- Red's Fly Shop Guide Team
A Unique and Special Trip
The Naches River joins the Yakima River about 20 miles downstream of our fly shop and lodge. The river itself is created at the confluence of the Bumping, American, and Little Naches Rivers.
We offer both float and wade fishing trips on the Naches depending on the water level. The Naches runs very fast in the early summer, so the float trip itself is very exciting and worth doing as an eco adventure itself.
The Naches River is a wild freestone stream that sees little angling pressure and boasts productive fly fishing for moderate sized wild trout. Less anglers and a chance to catch native Westslope Cutthroat on dry flies makes for a memorable adventure! Naches River trout are fat, healthy, and very very strong. The catch is composed of native cutthroat and wild rainbows, most of which are in the 10-16" range. The angler to fish ratio is wonderful and we feel like the overall experience is second to none!
Wade fishing is more productive later in the summer when river flows are low. This is a great time to wade because there is very little fishing pressure and the adventure is fantastic.

"The small water, lack of improved boat ramps, and rough nature of this stream requires use of specialized 2-person guide rafts."
The Red's Fly Shop Guide Team
We are unapologetic about proclaiming the prowess and professionalism of our fly shop staff and guides. Between our shop staff and subcontractor guides we have approximately 30 team members. Their blend of ambition, competitiveness, kindness, fishing skill, work ethic, and patience are like no crew we've ever seen. Our staff is the ultimate team. This means teaching each other, sharing secret fly patterns, insider fishing reports, and helping our other guides on the river get into more fish.
Red's has been at this for a long time and putting together a franchise like this was no accident. We look for talent, character, unique skills, and a strong sense of "customer first" attitude. We're here to serve the customer. That's our mission.
