Yakima River Fishing Report – August 28th, 2022

The water has been slowly dropping and we should start seeing more wade fishing spots open up in the upcoming weeks. Fish are still looking up for big dry flies and droppers, and we’re even starting to see a few crane flies starting to bounce around on the upper river. Streamers have also been fishing good with trout spey being one of the most effective ways to fish from the bank in the tight spaces.

We’ve been finding our fish by following the seams along the bank, inside corners and structure. Faster water has been producing the bigger fish since it supplies them with more food an oxygen, and with the water slowly dropping you’ll find more fish sticking to wood and big rocks.

A reminder that the Green Bridge access will be closed until Nov 1, Bullfrog boat ramp is still closed not sure when they will open it up. Bristol is closed.
