It was another successful year for the 2016 McKenzie River Wooden Boat Festival. A light rain didn’t dampen spirits as boat owners and those that appreciate them gathered to view boats and watch demonstrations of fly tying and casting. A fundraising lunch was provided by the McKenzie Guides and raised money for the Free Life Jacket loan program. We also thank Cascade Family Fly Fishers for their support. You can view great photographs of this event at This LINK Thank you Lilly and West Coast Action Photos for being there.
