Late Summer Steelhead and Trout

We’ve had a nice run of fishing over the last few weeks. Trout fishing on the upper McKenzie has been the mainstay.

Most days we’ve run into some nice redsides in the morning followed by plenty of “breadside” trout for lunch. It’s truly a pleasure to be able to catch your lunch while enjoying a day on such beautiful waters.

Steelhead action has been slow to fair here of late. Generally, we’ve been finding a fish or two on each day out.

Overall, the fishing has been very pleasant. We haven’t yet been plagued by the smoke from all the forest fires to the south and east of us. The weather has been ideal. And we’ve been bringing in a bumper crop of blackberries, too!

Late summer in the Valley: nice work if you can get it!
