We want you to succeed. Fly fishing the Yakima River can be a challenging task, and the best way we've found to train you is to invite you to fish alongside us. Join this outing as many times as you see fit for continuing education and an opportunity to learn about varying seasons, hatches, and river conditions.

Wade Fishing Adventure Class

Fish Alongside a Friendly Pro

Our course that is based on the Yakima River is a great way to learn both practical fly fishing skills, and the nuances of wade fishing the Yakima Canyon. Each time you join this course it will be different. Varying weather, seasons, and hatches mean that you'll learn each and everytime you join this event. 

The Yakima is a big challenging river, but our instructors will detail out exactly how, when, where, and why to approach the Yakima River for success. You will be able to replicate these ideas and techniques on any river, so there is immense value to this specific class.

You will meet at the fly shop and go through a brief orientation. The instructor will make sure everyone has what they need and you will head for the river. The class will caravan to several different access sites learning and fishing at various points along the river. The class is officially about 3 hours long, students may stay on the river and fish the balance of the day on their own. The focus of the class is definitely on learning, you have the rest of your life to put this new knowledge to good use!
