Naches River Guided Fly Fishing Trips

The Naches River is a wild freestone stream that sees little angling pressure and boasts productive fly fishing for moderate sized wild trout. Less anglers and a chance to catch native Westslope Cutthroat on dry flies makes for a memorable adventure!  Naches River trout are fat, healthy, and very very strong.

The catch is composed of native cutthroat and wild rainbows, most of which are in the 10-16" range. The angler to fish ratio is wonderful and we feel like the overall experience is second to none!

Floating and Wading

We offer both float and wade fishing trips on the Naches depending on the water level. The Naches runs very fast in the early summer, so the float trip itself is very exciting and worth doing as an eco adventure itself.

At times, it can be a true combination of white water rafting and fly fishing! Sometimes it is so fast that we might have to remind you to look up at the cliffs, elk, and deer instead of at your fly or the giant boulders that we are squeezing the raft between!
Wade fishing is more productive later in the summer when river flows are too low to support efficient floating. This is a great time to wade because there is very little fishing pressure and the adventure is fantastic.

Where is the Naches River?

The Naches River joins the Yakima River about 20 miles downstream of our fly shop and lodge. The areas we guide and fish are less than an hour away. The river itself tumbles down the east side of Chinook Pass and is created at the confluence of the Bumping, American, and Little Naches Rivers.
