McKenzie River

The McKenzie River flows cold and clear from its Cascade Mountain headwaters all the way to its confluence with the Willamette River near Eugene , Oregon . Probably best known for its wonderful trout fly fishery and spectacular insect hatches, the McKenzie also hosts a very good summer steelhead run and spring Chinook salmon fishery. I offer guided trips on this river system from late winters March Brown hatch all the through the season until the end of October. All of my trips on the McKenzie are done from my new Willie 16’ guide model drift boat or my specially designed fly fishing powerboat. These boats provides the safest most comfortable way to maneuver through some of the worlds most famous rapids and white water sections. Fly fishing for trout and steelhead is extremely productive throughout the season. Conventional gear trips are also offered by Dean Finnerty Guides and Outfitters for the spring Chinook fishery as well as some summer steelhead opportunities.
