Been fishing very well below Mackay Dam! Midges and BWOs provide for top water action. Small beadhead nymphs and leeches bring action below the surface.
With flows now close to 200 cfs out of Mackay Dam, the river around Mackay is very accessible. Get out and enjoy this great little river for the next few months. for now terrestrial, BWO and midge patterns will bring action.
Flow out of Mackay Dam is just over 300 cfs, so a good September is shaping up. You can walk-in and carefully wade now. Use midge life cycle patterns, bead head nymphs and terrestrial patterns for best results.
