Yellow Sally hatch on the McKenzie River

Here are some photos from last night’s trip on the lower McKenzie River with Wild Bill. The Yellow Sally stoneflieswere going nuts. Bill picked up the pattern on the recommendation of Chad at The Caddis Fly. The little yellow stones were coming off like a blizzard and 12-15 inch cutthroats were busting them all over. The frenzy really didn’t get started until around 8pm. We spooked some incoming steelhead as well — THEY’RE HERE. 

The night ended on a sad note though: some Springfield Tweaker busted into Bill’s truck, broke out his driver side window, ripped out the center console and stole his wallet. Nothing new at Hayden Bridge, but still terrible.
