Spent winter solstice stalking wild 'bows on the upper Yakima. Water temp was 39 degrees, flows were steady at around 460 cfs, and there was roughly 7 feet of vis. After about an hour of observation, sighted two BIG noses taking single midge adults. (Didn't see any clusters.) Both trout were holding in the edgewater of a tailout. First trout took a #20 Griffith's Gnat (w/sparse grizzly hackle) on 6x, but uncorked after three violent head shakes. I misread the riseform on the second trout and put it down with an off-target cast.

How high on the upper Yakima,around Easton or lower down. I've always had good luck up around Easton. Had my biggest fish on a dry up in that area. But that was when the warm sun was beaming down.

The thrill is not in the kill---But to let them go.
