YAKIMA

Fishing at this time of year can be good.  We have been promoting this time of year, ‘Kinda like a broken record’ since ’92,  when they opened the river up year round.   Overall the promotions really haven’t worked because the river is for the most part empty:)  Maybe that is a good thing.

Water temps   36-40 depending on time and one
Water clarity   6-8 feet

WINTER STEELHEAD

Some hatchery fish and a few wild fish showing up here and there.  We have not been on the water chasing steelhead much at all recently, but we will be soon!

For our Fish and Stay availability starting Feb 7 – link here

Our day trips are available now until April 15

 

UPPER COLUMBIA

Some reasonable streamer fishing recently ….  Big Streamers and a variety of sink rates based on depth and flow.

Water temps are 38-40 degress
Clarity is 8-10 feet

Take advantage of our early season SPECIAL.  Also we have a few prime time Drake dates and Fall dates left:)))

 

 

 

 

KLICKITAT REPORT – 12/1/18

The last day of the season on the Klickitat was ‘kinda magical’ especially for a year that dealt a tough hand.  Maybe the fish knew it was their last day to bit an artificial?  I don’t know why but they were happy:))

Best fly – The Blue Fox

Thanks to all who fished with us. Looking forward to next year.
Thanks to our great crews.
Thanks to Carl at the Canyon Market for all the help:)
 
After all the years on the water (rivers) The Klickitat remains one of my favorites.
