RT enjoyed a magical 2 days on the McKenzie River in late September. We did several different runs on the upper river targeting trout on the fly. Ron did an exceptional job of placing the flies right where fish live and the fish were indeed quite responsive. Both days he landed a bunch of scrappy trout, both wild and of hatchery origin. We used a combination of dries and nymphs with the wets working better in the morning and with the dries proving more productive in the afternoon.

As usual, we've been enjoying some very fun trips on the upper McKenzie River fly fishing for trout. River traffic is way down, in fact, next to nothing with students back in school. Cooler temperatures and colors in the fall leaves all contribute to that special time of year when the afternoon trout action can be phenomenal!

We have begun our coastal salmon trips for Fall 2016. Trolling the Bays and the lower reaches of our coastal river is often the ticket to finding beautiful big fresh Chrome. This fortunate guest was blessed with a Chunky Siuslaw Toad on Tuesday's trip. Meanwhile, we continue to enjoy consistent success on our McKenzie River drift boat trips chasing down scrappy rainbows. Even novice fly fishers are doing well on the aggressive Rainbow Trout.

The gorgeous Upper McKenzie River distinguishes itself from the lower reaches as faster, shallower, and with more gradient. Boaters need to pay closer attention while plying the waters and fishermen need greater accuracy, especially when picking apart the tiny pockets located within a rapid and the micro flats or steps that comprise a given gradient. With a little direction from his guide, Bosey did a great job of locating the miniscule fish-holding buckets, often no larger than a standard bathtub, as he deftly worked his flies down through swift and choppy gradients.
