Hey all, I always hear the Yakima refered to as a "blue ribbon" trout stream. Is there an official definition of "blue ribbon"? I have heard the Yakima holds somewhere around 725 trout per mile. I believe Montana's Madison (another river called "blue-ribbon") has upwards of 3,000 trout per mile. Also, the Yakima seems to contain mostly small trout. While I have had a couple of happy days on the Yak where I caught fish measuring in the high teens, it seems the largest population segment falls in the 9-12" range. Of course, that's just a guess. Any of you go out and regularly catch fish bigger than 12-14" in the river? If so, it would give me a lot of hope! Cheers!
