The Yakima: A Little Bit of Montana in Washington

Drive an hour and a half east of Seattle and you can will find fly fishing that rivals that on Montana’s best rivers, according to many who fish the Upper Yakima River and environs. While fly fishing participation wanes in some parts of the country, the numbers are growing by leaps and bounds here, according to Mike Johnston in the Daily Record. “Jim Gallagher, of the Yakima River Fly Shop and guide service in Cle Elum, said the general level of activity for his business has gone up 25 to 30 percent this year over last year, the biggest increase since he began the service nearly five years ago.”
