Mckenzie

Rating - Good   

Wednesday, May 01 2019
Will be stocked this week for the first time in 2019, with 6,000 legal-sized hatchery rainbow trout. All non-adipose fin-clipped trout must be released unharmed. Check page 46 of the 2018 Sport Fishing Regulations for bait restrictions in the segment you plan to fish. Beginning Nov. 1, anglers may only use lures and artificial flies. Fishing continues to be pretty good for summer steelhead downstream of Leaburg Dam. No new fish were captured at McKenzie Hatchery this week, so the total return to the hatchery this year stands at 4,377 spring Chinook and 216 summer steelhead for the year. The lower McKenzie River is open to retention of adipose fin-clipped salmon and steelhead and non-adipose fin-clipped steelhead greater than 24-inches long. A Columbia River Basin Endorsement is required for anglers targeting salmon and steelhead in the McKenzie.
