    I have the opportunity to go fishing this weekend in Eastern WA, but the Yak is looking pretty high. I had good luck earlier in the year at Nunully and Lenice, but I was wondering if anyone has fished them lately? Are they too hot now to be productive? Are the fish doggy?

    Thanks :DUNNO

    The Yakima is not too high but the wind is more of a problem! I've waded when the flows were at 4200 cfs. There are fewer spots and you need to be careful but you can catch fish. I was there yesterday and the flows were in the 3500 range. Still very fishable but the wind came up in the later afternoon (7:00 p.m.) and it makes casting a challenge!

    Haven't been to Lenice / Nunnally since it's gotten so hot (about 2 weeks of mid 90 - 100 degrees temperatures). It's bad for the fish but if you must fish do it real early (off the water by 9:00 a.m.) or real late (like after 8:00 p.m.). Use a heavier leader so you came land the fish quickly so as to not tire them (kill them).

    The Yakima would be a better option!

    Good Luck!
