Cooler weather has been a relief and improved the fishing on most western streams.  This past heat wave had slowed things down a bit.

Bugs for the Yakima include –  Golden Stones, PMD’s, Caddis, Drakes
Bugs for the Upper Columbia include – Caddis, PMD’s, Baetis, Amyletus

Flows on both the Yakima and Upper Columbia are lower than normal and have been so, for the past month.

Water temps on the Yakima are ranging between 50 and 58 degrees depending where you are in the system and at what time – Looking good.
Upper Columbia water temps are 56 degrees
