The Williamson River Hex Hatch, there is nothing else like it.

There is nothing better than fishing clients  along side a good friend and guide, while monster fish are sucking down monster flies, and that's exactly what has been going down the last few evenings. The excitement these huge bugs leave the clients with a huge smile and sore shoulders.
Thanks Brent Hublitz for sharing the past few evenings in friendly competition, and watching fish jump on the ends of all our lines!

The Williamson River, Oregon's Mini-Spey and Swing Destination for Trophy Trout!

When you mix July and the Williamson in the same sentence, most fly fishermen would think Hexagenia  Hatch and the huge Dry Flies that are fished at dusk, but there is another game in town. The hex hatch also opens up the river to become a great swing fishery. Watching a huge trout gulp down huge mayflies is a treat, but the “EAT” on a well swung fly is just as exciting—Pair that with the Micro Spey Rod and you may be in Trout Bliss. The hex hatch begins way before you see the huge mayfly dancing on the Williamson’s Surface, and if you’re savvy enough, and know the river you can take an advantage of it. The Micro Speys will help you to place the long mends you will need to present your impostor as the hex prime rib, that the trout have grown to love. Once you get it right…Hold On!
