Summer is Early in the Valley

Here it is late April, and it already feels like summer has arrived. With temperatures predicted into the mid-eighties this week, it should be a great time to be on the water.
Fishing has remained good out there this past week.

Even found the first summer steelhead of the season a couple days ago.

See you on the River!

A Great Spring for Fishing!

We have enjoyed a near perfect run of pleasant weather and optimal river conditions over the last couple of months.

Fishing has been very good at times both on the McKenzie and over on the coast range rivers.

The perfect conditions on the McKenzie resulted one of the best hatches of March Brown Mayflies in recent memory.

As the March Browns have tapered off, the Grannom Caddis hatch has been intense at times. Sometimes, there are so many bugs on the water, you have to fish something totally different to get the fish to even notice your fly.

Is there any better way to celebrate the coming of Spring than great dry fly fishing for native trout?
