The Yakima River - Washington Fly Fishing at It’s best. The Yakima is located on the eastern “dry side” of the Cascade mountains, in Central Washington. The Blue Ribbon catch and release stretch of the Yakima, from Cle Elum to Roza dam, is filled with wild Rainbow and Cutthroat trout and an amazing diversity of wildlife. The river and its surroundings change dramatically as it flows from mountains to desert and from season to season, offering a wide variety of aquatic and riparian habitat.
