Seattle Fly Fishing Report | July 6, 2020 | Fireworks Are Done!

Alright, the 4th of July weekend is nearing closure and we are finally beginning to see water levels drop on many of our small streams in the area meaning it is time to break out the 5x and the dry fly box...it's about time!

The other fishery we should be paying more attention to is our multitude of bass fisheries we have all over the area. Most of our local Seattle area urban lakes are home to the "Ditch Pickle" and while many consider them a lesser species to chase, it could very well be because they haven't run across a 14 inch small mouth before. These fish hit hard and fight harder and are absolutely worth your attention.

The lower Yakima, Lake Alice, Greenlake, Lake Tapps and the illustrious and giant Lake Washington have fantastic bass fishing on them. Surface flies like frogs, poppers, mice and even the Sound Searcher are always a first picks for us but fishing deeper with crawdad's and streamers can find some of the larger specimens hanging out near the bottom.

Hope everyone had a safe and wonderful Holiday weekend with family and friends. We look forward to seeing everyone soon.
