Drift Boat Fly Fishing Trips on the McKenzie River

 Drift Boat Fly Fishing
Drift boat fly fishing trips are for anglers of all skills and abilities, drift boats provide a safe and stable platform to cast a fly from and a comfortable seat to taken in the splendid scenery as we float down stream. The ideal craft for the river's many fun rapids and for chasing it's wild rainbow trout.

The Fly Fishing Season
Portions of the McKenzie are open all season, with the exception of the very wet periods of our Oregon winters good fly fishing can be found twelve months of the year; our prime season begins in early April and extends through October in most years. Along some sections of the river, hatchery trout and steelhead are also planted and we often catch them while fly fishing for the wild trout that are plentiful. Licensed anglers are permitted to take five hatchery trout and two steelhead per person, per day and all the wild trout must be released through the entire length of the river. 

The Fly Fishing Experience
The McKenzie is one of Oregon's most scenic waterways making the River and its world famous wild trout
fishery my most popular single day angling destination. Most accessible by drift boat, there are numerous
boat landings along it's length allowing for a tailored outing, also at times some sections "fish better" and
the many landings lets us target the best sections on any given day. A world class drift boat trip that is fun
and productive for both hatchery and wild rainbow trout. All fishing trips on the McKenzie include; quality
fly rods, reels, fly lines and flies. Fly Fishing is my specialty and I can teach anyone to cast in just a few
minutes and promise a fun and productive day even for those who have never fly fished or who are
new to angling or the sport.
The best part is, drift boats allow us to fish portions of the river that are out of the reach of bank
anglers and with my thirty five years of experience, guiding fly fishermen on the McKenzie, you
will be casting your flies to places and fish, that less experienced anglers over look or
can not reach.
