Yakima River Fly Fishing Report

November 17, 2016

It's starting to feel a little like winter here in Central Washington, with ice in the bottom of the boat the last few mornings, and cooler daytime temperatures. The fishing has remained solid however, with one great nymphing and trout spey fishing happening in the canyon and farmlands. A brown/balck #10 Pat's Stone trailed by a pink San Juan Worm has been the ticket for those wanting to catch some fish nymphing. Our tip of the week..fish yarn! Yarn indicators have been a must lately, with the water and air cooling down, the takes are light, and yarn is much more sensitive than that big ol' plastic ball! The trout spey fishing has been pretty awesome, a light sink-tip paired with a smaller Sculpzilla in either olive or fire tail has been taking some nice fish, and if you want to up your catch rate, try trailing a small soft hackle off the back of your streamer.
