December Rainbows on the Yakima River
Its a chilly December day and Ladin and Steve are joined by their friend Larry Hardie for a fishing session on the Yakima River, a tributary of the Columbia River in Washington State. Larry makes an excellent start with a stunning 20 inch Rainbow. With recent rains, the river is higher than usual so Larry suggests a San Juan worm under an indicator is the best tactic and both Steve and Ladin take advantage of the advice. Ladin is plagued by Whitefish as usual before landing a nice Rainbow a small weighted red midge nymph. The fish continue to come into the evening to their nymph and streamer patterns ending a great winter session on the Yakima River.
