Rendezvous IX Plans and Updates!

February 13, 2018


We invite you to the best event in the west!  This is a family oriented event that seeks to help you engage in the outdoors.  We will have LOTS of engaging fly fishing seminars, but our goal is to help you connect with nature and the wonderful adventures found in the Yakima Canyon and all of the surrounding landscapes. This includes fly fishing, rafting, and shooting sports.

We'll kick things off on Friday afternoon with a couple of our keystone events!  The main event will be on Saturday, so its a great idea to plan for one of these two adventures on either Friday afternoon or Sunday.  

River Rafting Adventure Class - FREE!

*RSVP is Online Only.  No phone reservations please.

We want to take you river rafting for FREE and educate you on how, when, and where to float the Yakima River!  Our team will educate you on how to put together a fun, safe, and adventurous DIY float trip. This applies to both anglers and non anglers.  This River Rafting Adventure Class is broken into two parts, a short indoor class on how to plan and execute a great float and a short river rafting adventure free of charge. 

Women's Cast 'n Blast Combination Lessons -FREE!

*RSVP is Online Only.  No phone reservations please.

We invite all women of all ages to come out here and get trained up in the sports of both wingshooting and fly fishing!  We're offering these free lessons that even include the ammunition, shotguns, and fly rods.  Our goal is to get everyone engaged in these wonderful sports and get the entire family recreating together in the Yakima River Canyon and surrounding areas.

3-D Archery Shoot

Running concurrently for the weekend, we'll be hosting a very casual 3-D archery shoot on our course adjacent to the Red's/Canyon River Ranch property followed by an EPIC cross canyon, cross canyon river shot to raise money for Backcountry Hunters and Anglers.

Shooters will have the chance to lob arrows OVER the Yakima River to raise money for BHA and a "shot" at some amazing prizes!
