    Quick question for anyone who knows: I was driving from Moscow ID to Seattle last weekend and I noticed that the Yakima river from Cle Elum up to Easton looked pretty good. Anyone fished that? Any good? Also, What about the Cle Elum river? If they ARE any good, is there any (public) access?

    Thanks.

    Hey Check the reports here to find the info you need.The evening hatch has a report daily as does the fly shop in Eburg.There is an excellent map avail.at WorleyBugger for 19.95 that covers the whole river.Check the shop buy the map and go explore.Worllet Bugger opens early 8am and was a good start my first time over.Don't go to Yakima for info too early as the shop there doesn't open til 10 or so! Good luck T

    I like to fish the upper river. There is somewhat good access there around Easton. Use the same flies as you would down lower. As for the map I think that they have a free one that shows the access points. Just go to worleybugger.com Jim

    [font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON Apr-04-01 AT 11:09 PM (PST)[/font][p]Thanks Jim. It take a good deal to clean it up after scanning it but the thanks must go to Mr. Bynum for allowing me to provide it you guys. When I was in the exploration stages on the Yak I found it very helpful as a place to store my notes on access / put in points and hatch info. fyi: I picked it up from Creekside but most shops carry it.

    Regards,

    Chris
