KLICKITAT – Pressure has been less due to the lack of numbers over the dam.   The swing fishing has been worthy.  Depending on time and zone, we have used everything from dry lines to heavier tips.  October look alike patterns just subsurface and on the top have attracted a few.  Also, big like the AI (Artificial Intelligence) or Intruders  have produced as well.

In addition to the steelhead under tension we have had a rally, here and there, with the Chinook as well on the swing.

Good push of fish recently:))

UPPER COLUMBIA – Different then last fall….Overall fishing has been average.

YAKIMA – Fishing gooood throughout the system – From top to bottom.   Salmon Spawn up top.  Octobers, Crane flies, Baetis, Small Caddis  in the Farmlands and Lower Canyon

Dinner at The Steelhead Ranch
