    Hi all,
    I was planning on heading to the Yakima tomorrow, but hear the water is really muddy. Is this true. I've also heard the upper sections are still o.k.
    Anyone got ideas for an alternative destination, not too far from Seattle?

    I was up in the lower canyon yesterday and there was only about 2 1/2 - 3 feet of visibility. There was a nice hatch coming off but the fish sure weren't looking up. If you don't mind nymphing, then you'll catch fish. The water level was only up a little but with the warmer days and the wind it could rise quickly.
