Yakima River Fishing Report

It looks like we are in for some wind this weekend, but the sun will be out and if you can find a place to tuck out of the wind, the fishingr will be good! We saw some great dry-fly fishing this past week, with October Caddis playing a big role in the trout's diet right now. If you have a fish rise to the OC but refuse it at the last second, try a small parachute pattern like a purple haze or split-wing BWO as a come back fly as there are plenty of small mayflies around too. Swinging October Caddis pupa has been picking up some fish, as well as indicator nymphing or dry-dropper fishing with a tungsten beadhead. Streamer fishing? We haven't been doing a ton of it lately, but it should be pretty good with either sculpin style patterns or smolt imitations. There are a ton of different ways to catch fish right now on the Yak and lots of access both on foot and by boat. See you out here!
