The clean up was very well attended and was a great success! I chose not to work out of a boat so therefor I don't have a fishing report but I'm sure others (trouthole I believe was there?) will pitch in. Instead I worked the put in / take outs (the Slab), some of the banks and along the road. At the Slab, in less then a full hour, three of us picked up 6 bags of trash (and one car battery) and hardly made a dent. Some thing got to be done about the cmapers there! Without toilet facilities, the TP and crap (and I mean CRAP literally) was out of control!!!

On a better note, at the meeting following the clean up there's an effort to form a Federation of Fly Fishermens club. The main idea that came out of the meeting is to have a club that is more active with conservation/preservation projects on the Yakima (not so much in the way of improving fly casting skills). If you fish the Yak, have an interest in helping preserve and improve this fishery, there will be a meeting on Tuesday, November 12th at 6:00 p.m. at the Ellensburg Inn. You can get more info on Steve Worley's web site
worleybuggerflyco.com. Doesn't matter whether you're a west side or east side fly fishermen/fisherwomen(or would like to become a fly fishermen) everyone and anyone is welcome to attend and join the club.

Thanks!

I ate at the same table with Bill and Kent and they are great guys. A lot of the westside guys had to leave because of the long drive back but the idea behind the FFF club is to have projects that conserve/preserve the Yakima (not quite so much emphasis on improving our casting skills, though we all could use that). Hope the westsiders that fish the Yakima regularly will join the new club, even if they can't make it over for the monthly meetings.
