The river is fish reasonable, considering the heat. Low light time frames are your best…..mornings and evenings. Water temps in the Upper River below the Cle Elum confluence are ranging from 59-63.  Water temps in the Lower Canyon are ranging from 62-68. ‘Little warm’ in the Lower Canyon.  Not a bad place to fish early in the day and get off mid afternoon.  Mr Weather shows reasonable weather coming our way with highs in the low to mid 80’s and cool night time temps.

Summer Stoneflies, Caddis and Hoppers are the main fare.  As usual at this time of year, the Upper Canyon (East Cle Elum to Thorp) dinner plate can be a mixed bag of delights…..Ants, leaf hoppers, beetles, bees etc…

More to follow on the Upper Canyon menu in the next report…..
