John Gross – Roaring Fork Guide Service – 2017 Newsletter Spring Greetings Friends, I hope our Newsletter finds you in good health and demeanor. As the years roll on, it certainly seems that health matters become a greater concern and perhaps an all too increasingly regular topic of conversation. But enough chatter. The good news for 2017 is lots and lots of water in our rivers. Our Pacific Coast and much of the West for that matter, got smacked with major rainfall this past fall & winter, and rain continues as I write. Flooding as far south as Southern California [...]

Candlelighters Fishing Trip for Kids – 2016

by admin
Dear John- I want to thank you once again for spending your day on the river with our Candlelighter Kids. I so appreciate you giving your day to spend it with our kids. It was a great day for our kids, one they won't soon forget. Many would never get the opportunity to fish on the river if not for guide like you. Thank you again, Mary Lou

Dear John, Thank you so much for a memorable day on the river. The Damsel Flies that fished with you on July 10, 2010 will remember the day fondly. One Damsel who had never caught a fish on a fly is now hooked forever. The fish fry on the shoreline was another highlight. Each guide made a special effort to make sure we had a great time...and we did. This is our second year on the McKenzie with you and we hope to make it an annual outing. Thanks for a wonderful day! Fondly, The Damsel Flies

Great Action on the McKenzie River

We ran a quick late afternoon-evening float yesterday on the McKenzie River.  It was a warm evening with a few bugs showing and the action was plentiful.  Landing over 20 fish on a very short float made for an exciting drift.  We caught a mix of hatchery fish that ranged from 8-14 inches as well as some deep-bodied, wide-shouldered  wild chunkers that took the reels well into the backing.  Both dries and nymphs produced equally well.   What GREAT FUN! Here are some examples of the Rainbow Trout we typically encounter on the majestic McKenzie

A mix of wild and hatchery-raised Rainbow Trout are now available on the McKenzie River.  Both the upper and lower river are producing catches.  McKenzie trout respond readily to flies which provide great fun for both novice and expert fly fishers.
