Teanaway River - July 4th, 2010
  • Recorded:
  • Mostly sunny
  • 73 ° F 
  • Fishing: Good
Looking for respite from the flows and crowds on the main stem of the Yakima, we fished an upper fork of the Teanaway on the 4th for an or so on the way to a family bbq at BurbCadia.

11 fish to hand...all under 11". Small water, attractor dries and some careful casting in to pools and deep riffles pay off with greedy little rainbows. If you're not looking for big 'uns and have fun casting to eager fish, this river at this time of year offers a distraction and change of pace - and little competition.

Yakima River - June 30th, 2010
  • Recorded:
  • Sunny
  • 74 ° F 
  • Fishing: Great
Overall really great fishing today. We fished Ringer to Umtanum today from 9:30am to 3:30pm. The river has come down a bit to 3200 cfs since the big push of water (4200 cfs @ Umtanum), but keep your eyes out for daily bursts and how they affect clarity. We had great visibility above Wilson Creek, but in common form Wilson was puking in some dark water which didn't clear up to afford good fishing again for a mile or so downstream. Early with streamers, mid-morning nymphing and afternoon non-stop gut-busting dry fly fishing from Big Horn through the Rock Garden. 23 fish to the boat. Most under 11" with one at 15" (sculpzilla) and one at 16" (Cahill). Good day for a 3 wt. Flies: Black Sculpzilla (size 8), BH Prince Nymph (size 16), Pats Stonefly, Light Cahill (size 16), Stimmie (various)
