Yakima River Winter Fishing Report: January 14, 2018

All the warm weather and melting snow caught up with us, with the Yakima taking a bump of about 500 cfs over the last 24 hours. Up until yeterday evening the river stayed in suprisingly good shape, and fished well for Todd and Stefan who were out on a two-boat guide trip. Pat's stones in coffee/black and pink San Juans were the order of the day, fished in the super slow water with 4-6' of depth. It looks like this push of water will be short lived, so if you can sneak out midweek, a dropping river should kick out some fish. If you are looking to get some fishing in during the last day of the holiday weekend, Rocky Ford will robaly be your best bet, although you can expect some company!
