Hit the yak with my wife and dogs for a few hours on Sunday. I usually fish the canyon, but I have decided to make an attempt to learn the upper river a bit better since it's so close to home. Did some bushwacking above Cle Elum and managed to find a few nice holes. Saw some midges coming off and one lonely BWO in an eddy, but no surface activity from the trouts. Water temp was about 42-43. Have to say that it's a completely different experience fishing the upper Yak v. the canyon. The fact that I followed a fresh elk trail to the river, then didn't see another fisherman all day made the outing successful. Add to that the fact that I caught the largest rainbow I have caught on the Yak, and you could say it was a damn good day. It was the only fish of the day, but was a legitimate 18" beauty. And a thick 18 inches. Beautiful colors, beautiful fish. I am now determined to learn this section of the river a bit better; when I get to the point that I spend more time fishing than bushwacking and looking for fishy spots the catch rate should increase.
Tight lines, and have a happy turkey day!

Greg,

I am interested in joining the new club, the only issue would be my meeting attendance due to the distance to Ellensburg. I'll be gone for turkey day but can get the application back to you when I return. Hopefully I'll have a chance to chase some klamath/trinity fishes around on thanksgiving. Have a happy holiday

Marcus
