YAKIMA AND WINTER STEELHEAD REPORT – 2/19/18

Posted on Leave a comment on YAKIMA AND WINTER STEELHEAD REPORT – 2/19/18

I was told we don’t update enough… Well it appears that is the case as the last report was quite awhile ago.

WINTER STEELHEAD

Winter Steelhead fishing has been all over the board, as per usual;  50 miles per hour gusts, sun, rain, snow!   You know what they say, an inch of rain a day helps keep the swing away.

All tactics have caught fish.  Yesterday’s fish came on a pale pink Squidro tied by Larry who came out from Michigan to catch some sea going Steelies.

 

YAKIMA RIVER

Some good to great fishing recently and also some tough fishing based on weather.  No adult Skwalas yet for us …..That doesn’t mean there haven’t been any.

Suggestions

Turd and the worm – # 10-12
Streamers – Sparkle Minnows and Sculpzilla  #4-6
Blue Wing and Midge nymphs  #16-20
Caddis larvae  #14-16

Yakima hook up

River is big but is dropping and clearing nicely.  Fishing is good. Perfect conditions for the ‘ Turd and a worm’ combo… AKA Stonefly and San Juan Worm.
