"Red's is Located ON Washington's Only Blue Ribbon Trout Stream - The Yakima River"

Yakima River Fly Fishing

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. Our friendly guides will do everything they can to make your adventure the best it can be.

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.
