Weather and Fishing Update:
Even though I’m not on the banks of the Yakima yet I’m still getting info on weather and conditions and it’s that time of the year where I start putting up reports and predictions.
The past week has had some warmer weather with air temps touching 50 degrees. The water temps bumped up a degree or two in the lower river which made for some decent early season fishing from reports I have gathered through talking with fellow anglers and guides. Upper river is still cold but there has been midges and even a few BWOs here and there.
We have a cooler front coming in this week with forecasts calling for overnight lows in the mid to low 20’s and daytime temps in the high 30’s in the upper and mid 40’s in the LC.
I’m about 3 weeks away from packing up and heading back to the Yakima to get ready for the season. Midges, BWO’s and streamers along with nymphing stones and of course worms will produce fish even in the cold. Look for that slower walking speed water for your trout.
Here in South Idaho it’s warming up with temps in the high 40’s this coming week, making me come out of hibernation a little early to venture out to Silver Creek and possibly up to the Big Wood River to see if I can get me some brown trout to eat before I head back to Washington until April.
Trips are trickling in and with the current forecasts and predictions it looks like the season is gonna get started a little early this year. Give me a call, email, or message me on social media, to reserve a day of fishing for the 2019 season!
Hope to see ya out there anglers…
