It's been well over a decade since this thread was active so I thought I'd try to wake it up. Hopefully everybody from before is still alive and catching fish. My question is: Has anybody tried going way up into the upper stretches of the river? Looks like it could be great up there for trout but I can't find anything on the web about it. I know it flows through the Yakima Res so I'm not sure how easy it is to drive along the river and fish. Also, I don't know how safe it is but hopefully that's not an issue.
