Yakima River | RAINBOW & CUTTHROAT
The Yakima and Cle Elum Rivers are Washington’s most popular and open all year trout rivers. Located an hour and half from Seattle, both rivers offer a wide variety of fly fishing opportunities throughout the year for rainbow and native cutthroat trout employing dry fly, streamer and nymphing tactics.
Puget Sound | SEA-RUN CUTTHROAT
Puget Sound is Washington’s most expansive and diverse fishery with well over 1500 miles of shoreline to explore. Native Coastal Cutthroat trout reside in these salty waters and are available throughout the entire year. Chum and Pink salmon fry enter the saltwater igniting a feeding frenzy beginning in late February which begins the baitfish season in the Sound.
Mountain Streams | NATIVE TROUT
The small and often lesser known stream littered around the Cascade and Olympic Mountain ranges are the true gems for fly anglers, particularly those visiting Seattle as they are an easy strike from the city. Light, slow action rods are fantastic and novice anglers will thrive on these beautiful streams. Surrounded by old growth timber and cool, gin clear water, these streams are home to native cutthroat and rainbow trout with scenery unmatched by other trout rivers in Washington.
Steelhead | ON THE SWING
The wild Steelhead is Washington’s state fish. Globally known for its size and fighting mannerisms, these fish are spread far and wide through the state. This is where we pursue them through the year.
Washington Lakes | Warm Water
For those into still water fly fishing, we have some exceptional lakes in the area both urban and remote to chase trout, bass, carp and even muskie.
