McKenzie River Trout Fly Fishing

Tuesday's upper McKenzie River Trout Fly Fishing drift boat trip certainly proved fun & fruitful and certainly substantiated that McKenzie River trout fly action remains excellent and in fact fast & furious.  As we pulled into the very first riffle just to demonstrate a new fly technique and the corresponding fly set-up, it was "Fish On!" instantly.  As the day progressed, action would continue to heat up and just get better and better.  My guests "Chill" Wills and his buddy Ricky were a total hoot constantly ribbing on one another as they had me in stitches the entire day.     While [...]

Enjoy the following photos & comments from a recent McKenzie River Trout Trip.  Kind words from our guests:  John, Thanks for the pictures. Everyone had a fantastic time.

Wes Connected with Numerous Late-Run Spring Chinook Over the past 10 days we have had great luck finding some quality Spring Chinook, mostly of  hatchery origin.  To our delight, all the fish retained had nice orange meat.  Back-bouncing baits, running baits behind divers, and even plugs all produced strikes.  Wes spent 2 days of his vacation successfully chasing after big fish and then also did a day of fly fishing for Rainbow Trout on the very scenic upper McKenzie River with his son Wes Jr. and grandson Taylor also joining in on the fun.  It was great to watch all three [...]

Tim & Connie were down visiting from Port Angeles, Washington on Monday and enjoyed a long and scenic upper McKenzie River trout fishing float. Though hardly fly fishing experts, with attention and determination both landed plenty of scrappy McKenzie Rainbows, all on flies. We used both wet and dry flies and found success on both. We covered almost 11 river miles and found cooperative fish throughout the riffles, runs and pools separated by occasional larger rapids that occurred in areas of higher gradient and which characterize the upper river.  The McKenzie River Drift Boat actually evolved on the McKenzie  River.

2016 SPRING-SUMMER NEWSLETTER FROM ROARING FORK GUIDE SERVICE

  John Gross - Roaring Fork Guide Service – Newsletter – Spring/Summer - 2016 Spring Greetings Folks- Yes it's that time of year again when we recap the past season's highlights and look ahead to the 2016 fishing season. While we fishermen prefer to avoid the dreaded ”D” word, fact is, drought conditions have presented numerous challenges over the past four summer seasons, especially in the late summer months. We all know salmon, trout and steelhead thrive in water which is cool, clean and plentiful. Low river levels with warm algae-laden water has hardly been the ideal fishing scenario. Fortunately, [...]
