Yakima River Fishing Report

It is go time folks! The river is in great shape here and early September, and today we have seen the onset of some cooler fall weather. The fishing has been great river-wide, and there are fish to be had on dries, nymphs, streamers and soft-hackles, as well as both single-hand and two-handed techniques. October Caddis, Stoneflies and Craneflies have been the predominant hatches, although we are just starting to see some BWOs pop with this cooler, wetter weather. Regardless of where you fish in the system, focus on shorter floats (if you are in a boat) or smaller sections of water (if you are wading), and work the water over thoroughly. With low flows, the fish are podded up and where there's one, there are usually a lot more!
