Current screenshot of the Yakima flows….northwest river predictions show the river heading to 7K, reportedly to flush the salmon smolts. All three of reservoirs are at around 85% full. Although we have minimal low lying snow, once the reservoirs are full they have to release. The good thing is the water is clean coming from the reservoirs.
The fishing was ‘off the chart’ on the 4th….But since they have elevated the flows the bugs have been intermittent. Water temps have dropped due to the cold water releases.
Upper Proper 4 feet
Upper Flatlands 5-6 feet
Upper Canyon 4-5 feet
Farmlands 4-2.5 feet
Lower Canyon 2.5 feet
We should have lots of cold clean water for our summer this year:) In between now and stabilization (somewhere around June 15) We will have some great fishing and some tough fishing:)
