    Danielocean, the bugs are probably gonna be different from the Yakima to the Cedar. Generally I think the hatches are different from river to river and especially so with the Cedar and the Yakattack being on different sides of the state.
    I like to fish streamers on the Cedar. I've also used a yellow sally late in summer.
    I'm probably one of the worst guys trying to identify bugs and match the hatch.

    I fished the Cedar last night.. Had plenty of fish on a size 18 baconfly, but had to upsize to a size 14 moosesack to catch anything over 14 inches.

    I'll be back on the water tomorrow. Water is nice now, nearly perfect.

    Interesting reports. I plan on being there Thurs.the 11th with a bud. I have always had luck there fishing the oddest way. No deaddrift but a big stone nymph with rubber legs and holding it in the current moving it back and forth under structure. Nails them every time. Completely unnatural. Doesn't seem to work anywhere else.

    Hey Reel,
    Where you going to fish? I can meet you there, and we'll share a scotch, or some four twenty.

    I'll be there on the 11th.

    Hmmm, I wish I knew the mile post. I usually fish off the bike path in a few spots in the lower area. I am really showing a buddy the river who wants to pontoon it.

    He has an HD camera and we have been documenting bugs, flies, fish and with the underwater housing the release as well. Hopefully for a future video.

    PM me. I'll bring my scotch as well:thumb:

    Cov,
    I tried to take a picture of the Moosesack last night, but when I goot too close, the sucker kicked and nearly knocked the camera out of my hands.

    No, that was funny!

    Yes you can, the Cedar has mayfly hatches, and caddis. Stick with the basics, nymphs, Adams,Elk hair caddis etc.

    Fished the Ceed again today. Reelucky you are totally on the right page with the "drag and drift"...crazy but effective. iagree I've done the best for the bigger fish with large Crane Fly imitations skittered through bigger water and under overhanging brush. Fish on.

    I don't know if there have been any fishing-related break ins yet this year, but I can pretty much guarantee that there will be.

    There is lots of access. Study some maps, draw some circles on it and go explore them. There are roads and trails all along the river.
