Reach for the sky! / McKenzie River Fly Fishing Guide

Michael Gorman's Oregon Fishing Guides focus on fly fishing for two species:
trout and steelhead.
The McKenzie River is our top trout fishing choice, while the Rogue River is tops for summer/fall steelhead.  For Oregon winter steelhead, we specialize in guiding the Siletz River.   Our McKenzie River fly fishing guides, and Siletz and Rogue River fly fishing guides, are at your service.  Let the fun begin!


Oregon Guided Trout Fishing Trips

The native rainbow trout of McKenzie River, upper Willamette, and Santiam River are abundant and willing.  All have less numerous, but healthy, populations of cuttrhoat trout, too.

Our McKenzie River fishing guides begin the year in late February, near Eugene.  The McKenzie River is famous for its native "redsides" rainbows.  If the water is warm enough, late February will see the beginning of the mid day March Brown mayfly hatch.  Rising fish will take an adult or cripple pattern with consistency.  When the McKenzie River trout are not rising, a well-presented deep nymph will produce some of the year's largest trout from February thru mid April.

As the water continues to warm on the McKenzie River into May and June, surface fishing with dry flies and soft hackle patterns becomes more consistent.

Steelhead  Fishing Trips


    Because of their size, fighting acrobatics, and temperamental ways, steelhead are considered by those who have caught them to be the most coveted gamefish in freshwater.   Using a fly rod to catch these fish, especially during the winter season, adds to the challenge and satisfaction of this angling experience.  Our Oregon steelhead guides specialize in using ALL appropriate fly fishing methods: wet fly, dry fly, and nymphing.

    Since Rogue River guided steelhead fly fishing trips are --- by far --- our most popular outings of the entire fishing year, we recommend you attempt to book a year in advance, though we may have a few unexpected openings.   Many of our returning clients will book three or four trips during our August through November season! 
    For those that want a chance to catch a winter steelhead on the fly, Oregon's Siletz River is our top choice.  Many fly anglers have hooked summer steelhead, but few have succeded  in the winter.  If you are up for the challenge, contact us.
    Check out our "Rogue River Steelhead Pictures" and "Siletz River Steelhead Pictures" links towards the top of this page.

December through March
will find us on the Siletz River.  The Siletz is a boating trip. 

Late June through early August we pursue summer steelhead and trout in a drift boat on the South Santiam River

Mid August through November
we focus on southern Oregon's Rogue River steelhead.  Our Rogue clients often book a year in advance to assure a reservation on this world-famous fishery.  Rogue River guided fishing for steelhead is as good as it gets, and our Rogue River fishing guides are patient, effective teachers.
