We had a successful 2016 and have plans in place to continue our stewardship and conservation work in the Teanaway. We will launch our "Headwaters...

    I will be doing a series of 5 small oil paintings for our new rental. I'll be putting a fly on each canvas and am asking for your help. What is your favorite fly or flies for fishing the Yakima?

    If you are putting on a New Zealand strike indicator, what leader formula should I use. I know that the standard 4-5x tapered leader has too big of a butt section for to put on a NZ wool with the tool. I didn't know if 20lb is too thick or if I should go with 15lb, or if that isn't stiff enough...

    Hey all this is my first post, hopefully this is the right subform. I'm and avid fly angler and call the Yakima river my home base for fishing. I have probably fished right beside some of this board's members. Over the past few months I have been hitting it hard on the river every weekend trying...

    We see a lot of "rock dams" in the headwaters this time of year, and remove as many as we find, but keeping up with humans can be difficult. The Beavers do a much better job and there's plenty of science that points to the benefits for healthy populations of most wildlife, importantly our Wild...

    A couple of factual errors, but indeed Ringer Road WDFW access is busy - and an important link in the river safety chain for rescues. Relocating the access area would have benefits for anglers and recreational floaters too - I suggest while they're at it to include public safety and common...

    Looking to rent a 13' to 14' Raft with a 3-person fishing frame from the evening of the 9th to the 11th or 12th of June. We are wanting to float a section of the Yakima west of Cle Elum to the takeout above the Culvert Damn and none of the fly shops in the area rent rafts for the section we...

    Any forum members here or do you know of students at CWU that are enrolled in science, conservation, or environmental studies that would be interested in starting a sub-chapter for the Yakima River Headwaters Trout Unlimited Chapter? I am developing a campus-based group to engage students in...

    i have the day off today. Flows look bit marginal when I check the web. Anyone have eyeballs on the Upper Yak (think Cle Elum and up) this morning? How does it look?

    Reading a recent edition of Trout, I see that Beavers are being re-introduced into the upper Yakima watershed. I thought they already existed there? "The Complicated Relationship Between Beavers & Trout" (Phillip Monahan) is a good read. Once estimated at between 60 to 400 million before...
