YELLOW DOG ON THE KLICKITAT
For the second leg of the Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures Pacific Northwest Tour, we headed south to the Klickitat River. The crew said farewell to Jeff and CJ at Black Bear Lodge and traveled to The Steelhead Ranch, another program with The Evening Hatch.
Coffee was on at 5:45 AM and soon after followed a hearty breakfast. We tossed gear in the truck and were out the door with owner Jack Mitchell right at sun-up. Fishing the upper canyon of the Klickitat wasn’t easy; the recent rain created some tough conditions. But we managed to bring a fish to hand, thanks to Cameron.
The staff at The Evening Hatch was top-notch — very friendly and accommodating. The lodge amenities are very comfortable and meets all the expectations for a well-run operation. We can’t wait to return! Next, we’ll head across the mighty Columbia to Oregon. Stay tuned!
