Rob Miller with a Yakima Beast

Clarity is as follows

Upper Proper   4 Feet
Upper Flatlands  5 Feet
Upper Canyon 4-3 Feet
Farmlands 3-2 Feet
Lower Canyon  >2 feet

Current Trout Food…
March Browns
Blue Wings
Salmon Flies
Flying Ants
Caddis
PMD’s
Salmon Smolt
Sculpins

While every day is different, fishing and catching remains good overall. Some big fish being hooked and some even landed:)

Dry fly fishing has been average at best.  Fishing sub surface continues to be the ticket.  The dry fly opportunities are mostly to specific fish that are already rising to March Browns or Caddis in general.   The searching with a dry fly for us has be below average at best.

This picture illustrates the blizzard of Caddis that many rivers have been experiencing….including our home waters of the Yakima and Upper Columbia.
