Yesterday's catch will be long remembered by both my guest Russ and myself. While working one of the McKenzie's Salmon holes in search of a willing Spring Chinook, we noticed the silhouettes of 4 steelhead laying toward the tailout. Very low water, sunshine and swirling inconsistent currents make fishing this piece of water difficult and often an effort in futility. Normally by the time you position the boat to where you can actually get an accurate presentation, the fish see you and subsequently disappear upstream into the depths of the pool. Regardless, we decided to take on the challenge.

We are dressing light these days on our summertime McKenzie River guided fishing trips. In addition to our lower river salmon & steelhead trips, we offer fly fishing trips for trout on the very scenic upper McKenzie River. These trips are quite sporting as they provide great family fun and even folks who have never tried a fly rod before, typically have great success landing trout on these trips. We network with a group of local guides to run multiple boat trips for group outings.

People aren't the only ones on the river who got hot and thirsty during our recent mini heat wave. While fishing, we were treated to a few minutes of elk viewing on the McKenzie as 3 cows came down to cool off and get an ice cold drink. They were so thirsty that they were absolutely gulping the water down. It was fun to observe.

Julie & Cecil Moore had quite a day on the McKenzie River Chasing after Spring Chinook Salmonon Tuesday June 25th. Landing 3 Springers was enough of a diversion in order to tollerate a rediculous summer downpour. It truly felt like over 2 inches of rain fell during the trip as many buckets of water were bailed in order to lighten the rowing load. At times the rain slammed down so hard you had to drop your head or close your eyes. Still, the rain definitely pulled in new fish and put them in a cooperative spirit.
