Been awhile since the last report…The Yakima is like any other Western stream in the blazing heat…. A little tough. Ironically the smoke from the fires add a bit of ‘cover’ and block the amount of direct light which is an artificial cloud cover. Hat’s off to all the firefighters out there and hope they get the blazes under control. Regardless, the mornings and evenings remain the time to be on the water. Sometimes, the earlier or later, the better.

Current clarity is poor. However, the overall clarity has been reasonable considering the heat. Hook ups have been reasonable; landing the fish haS been a challenge:)
