Yakima River Fishing Report // Smoke Free!
September 19, 2020
Conditions are excellent right now, especially for anglers hoping to have some DIY success here in the Yakima River Canyon. Flows are now quite low at 1,300 cfs versus July - August when the river runs at just over 4,000 cfs! Right now it's fabulous wading with lots of easy water to wade and use your own boat.
A few strategies to consider right now would be renting a personal watercraft (WaterMaster) from us or a framed fishing raft or even a drift boat. Check out this link for more info:
