    Wife is heading out of town!!! so I am thinking of heading over to Yakima River for some flyfishing. Can anyone point me to any good wading spots? Or possibly some little float I can take my SouthFork on? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks:DUNNO :THUMBSUP

    There are some good access spots on the upper river along hwy 10. Those are usually a better choice during high water. If the water is low enough there are some places in the canyon between umptanum and mm19 that I've had good success wading.

    I might be old---but I'm good.

    There are good spots for wading around Easton. Just look to your maps if you have one. I found a few by just driving around that area. Jim S. P/S Go to worleybuggerflyco.com They have a map of the Yakima River showing all of the access points. Jim :THUMBSUP
