Things are a bit slow for my shop right now so Im sitting at home for a little bit. I figured make the best of it and GO Fishing! I have not fly fished in the winter yet. I was thinking of heading to the upper Yak and trying it out. Any advice on what flies throw out there? Thanks Jason P.s I would try the canyon but its a little hard on the gas budget.

The Yak is probably frozen, especially up there. Everytime I've fished it in the winter the fishing was slow, but there are big fish to be found, especially if you like fishing big streamers slowly . I'd wait for a significant warming trend to get those fish moving and more eager to eat. The fishing always seems better in the late spring, summer and fall up there instead of the winter. The fish just don't seem to be around much up there in the dead of winter. The canyon has always treated me better during the cold season.

The Yakima in town here has ice flowing, not sure about the canyon. It's darn cold and getting colder with wind. Good luck!
