The Yakima has been a bit quirky and in the same breath, good.  There are a myriad of choices for the trout to eat currently, unlike a normal February.  Generally at this time of year the predominant active stonefly nymph would be the Skwala; and they are active.   In addition to the Skwala, we have noticed active Salmonfly nymphs…a little early for this.

We have been utilizing all tactics to catch trout….Nymphs, dry flies  and streamers

Predominant bugs hatching are….
#16-18 Blue Wings
#22 Midges
#10 Skwala (A few)

Honorable mentions;
Phil’s first
The Streamer game
59 degrees
Blue wing sippers
