Nice to be back on the Klickitat. Great watershed. Bonneville numbers are not good….However, the fish trap on the Klickitat is showing slightly less than average numbers which is not a bad stat considering. The Klickitat, usually gets fish:)
Clarity was 15-20inches this past weekend. No fish on the swing and a handfull on the nymph.
Upper Proper 5-6 feet
Upper Flatlands 6-7 feet
Upper Canyon 6-7 feet
Farmlands 6-4 feet
Lower Canyon 4 feet
Bugs de jour…
Summer Stones, Caddis, Yellow Mays, Terrestrials
Bugs of the week…
YB soft hackle, Pats Stones, Dave’s Hopper.
Upper Proper is low and a little warm. From the Cle elum river confluence down the river is at typical big summer flows. Some good Caddis activity here and there. However, finding nice fish on the Caddis is difficult amid the precocial salmon. Some reasonable fishing otherwise despite the heat.
We will be back on the water for our fall season shortly….
