The McKenzie is fishing really well for us. Most of the good fish are coming to the nymph fished tight line, but dry-droppers are taking fish in the riffles and just a good hatch of yellow mayflies, a mix of stones and caddis have been making opportunities for dry fly fishing on most days. The Upper and Middle River to about Leaburg is seeing good water temperatures but lowering flows. I’ve heard the lower river towards Springfield is getting warm with sluggish activity.
