McKenzie River Fish Report for 8-14-2021
The McKenzie River is fishing excellent
McKenzie River - Coburg, OR
by The Fly Fishers Place
The McKenzie River is fishing excellent. Euro Nymphs are awesome, and there is great action on dries like a Red Tarantula, Iris Caddis, Clarks Stone, Tandem Caddis Dries and Parachutes.
swinging nymphs and leeches out in front of the boat has been bringing many fish to the net.
Slightly concerned that the Butte Fire on the Upper McKenzie is burning still. Not a big fire, but it has now closed the upper river to fishing and river access from Trail Bridge Reservoir to Frissel Boat Ramp. We are all hoping this is resolved soon.
