Yakima River Fishing Report: December 6th, 2017

It's a bit chilly out there, but if you are willing to bundle up and focus your fishing during the warmest part of the day (usually 12-4pm), there are some fish to caught. Nymphing will continue to be the most productive way to catch fish, with a Pat's trailed by either a pink worm or midge pupa. Streamer fishing can be good as well, although there seems to be a lot more variation day-to-day as far as pattern and color preference go, as well as the speed of the retrieve. General rule of thumb is low and slow when the water is cold, so keep that in mind whether you are fishing from the boat or swinging from the bank. Although the weather has turned cold, there is plenty of sunshine in the forecast for this week. Czome enjoy the slow season on the Yakima!
