Yakima River Fishing Report

The river continues to drop, and although the fish have been moving around, we have seen the bite stay pretty consistent throughout the river.

The dry-fly fishing early and late has started to taper off, although we are still seeing some fish eating the big dry early and late...you just have to work a lot harder for them. Midday, hoppers and ants have some fish looking up, especially on those grassy banks that still hold water. If you aren't grtting much love on the dry fly, dropping a YB Hare's Ear or smaller Pat's Stone off the back 2-3' will put fish in the net.

We should see the river continue to drop into early September when things will eventually level off. We will really start to see some good wade fishing opportunity open up here in the next 7-10 days, in addition to the front end of our October Caddis and Cranefly hatches. Lots to look forward to in the coming weeks!
