    Here are some pics from a trip last week to the Okanogan region. In general, the fishing was good, the weather cold and often windy. Fish were caught with snowcones, damsel patterns & black buggers. Should have brought smaller flies for a mayfly hatch we couldn't match.

    She took this last one by herself of her own fish when I was downstream. Upper Yakima.

    Nice pictures. Love that area this time of year. I think Ross used to have some pink reels for sale. Something to do with breast cancer research or something. If they are still around, might be cool to get one for that rod.
