Fishing the Teanaway River.

We fished the Teanaway River last week. It is less than 2 hours from Seattle, just outside the town of Cle Elum. It seems to get a lot of anglers as there are many “No Trespassing” signs. We hit the North Fork first and found some very small fish. We fished near a bridge which probably sees a lot of pressure. Luckily, we went mid week so we didn’t see any other anglers that day. It turned out to be a beautiful day and it is a great small stream to fish in the summer.Screen shot 2013-07-01 at 3.03.17 PMThe fields were full of flowers and Lando made sure to stop and smell as many as he could.

There were plenty of bugs around and just like the forks of the Snoqualmie River, a size 14 Stimulator was magic. All of the small hungry fish were voraciously attacking flies on the surface.

Bill is standing on the light colored bottom where there was a lot of fish food, but no fish to be found. We have to find the dark bottom to find the fish.Screen shot 2013-07-01 at 3.03.52 PMThis is a closer look at the bugs on the bottom of the creek.
