Aquatic Insects Of The Yakima River

"Blue Wing Olive"

"March Brown"

"Salmon Fly" "Pale Morning Dun" "Fall Caddis"




May-June May-June-July-August Sept-Oct
The rainbows of the Yakima are well known for their aerobic, aerobatic  style and grace. The beauty of these wild creatures is unrefined and unsurpassed.  The resident rainbows of the Yakima are also well known for their stubbornness and at certain times of the year will impose their policies.  A drift of your imitation, drag free is required for attentive attentions.  If you can achieve this desired effect, they will reward you.
Aquatic hatches are an ongoing event throughout the entire year on Central Washington's Yakima River.  During particular times in the season, these creatures both big and small, hatch in abundance throughout the main stem of the river.  It is during these peak times that fish feed at optimum levels.  Scheduling your guided tour around a favorite insect emergence is particularly popular with many of our guests.
Because of seasonal changes and day light savings time, the "Full Day Tour" initially begins the first day of April.  Our tour times are usually based upon insect emergence activity and the time of day that is occurring.  During specific times of the year, the full day tours start time will vary depending on weather conditions and optimal feeding times for the fish.  This schedule will be address at the time of your reservation.
On the Worley Bugger Fly Co., Day Tour  you are treated to a extensive, streamside barbeque style lunch   Our guiding professionals are not only excellent fly fishing instructors, but also excel in the culinary arts as well.  Here, our guides prepare a delicious ,healthy, hearty, hot meal with all the amenities as you relax under the warm Kittitas Valley sunshine.  Of course, fishing is always an option for guests as preparation of the meal is conducted.
