Roadside Euro Nymphing for 45 Minutes // Powerhour Fishing Report
May 10, 2019
I haven't gotten to trout fish in almost a week, so I decided to pull over this morning on my way to Red's and fish for about 45 minutes. LOTS of people drive along rivers and never get a chance to pull over and fish.
Using Euro Nymphing tactics is a great way to do a quick wading adventure and be productive becuase you don't have to cover a lot of water! You pick apart small areas where you know there to be trout. It allows you to fish a long time in a small area and still have a good chance at trout.
Location: Between Mile Marker 19 and Mile Marker 20, Yakima River Canyon
Anglers: Joe Rotter
Time: 8:45 am - 9:30 am
Catch Resuls: Hooked 3, broke one off on 5X, lost one, and landed a very nice one. The largest fish was about 17" and very colorful.
Estimated Hunger Level: 2 (the trout are feeding heavily on the big Caddis hatch in the afternoon!) Although I did hook several fish, they weren't very aggressive takes.
