Winter Trouting and the return of the McKenzie River Spring Special


While the local angling population focusses on the siren song of winter steelheading, the McKenzie River is quietly waking from its midwinter slumber. On a recent midday outing, Fred and I managed a couple of nice redsides on nymphs and had the river to ourselves.

As we transition into the new season here in the Valley, trout fishing will steadily improve. Sometimes a few hours floating and some chunky trout can be a welcome respite from the chaos and drama of day-to-day reality.

If you find yourself needing a break from all the noise, we’re once again offering the

McKenzie River Spring Special Rate:  $275/boat for a 4-5 hour trout fishing tour.

The MRSS runs from February 1 – April 20, 2017.  Limit 2 anglers/boat. All fly fishing gear and flies as well as water & sodas provided. BYO lunch/snacks.
