The Cle Elum from below the damm to Bbullfrog Rd. is finally down to 250 CFS and there’s some of the best wading water we have in the upper river systems we encourage fly fisherman to get out there and hike that Cle Elum River. Flies to use (Golden stones October Cadis And crane fly patterns).
Well Fall fishing is upon us and dang has it been good. Most fly fishermen agree that this is their favorite time of year and it’s easy to see why. Our flows have dropped from about 4000 cfs to about 800 cfs, Craneflies and October Caddis are hatching, big fish are hitting the nets, and of course the cooler temperatures and leaves changing colors all add to the experience of Fall fishing.
Skating Craneflies is an exciting way to fish as the fish will do cartwheels over the fly trying to catch it before it gets away. October Caddis have made an early appearance as well. We have been seeing them in the upper river for a couple weeks now. As far as nymphs go, we have been using a BWO like a psycho mays or a olive hares ear. Streamers have been good as well with a sculpzilla or sparkle minnow being our best flies.
We have been seeing salmon coming up the river which creates a lot of biomass and is really healthy for the river. Look out for a area of cleaned ooff rocks when you are wading as that area is most likely a salmon redd.
Tight lines everyone!
