Lost in the heat of it all…

Dirty water swing, no question on this fish bite! Summer is trying to let go of its hold on the PNW, the weather reports are for cooler temps and not quite getting those predictions yet. Good pushes of steelhead and fall Chinook are moving into the Columbia systems. On any given day the water temps are dropping into the favorable range and the fish that are present go onto a bite. This full moon will certainly be shuffling the deck of Salmonids every night. I have been shuffling myself between trout fishing on the Yakima River which is fishing great right now and steelhead fishing which is what I am all giddy about. On the Klickitat its all about dirty water tactics with nearly to high of water temps, basically sink tips and big bright or dark stuff at the business end of the string. Soon the dry line will be the best option on the Spey and them damn plastic balls o fire will have to wait there turn.  Oh you can bring up a few steelhead in the right spots on the dry line right now but I love the sink tip, it just gets it done in any water you find them. As  soon as we get some cooler air temps and the rivers become more consistent the dry line will produce better as the fish will be in chase mode longer during each day.
