Fish the Right Spots // Roadside Nymphing Powerhour Report
May 24, 2019
I stepped in the water for about 30 minutes on the way down to the shop this morning and wanted to do a short article and video on helping anglers read water better. We see it all the time, anglers fishing in the wrong spots!
Choosing the right place to step into the river increases your odds exponentially! Watch this short video on how to understand transitions better and improve your catch on your next brief walkabout.
Location: Between Mile Marker 19 and Mile Marker 18, Yakima River Canyon
Anglers: Joe Rotter
Time: 9 am - 9:30 am
Catch Resuls: Landed one trout, 12" - had two other good takes. A trout every half an hour?... not terrible.
Estimated Hunger Level: 1 out of 10 - It was really cold, windy, and the Caddis hatch in the evening is super good. They weren't biting very well this morning.
