Providing Guided Fly Fishing Adventures in Washington since 2000

At Yakima River Angler, guiding is a profession, not a summer job. The core guides (Bruce and Mark) have 50+ years of combined experience on the Yakima River, Rocky Ford Creek and a variety other washington waters. We also use other experienced and highly qualified independant guides when the need arises. They are top notch guides (and people) and you will know who your guide will be before your trip. All of our guides are patient, profesional and personable and our goal is simple: Work hard to give you an outstanding and memorable day. We are not a large guide service and there is no Yakima River Angler fly shop. This allows us to be more flexable and personal when planning your trip. Whether you're new to fly fishing or a seasoned veteran, we will tailor your trip to meet your needs.

Waters We Guide

Yakima River. The Blue Ribbon section of the Yakima between Easton and Roza dam is our home water. With 75 miles of diverse water, strict catch and release regulations which ensure a stong population of wild Rainbow and Cutthroat trout and one of the longest dry fly seasons in the West, March through mid-November, the Yakima River is the top fly fishing destination in Washington. Conditions on the Yakima: flows, flow forecasts,temps and weather.

Rocky Ford Creek. Rocky Ford, located near Ephrata in Central Washington, is an alkaline spring creek which supports a wide variety of aquatic and terrestrial trout food, which in turn supports a dense population of trout, many of which are very large. Water temperatures are pretty constant year around and trout are active in all seasons.
