It’s Springtime on the McKenzie, and the fish are jumping! The Green Caddis are out, and trout are showing their excitement by leaping clear out of the heavy riffles to attack these bouncing bugs. The first significant annual big-bug hatch makes for some of our favorite fishing of the year!
It’s also the perfect time to bust out the Tenkara Rods, as these big active bugs are best danced on the heavy riffle water near the boat. A recent pure Tenkara outing with Fred and John was an excellent case in point.
