Would you like a full day of fun and excitement with a guided fly-fishing trip for Oregon Trout on the world famous McKenzie River? The McKenzie is well known as a challenging white water river for dry fly fishing. However some sections of the river can provide fly-fishing enjoyment for the beginning fly fisher as well. This trip is all about McKenzie River fly fishing here in Oregon and the natural wonders of the outdoors that is near Eugene.
Drift boat fly fishing on the McKenzie River is a wonderful place for a father and son or daughter to spend quality time together learning how to fly fish. Why not consider a fly-fishing trip for Fathers Day or a birthday gift for someone special? A full day on the river includes a nice shore lunch on the banks of the clear flowing McKenzie. Gift certificates for all our fishing trips are also available and can be arranged to meet customer special needs.
You may want to take a corporate client or your business partner on a guided fly-fishing trip. The benefits are unforgettable and everlasting, just think of a McKenzie River fly-fishing trip as a golf course on the water, only better.
The trout season usually starts about the first week of April and continues until the last
week of September. The ideal months for fly fishing and water conditions starts in June
and continues thru the end of September.
Many Native Rainbow and Cutthroat trout are found in the lower reaches of the
McKenzie River below Hendricks Bridge to the Willamette River. Planted Rainbow
Trout in good numbers are above Hendricks Bridge up river 20 miles to Silver Creek boat
We may do some wade fishing but most of our fishing is done from a safe and stable 16-
ft. Willie drift boat; we fish two persons per boat. All the necessary fly fishing gear and
flies are provided plus a mid-day shore lunch. We can also arrange for pickup at your
motel or we can meet you up river if you prefer. Dress for the currant weather condition
and remember to bring your sunscreen and sunglasses.
