I'm looking for a little info. I'll be traveling on business the second week of April on both sides of the state. Can anyone tell me what rivers / area's I should be targeting in April? Salmon, Steelhead, Trout ?
Thanks Guys. I have a tradeshow in Tocoma and customers to visit in Eastern WA. I'll be wading and have a 5 wt single hand and a 7 wt switch. I was hoping to fish rivers. Sounds like the Yakima will be my focus. Any thoughts on areas, lines and bugs to fish.
Not sure where in E. Washington you'll be, but you might also check out Crab Creek (with the easily accessible sections basically North of Ritzville, WA). It's a great creek with a lot of bank access. There are sections that have regulated access where there are bigger fish, but the publicly accessible sections have a lot of fish in the 6 to 12 in. range with some up to 16-18 in. You might also contact Swede's fly shop in Spokane and talk to the owner about other options. http://www.swedesflyshop.com/
