Short Half-Day effort proved very successful on the McKenzie River Opener for planter trout. This is a very fun option available to us throughout the summer season. All our fish were caught on flies, so this is a great way to learn and practice fly fishing. Success like this can be a great introduction for novices and certainly helps to keep the attention span of youngsters. It's just a real fun way to enjoy the river.

As we wait for Spring Chinook to arrive in better numbers on the big coastal systems including the Rogue & Umpqua Rivers, it's fun to fill the time & coolers with a mess of chunky hatchery trout that ODFW has released in a variety of scenic lakes. The migration of Springers over Willamette Falls into the Upper Willamette System has been slow due to cool water temperatures and heavy river flow rates. This could all change drastically very soon as prevailing weather patterns trend toward milder temperatures and lower rainfall.

Todd & Jerry were very impressed with the quality and quantity of Rainbow Trout landed on flies during their recent McKenzie River drift boat adventure. They came to realize that even first-time fly fishermen can enjoy tremendous success when placed on good fish-holding water along with a few tips from the guide.
