weekly fishing report for 09/28/2013

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe fishing is still good, but it is starting to slow down on the river. This is a great opportunity to get out there, as the fishing pressure is less and less. There are still some good fish that are willing to feed. The dry fly fishing is definitely slowing down and the nymphing is becoming more of the focus in our day. We always fish the streamer at this time of the year and it usually is very productive. The Cle Elum river is low as well as the Yakima river (easy walk and wade conditions). This is primetime to get out there and do some walk and wade fishing. I did a couple of hours with a client on the Cle Elum and the fishing was great. Remember the fish eat even when its soggy and rainy out. If you just fish the good weather windows you are missing out on some great fishing opportunities’. We landed several nice fish and missed many others. We were one of the only anglers on the river and the fishing was great. The fish are starting to feed on smaller patterns but are still looking for a big bug here and there, so if you cant hook  a fish on the big bug scale it down and it will hopefully pay off. We are still running trips on the Yakima 7 days a week and are in the shop on Sat and Sun from 9-3. Stop in and see us we love to talk fishing. We are starting fly tying lessons soon if you are interested stop by the shop and sign up.
