Yakima River Fishing Report

September fishing is rocking and rolling here on the Yakima, and we suggest getting out here sooner rather than later for some of the best fishing of the season. Dries and dry-dropper rigs are putting good numbers of fish in the net, and with the variety of bug life we are seeing on the water, there are a lot of options as far as pattern selection goes. October Caddis, Craneflies, Shortwing Stones, BWO, Mahoganies and smaller terrestrials like ants and beetles are all on the menu and playing a role in the fish's diet. Cloudy days or late afternoons when the sun is starting to drop are best for surface action, but if the fishing is slow on top, a tungsten bead Hare's Ear or Psycho Prince should find some fish. It looks like we are back to warmer weather for this coming week, so come enjoy some great autumn weather and fishing!
