YAKIMA RIVER is in great shape and is fishing good….Tis the season. Over the years, we have always promoted the winter :)) The river is generally low and clear, the fish are funneled into the feed me zones, the food sources are predictable and the landscape is pared to the bone.
Beautiful fish from yesterday on a swung fly….
WINTER STEELHEAD season is underway….. As per usual the hatchery fish are showing up on schedule. Tactics utilized lately include both swing and nymph techniques. Steelhead love little round things! So when we are nymphing we often use yarn in the shape of an egg. When swinging to predominantly hatchery fish it always seems they ‘LIKE’ pink ….. So we tend to use that color often.
