Before you read this and watch the video!
We have guides available this Saturday, Sunday, and Monday! Call (509) 933-2300. Book an afternoon/evening float to experience some excellent dry fly fishing. We rarely do this, but you need to get out here. Half Days from 2 pm to dusk are the best way to go for a dry fly specific trip. If you are fishing a Full Day - ask for an 11 am start time.
We couldn't row upstream enough to get positioned above the best trout, which is preferred, so we had to cast upstream around a tree to get an angle. This creates many challenges. You might "line" the fish and spook them. The darn tree is in the way AND the currents are vicious.
The SOLUTION is a Reach Cast. This slacks some line, gets your fly line out of the view of the fish, AND keeps you out of the tree!
