GREAT FISHING….END OF STORY
Great fishing the past few days. Both the nymph and streamer have been productive.
The entire river has been worthy. It appears the Skwala nymphs are incredibly active as they should be. We are only a month or so away from the first adult of the 2018 season.

The Yakima river is in great shape! Fishing and catching has been good over the last few days…. get your dates down on the calendar.
This is why we love this time of year so much!

YAKIMA RIVER Honestly, no report lately. We have not been on the river for a few days now… To learn more about winter fishing on the Yakima click here

Happy New Year! Rivers are coming back into shape after this most recent Atmospheric River….That term just makes me laugh.
Reasonable numbers of fish around… The typical early run of hatchery fish, and some wild ones showing up here and there.
A few tips….
Fish the fly at the eye level of the fish or just above.
Although plenty of fish are caught early in the day, statistically for us the afternoon is better.
Of course, fish where the fish are. If the fish are moving, the heads and tails are a given. If the fish are sitting down, fish the gut of the run.
Utilize the right sink tip and or line to put the fly in the zone.
more tips coming soon:)

YAKIMA RIVER is in great shape and is fishing good….Tis the season. Over the years, we have always promoted the winter :)) The river is generally low and clear, the fish are funneled into the feed me zones, the food sources are predictable and the landscape is pared to the bone.
Beautiful fish from yesterday on a swung fly….
WINTER STEELHEAD season is underway….. As per usual the hatchery fish are showing up on schedule. Tactics utilized lately include both swing and nymph techniques. Steelhead love little round things! So when we are nymphing we often use yarn in the shape of an egg. When swinging to predominantly hatchery fish it always seems they ‘LIKE’ pink ….. So we tend to use that color often.

One of our favorite patterns…. The AI -> Different color combos can be used…
Some bright hatchery fish around….

Little cold lately. Lots of ice in the guides. Fishing the warmth of the day is your best bet. Watch for the fishing to be good to great the next time the water temps rise… even just 1/2 of a degree! Recently the fishing has been good for a few nice ones….. Certainly not a numbers game recently.
