This river is like clockwork this year
September Crane flies, October Caddis, Summer Stones and Hoppers make the month a great opportunity for big dry flies. The big bug recently has been gooood. Watch for that to start to change soon.
The later Fall can be listed as the Far and Fine on the Yakima Don’t get me wrong, a streamer and the like will continue to catch fish of course, but the big dry flies will lighten and become non existent soon.

Plenty of fish in the river:)) Just been a tough one to get any consistency on. We just finally came into shape from to much heat and now we are currently out because of the rains:((
Up and down with consistency but some good fishing overall. October Caddis, Fall Baetis,
40K CFS of Swinging trout water that will blow your mind. Average fish being 20-24 inch rockets. Literally the hardest fighting fish pound for pound I have experienced. The BIG ones hooked by the guests have been lost. Understandably because they literally headed for the Salt.
