JOIN US IN "TROUT CAMP"

One weekend a month, beginning in June and operating until the end of September, the Professional Guiding Staff encourages you to join us in "Trout Camp".  The WBFC Trout Camp is designed to give you and your party, the ultimate outdoor experience, while learning or fine tuning your fly fishing skills, under the close observations of a professional instructor.

Trout Camp, is a two day, fly fishing experience and camping extravaganza, hosted by the guiding staff of WBFC.  Here, you will spend one and a half days, floating and fly fishing the famous blue ribbon waters of the Yakima River, in a comfortable, custom drift boat with a Professional Guide from Worley Bugger Fly Co. 

The first day of trout camp is a half day of fly fishing and guided instruction that will begin in the afternoon.  If your party are of the novice or intermediate fly fishers category, then we will spend the first portion of "Trout Camp" teaching you the essential information that you will need to begin your fly fishing interim.  If your party's skill levels are more of the advanced fly fishing ability range, we will fish and work on specific skill sets in an arena that will take your fly fishing proficiencies to the next level.  The pace of the first day and time we spend working on techniques, will solely depends on your groups' fly fishing ability levels.

The latter portion of the first day, we will float in drift boats putting those new found fly fishing skills to work, where eventually we will arrive at "Trout Camp". Here, you are treated to an evening river side, in a specially prepared campsite in the Upper Yakima River Canyon, along the banks of the Yakima River.  In the morning, wake up with the song birds chirping along the river's edge and be treated to a hearty breakfast, a great cup of coffee and a full day of fly fishing the Yakima River.
