    Heading to Ellensburg tomorrow. Any updates on what bugs are working on the river? Didn't see anything flying last week so tried purple chubbies, cranes, caddis and various droppers without much luck. Hoping they'll love my purple haze and stimmies.

    I lost a stream Moby rod with Lamson guru 2 v2 reel driving down highway 10 between green bridge and Bristol. Fell out of the rod holders in the boat! If any body finds this rod please let me know! The reward will be a free float trip down the river!
