Yakima River Fishing Report – June 14, 2023

Lately temperatures have been on the spicy side with the thermometer hovering somewhere around the low nineties. Green drake fishing, at least when we’ve had a spat of cloud cover, has been good to spectacular. Our afternoons have been a little less productive in regard to dry fly fishing with mornings and evenings been the most fruitful time slots.

This week we are going to see a cool down with mostly cloudy skies throughout the week, so fishing a variety of golden stones, green drakes, and yellow sallies should yield a trout or two. As of now, despite a small rain-bump, the river is low, clear, and in perfect shape for wading. If you are floating, be careful of exposed rocks on the upper-river; it’s bony out there!
