Yakima River

 

The Yakima River originates just east of Snoqualmie Pass, near the town of Cle Elum. The Yakima is a typical mountain trout stream, with crystal-clear water flowing through towering pine trees.

The upper river has a healthy population of rainbow trout as well as native westslope cutthroat trout. As the river flows east through the farm country of the Kittitas Valley, it starts to meander and braid, creating many different river channels which offers great fishing for rainbows and cutthroats ranging from 12-20 inches.

The Yakima River Canyon is the last section of catch and release water on the river, and is also the most famous. “The Canyon” boasts the highest fish densities on the Yakima. Rainbows dominate most of the catch in The Canyon and when you’re not busy catching fish, you might see deer, eagles and bighorn sheep that call this area home.
