There are still summer fish in the McKenzie, most of them are ABOVE the leaburg dam. I'd recommend fishing the Siuslaw for winters. Bigger, brighter fish that aren't all snaked out skinny from spawning. Lots of bank access on stagecoach road, and Siuslaw road.

Yep. The river's been on the drop for a while now, should be in real good shape. I prefer fishing lower just because whittaker can become a combat zone, but, during the week it might not be so bad. The best bank spots are the opposite side of the road.
