YAKIMA

Good to great fishing lately….. End of Story.
Bugs of the day  — Blue Wing Olives, Blue Wing Olives & Blue Wing Olives:)
There are a few October Caddis left as well as Craneflies.  In addition the Whitefish spawn is happening.  Refer to the last report re: tactics for the spawn.

KLICKITAT

Well, sporadic would be the story.  We have touched fish with the nymph (Bead), the fly swung just under the surface (Steelhead Caddis) and swung deep (Blue Fox Fly) utilizing multi density lines.  However, no real pattern can be determined and consistency is certainly not part of the pattern.

Multiple techniques used to target the trout.  Not one thing being the ticket.  Weather has been a bit abrupt.  Bugs include Baetis and October Caddis.

Sporadic but reasonable fishing……Both the Swung fly and nymph have produced.
