The Yakima River is in Washington State about 2 hours east of Seattle in the rain-shadow of the Cascade Mountains. The Yakima is Washington's only Blue Ribbon River and is a popular day trip for anglers from the Seattle area, although many guests elect to stay at Canyon River Ranch Lodge which is next door to Red's Fly Shop and Canyon River Grill. The Yakima is considered a "Big Western" style river and attracts anglers from all over the world wanting to pursue a high quality floating and fly fishing experience.
Our Yakima River guided trips are float style adventures and most fishing is done from a moving drift boat or fishing raft with 2 anglers in each boat. We float anywhere from 5-20 miles in a single day depending upon river conditions. If anglers enjoy wading, simply express this to your guide and they will do their best to give you the best possible wade fishing experience.
