McKenzie River, March 4, 2006

After a very wet winter, we're having some beautiful weather in the Willamette Valley and the rivers are dropping into shape. Today, the forecast was sun in the morning, with possible showers in the p.m., high temp 55F; nice conditions for the March Brown hatch on the Lower McKenzie at Armitage Park. The water was cold and the sun stayed bright, so there wasn't much of a hatch -- I only saw one dun on the surface. Even so, it was a lovely afternoon and I managed to land five cutthroat & cutt/rainbow crosses ranging from 8 - 12 inches, all on the same #12 Brown Hackle Bee. It will only get better from here, so watch this space. Best,
