Cedar River - July 25th, 2010
  • Recorded:
  • Sunny
  • 74 ° F 
  • Fishing: Great
4 fish landed today between 8” and 21”.  Down low the river is still fishing well very early in the morning.  We nymphed all morning and raised/hooked lots of fish with 4 to hand.  Make sure to have a strong and long 6 weight to get your double nymph rigs out there without tangling as well as fighting the big fish.  Try to be on the river by 5:00AM and expect to be all by yourself.  Fish the darker water with a large fly like a speculator on top with a small, colored dropper underneath.  **IMPORTANT**  Bring only what you need to fish and leave nothing in your car unless you’re parking at the library.  Two of our cars were broken into; not much was taken but meth heads will do anything for something that looks even of minimal value and pawnable.  You might even want to have something in your car that says “nothing of value in here”.  Beside the car issues, the fishing was great.

Fishing the lower river for Lake Washington Rainbows and Cutts has been good very early in the mornings.  The entire river holds fish, some of them are very big, the largest fish in the river are migratory fish from the lake.  For anglers looking to get a shot at the largest fish in this river (fish from 18”-27”) the lower 6 miles holds the majority of these.  Like most big trout, going deep in the lower light of the morning is vastly more successful than other techniques.
