The McKenzie River located roughly two hours to our South, is the gem of the Willamette Valley. We fish the lower river where the trout are wild and native, and fairly willing to take your fly. Rainbow, Cutthroat, and Cutbows are all up for grabs, as are Steelhead in the Fall. You will fish both from the boat and while wading. All Techniques are proven winners here, but we typically concentrate on dry flies, emergers, and streamers.
With it's numerous long runs and gravel bars, this is a great river for those of you who have been interested in trying out a "trout spey". It's almost as if today's trout spey rods were designed with the Mac in mind. Because the River is bordered by lots of private property, we rarely have much competition for water, making this a very serine experience.
