The McKenzie is a bit on the high side but fishable.  The McKenzie closes above Blue River on October 31.  

Trout: Lower river From Leaburg Dam down to the confluence.   Nymph fishing with October Caddis Pupa and a BH Flashback PT has worked quite well.  We have been picking up some big native rainbows.  Water temps are starting to drop and this will slow down the fishing.

Steelhead:Try using Clown Eggs, Cabellero Eggs, and other various egg patterns. If your into swinging flies then try Purple Articulated Leeches, Purple Perils, Summer Runs and Fly Dejour.
