Yakima River

Tip of the week 

Indicator fishing early in the day with a stonefly nymph trailed by a small (#16-18) beadhead dropper. Dry-fly fishing has been consistent in the afternoon with BWO and Mahoganies, especially on cloudy days.

Seven-day forecast 

The extended weather and fishing forecast looks great. The next 3 weeks on the Yakima will be some of the best and most consistent fishing of the entire year. If you have been thinking about heading out to the Yakima river now is the time. Wade anglers well as anglers in boats are doing well and the fishing will remain strong into early November.
