YAKIMA RIVER REPORT
For many years they have been trying to figure out more storage for water in our basin. We really haven’t started melting in the higher elevations and our basins are almost full. They will need to release a lot of water soon.
We should have cold clean water this year. Currently the Bug De Jour really is the March Brown. There are other insects for sure, a few Skwala and Blue Wings, but the key insect is the March Brown.
Coming soon to the Yakima …. Caddis and Salmon Fly’s
Reasonable fishing recently on the Upper Columbia. Below is a great Father / Daughter photo with a nice trout.
Predominant techniques include nymphing and swinging…No dry fly fishing yet. Probably won’t see that for awhile. There are some Midges and Blue Wings.
