...The reputation of The Evening Hatch is based directly on our developed and original programs, quality facilities and our staff that greets you at the Yakima river fly shop, at one of our lodges or the guide that shows you the best of the fishery. We are fortunate to have our crew. These dedicated professionals are hard working, fleece wearing, sunglass bearing, weather tattered, sun lined, oar pulling, fish netting, fly tying, genuine fly fishing guides, bums, chefs, hosts and more. At first glance they may appear to be aloof, out there, glaze eyed, robotic and/or just 'guide like.' A closer look reveals a group of people that will do whatever it takes to make your day the best it can be, period! Our programs have always been 'the first' on the east slope of the Cascades. We guarantee our service.


Our Philosophy... Have fun, enjoy the Arteries of the Earth, learn some new techniques and catch some fish! We won't presume to tell you how to fish; Whether it be dry flies, streamers, nymphing, swinging, skating...We are well versed in all techniques with a fly rod, both single hand and double handers, trout and steelhead and can teach you the intricacies of the method(s) you are interested in.. If there is something you would like or not like on your trip, let us know and we will make it happen!
