Yakima River Fishing Report

The summer fishing season continues with good dry-fly fishing early and late in the day. Midday fishing is not incredibly productive this time of year, and the heat wave we will be experiencing later this week (100-109 degrees!) will not help matters much. Our advice, stick to short half day flaots and focus on dry-fly fishing. The fish are eating summer stoneflies and caddis when the sun is off the water, so a chubby or PMX trailed by an elk-hair or cdc emerger is a good combo to cover both bases. The fish have been seeing plenty of flies lately so near perfect presentations and down-sizing flies will pay off big time.
