Fly-fishing is one of the fastest growing activities on the Yakima River. Now, while clients are "chasing rainbows," they have a great place to stay thanks to the opening of Canyon River Ranch Lodge, Washington’s newest northwest fishing lodge.
Located in the Yakima Canyon, Canyon River Ranch Lodge is an upscale, rustic accommodation with ten 880-square-foot two-bedroom suites with fully appointed kitchens, one-and-one-half bathrooms and a private patio or veranda. Nightly rates range from $195-$295. The lodge also features a Great Room with massive stone fireplace, library, game room and outdoor terrace.
The Yakima River is a classic western trout stream in every sense. The riffles and pools provide great places for prize rainbows to hide and feed. Anglers must release all trout on this river, and they are restricted to artificial flies or lures with a barbless hook.
Anglers in Washington call the Yakima River a blue-ribbon trout stream, meaning it's the best in the state. The prime periods for fishing the Yakima are spring, when flows are highly variable but a wide variety of insect hatches provide excellent angling, and fall (September-November).
