  After shaking off the loss of a challenging summer steelhead which won the battle by shaking the hook at the last minute, Gary was very pleased to make good on his first back-bounced Willamette Springer.

  Wes had an absolute blast and brought home not only a lot of stories & memories, but quite a few fillets as we went 12 for 14 over 3 days of salmon and steelhead fishing on his mid-July 2016 McKenzie River Vacation. Truth be told, we spent 1 afternoon with Wes's 6 year old grandson Taylor who put on a clinic of his own catching McKenzie Rainbows. No doubt Mom & his sisters got an earful once Taylor got home.

  Super high quality fish are still in the mix on our MF Willamette & McKenzie Salmon/Steelhead Combo Trips. Always a pleasure to connect with fish like these relatively late in the season.

In addition to some excellent fly fishing for trout, we now have Spring Chinook Salmon & feisty Summer Steelhead all producing some fun summer fishing action on the McKenzie. This past week, Julie and her Dad celebrated a combination Birthday-Fathers Day with a salmon/steelhead combo trip. In addition to Julie's big steelhead, they landed several nice Springers as well. Suffice to say, their Father's Day BBQ was plentiful!

Gary was happy to land a feisty Summer Steelhead & a fresh Spring Chinook on Tuesday's trip down the McKenzie River. Action should continue to heat up in the weeks to come through June & July. On yesterday's trout trip we landed 21 Rainbows on about 35 takes on wets & dries. Great trout fishing should also continue through the summer.

  Fishing was great on the Elk & Sixes Rivers for a couple weeks or more while we had enough water in the rivers to invite the returning salmon and to float drift boats. While Seattle and Portland have been hammered with rain, recent storms have somehow missed Port Orford causing me to have to reschedule this weeks' trips due to low water levels in the rivers. Bring on the Rain!
