Yakima River Fishing Report

Now is the time to fish the Yakima! The river is still on a steady (albeit slow) drop, and the fishing with both big dries and dry-dropper has been great. Fishing the big bugs early and late with a twitch every now and again has been bringing some nice fish up, and when the sun hits the water, dropping a small tungsten beadhead under a high-floating foam bug has been great in the faster water. The last 10 days of August are looking great, and fall flows, October Caddis and Craneflies will be here soon!
