Yakima River History

The Yakima River has been known as a Blue Ribbon fishery for years. In the early 90's catch and release regulations were implemented on the river to help strengthen the local rainbow trout population. The regulations have ensured the trout population's survival and proliferation. The Yakima is quickly becoming world-known and loved by anyone who fishes her waters.

Abundant rainbows average 12 to 14 inches and reach up to 20. Cutthroats, browns and an occasional brookie can also be caught.

Dams, reservoirs and irrigation projects ensure that there is plenty of water for year round fishing as well as almost continuous insect hatches. The abundance of water has encouraged large hatches of stoneflies, caddisflies and mayflies throughout the summer months and many other smaller insects year round.
