At Fall levels and fishing consistent.
The big bug recently has been ok to good; predominantly Craneflies and October Caddis. Watch for that to change and striking out 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 water consistency on. We just finally came into shape from to much heat and now we are dealing with rains…..
Up and down this Fall season. Average to tough fishing overall. Water levels have been way higher than normal with very little bug activity.
We met with some good success this fall on the Kvichak. Not many salmon in the river this year which most likely equates to fewer rainbows coming down from the lake. Regardless, good fishing!
Entire trip was two hand swingtime:))
