A greater opportunity to fish for rainbow trout in March at Canyon River Ranch in Ellensburg, Washington. Here is Craig Hettinger: "Through March we are running a special which is $299 a boat. That's for two people, includes lunch, lasts for about 6 1/2 hours and if they pick the right day where there is room in the Lodge, for another hundred dollars they can have a room at the Lodge. Give me a little bit of the ins and outs of what River you are on and what the customer should expect. It is the Yakima River and what we are looking for is consistent 42 - 46° water temperature so the skwallas start hatching. The nymphs are now starting to move, that's the first stone fly hatch that happens on the Yakima which is a big stone fly River. They crawl out, mate on the bank, unfortunately the males die, and the females go back out and lay eggs so there is a black egg sac. And we are looking to throw dry flies for big fish in the spring, 18 to 24 rainbow trout. Cutthroats on the upper river but there won't be as many skwalla on the upper river. Most of the skwallas are down here in the Canyon next to the Lodge. Usually when you are throwing dries like during the caddis hatch and the mayfly hatch, you have two target a big fish because there are so many small fish eating at the same time. But now every time you hit the water with a skwalla, man, the big fish chase the little fish off big time.
