In April 2022, I am offering a discounted rate for half day trips on the lower McKenzie for $400, a $50 discount off the regular rate. Spring offers some of the best fishing of the year for the lower McKenzie’s wild rainbow and cutthroat trout, with good nymphing opportunities throughout, and often great afternoon wet and dry fly fishing as hatches materialize. The best spring fishing is from mid-morning through midafternoon as things warm up a bit, and a half day trip is the perfect way to take advantage of this window of opportunity. A typical day involves meeting at 9:00 or 9:30 in the morning, spending about 5 hours on the river fishing, and reaching the takeout in the afternoon. All tackle, flies, etc. are included, along with beverages. All you need to bring is some rain gear, sunglasses, lunch, and a fishing license! What could be easier?
A typical day of fishing this time of year often involves fishing a number of different methods; nymphing, dropper-dry, swinging wet fly emergers, and often dry fly fishing. It is a great opportunity for beginners and experts alike to hone their skills and gain proficiency fishing these different methods.
I have days open here and there in April. Please call or email for availability, or if I can answer any questions.
