The "Blue Ribbon" trout waters of the Yakima are home to Rainbows, Cutthroats, good hatches and gorgeous scenery. It's a catch and release trout river that's open all year long. Geographic diversity from the Cascades to the farmlands to the arid basin of Central Washington give the Yakima it's characteristic of three rivers in one. Add cool, oxygenated irrigation flows during the hottest summer months with salmon returning to spawn in the Fall, the Yakima is an amazing fishery and classic Northwest river.
Anytime is a good time to fish. June through August is drift boat season with elevated irrigation flows, shorts and sandals, tossing big foam to the bank. September through October is wade and float fishing with hatches of mayflies, caddis and stones. Winter finds big fish concentrated in slow moving water with subtle takes. The spring river awakens to Skwala stones, different mayflies and expecting the unexpected hatch. Any Given Day!
