After enduring rain for most of March and April – May has brought us plenty of sunny and warm weather. It has been splendid to be on the McKenzie River – multiple times in the last week. As you can see spring is here – the trees are abundant with leaves and blue skies with the occasional cloud.

With all this warm weather – one would expect lots of bug activity on the surface. This hasn’t been the case on the McKenzie. Although the occasional fish will come and look at the indicator – nymphing is still the most productive method to hook a McKenzie Red Side. And there are some nice sized rainbows on the McKenzie and they still continue to take the Mega Prince! We have also had success fishing soft hackles.

If you haven’t gotten out in this sunshine to fish – get out this weekend – as weather prediction says we should see some showers next week.
