Yakima River Fishing Reports & Blog:

Fishing Report   1-16-18   The Yakima has been rising slowly since the 13th due to Rain and melting snow. The river is a bit off color and still trending up. NOAA predicts a slight drop beginning on the 17th, followed by another rise.

Fishing Report   1-30-18   The Yakima has been in great shape for most of the winter, very little snow and no ice flows. Flows are bumping up today due to warm weather and some rain, but the river should drop back down fairly quickly. Water temps have hovered around 42 degrees in the Canyon for a few weeks. Unusually warm for January. OK to good fishing.

Nice winter bow Rainbow Release

Fishing Report   2-4-18   Warm weather and melting snow, the Yakima is blown out.
