McKenzie River Fish Report for 8-9-2021
McKenzie river is fishing excellent
McKenzie River - Coburg, OR
by The Fly Fishers Place
Every one of the guys that wrote me back that guide the McKenzie River (Steve, Troy and Tonn) said the river is fishing excellent. Besides the fact that they are crushing fish on Euro Nymphs, they all reported good action on Dries like a Red Tarantula, Iris Caddis, Clarks Stone, Tandem Caddis Dries and Parachutes.
Leeches were another top comment from the guides, swinging them out in front of the boat, and Soft Hackles with a Heavy Bead to keep it deep in the fast currents.
I love that the McKenzie ended up fishing so well after last years fire. It is also nice to see some restoration already happening, both naturally and by agencies that care about the river corridor.
