Conditions : McKenzie River: The McKenzie River below Leaburg Lake is stocked with hatchery trout from the Leaburg Town Landing downstream to Hendricks Bridge. This stretch of river was boat stocked for the last time this season in early September. All non-adipose fin-clipped trout must be released unharmed.

This river reach is open to retention of adipose fin-clipped salmon and steelhead and non-adipose fin-clipped steelhead greater than 24 inches in length. A Columbia River Basin Endorsement is required for anglers targeting salmon and steelhead in the McKenzie. Gear is restricted to flies and lures, except bait use is allowed upstream of Hendricks Bridge through the end of the year.

Leaburg Dam is generally closed to all vehicle and pedestrian traffic from 8am-noon and 1pm-4pm Monday to Friday. Check EWEB’s website for current information and updates regarding dam access.

Spring Chinook salmon staging to spawn are often visible in the McKenzie River from the viewing platform in front of Leaburg Hatchery. Remember to plan your visit around dam closures!

The McKenzie River above Leaburg Lake was recently boat-stocked for the last time this season from Finn Rock to Ben and Kay Dorris Park with 2,750 hatchery trout. All non-adipose fin-clipped trout must be released unharmed.
