Seattle Fly Fishing Report | June 17, 2022 | Have We Mentioned Puget Sound?

Seattle Fly Fishing Report | June 17, 2022 | Have We Mentioned Puget Sound?
Salmon Fly on the Snoqualmie River near Seattle, WA.

As we sit here on a unseasonably cool day in mid June watching the rain yet again fall we are yet again hoping to entice those who have yet to try Puget Sound to do so.  We still have high water on nearly all of our rivers around here with a couple exceptions. 

Yakima River has begun to drop below 5000cfs which makes for a good 20+ mile float if you are up for it.  Caddis in the evenings, streamers against the bank and of course a bobber if you want to be mesmerized as it swiftly undulates in the roaring current. 

Otherwise, Puget Sound has bait strung all over the place and our native SRC's are chasing them like they are going out of style AND it is much closer to home. 

Cedar is still high but if you know your places there are ways to get on it still just be careful.  Big stimulator's and streamers should work great to draw strikes against the bank and caddis in the evenings as well in the softer seams you can get them to.

Carp are on the spawn in many local lakes and bass are in their summer feeding frenzy so don't hesitate to SUP Lake Washington, Alice Lake, Beaver Lake, Green Lake or any of the others around town. 

Other than that, we are holding our breath for flows to come down around the region so we can begin helping you get on some of our great summer trout haunts! 

Stay positive, fish the Sound and call with any questions.
