Yakima River Fly Fishing Report

THe river below Wilson Creek took a bump Friday night, which means the entire canyon section is unfishable. With some cold overnight temps still in the forecast, we should see things clear up relatively quick, but for now, stick to fishing the farmlands or upper river with a Pat's/San Juan or small sculpin pattern, or, head to Rocky Ford for a shot at some of the largest trout in the state. Many of the Columbia Basin lakes opened March 1st, and we will have an update on stillwater and which lakes are still under ice by the end of the week.
