Advice on Yakima River Guides.

Posted by Tom on Friday, August 20, 1999 at 06:14:26PM

I am looking for advice on Yakima river guides. Any suggestions, warnings? Looking to buy a one day float trip for a friend as a gift. Thanks ahead of time for any tips.

I have not actually taken a guided trip with him, but Steve Worley of the Worley-Bugger fly-shop in Ellensburg runs one hell of an on-line business and is MORE than happy to give lots of tips on fishing the river. I belong to his Bug of the Month Club (good flies, great prices) but even before I joined he always returned my email questions within a day and gave me more information than I asked for. If and when I take a guided trip, it will be with him. Check out his site here by clicking on Flyshops, Guides and Outfitters. On his link you'll find a FREE monthly update on the river (as well as weekly reports) and I have learned a ton on-line. He believes that there are enough fish in the river for everybody and is not shy about sharing the wealth of information he has gained. Give him a try!

I wholeheartedly agree with Steve Malloch. So much so that I have a guided trip planned on the Yak' with Steve Worley's outfit, Worley Bugger Fly Co., out of Ellensburg, for this fall. He has consistently responded to all of my online inquiries and I reference his Yakima River report every time I head to the river.

Steve Worley is where I send all my clients and I have never heard any complaints.

A buddy of mine and I floated with Steve Worley last April and had a great time and learned a lot in the process. He knows the river and gave us the lowdown on the upper river and the canyon and let us decide which we wanted to fish that day. At that time he said fish were not coming to the top until about 2:00pm and sure enough we saw no activity until 2:15 but than we saw plenty of action. Great guy and a great guide, gets my recommendation.

Thanks guys, I booked a trip with Steve Worley, and I am sure my friends will be very happy. I should also mention that he was very flexible in dealing with leaving an open date, and getting me the information I needed to put in the gift envelope.
