Now through May 15th, I am offering a half day guided flyfishing trips on the lower McKenzie for $275, a $50 discount off the regular rate. These trips include about 5 hours of floating and fishing by drift boat, drinks, fishing tackle, flies, accessories, and expert instruction. All you need is a fishing license, a hat, sunglasses and rain gear. What could be easier?
The convenient proximity of the lower McKenzie to the Eugene/Springfield area makes this trip an easy one, and the spring season on this section of the river offers some of the best fishing of the year for wild rainbow and cutthroat trout.
This week the McKenzie’s wild trout have been responding well to various dead-drifted nymph patterns. As the March Brown hatch gets going later this month, the fishing opportunities on any given day will include nymphing, wet fly as well as dry fly fishing. This is a great opportunity to get out on the water for a reasonable price, learn a great deal, and catch some beautiful fish. The spring season on the lower McKenzie is not to be missed. This is some of my favorite trout fishing of the year.
