About the Guide
The Evening Hatch started by Jack Mitchell, began guiding on the Yakima in 1988. We are one of the remaining original outfitters on ‘Our Home River.’ Since then our services have expanded substantially, including four post and beam lodging operations. For those who have fished with us, we appreciate your loyal support as this is our 30th year of operating and it continues to be a fun adventure. If you haven’t fished with us, we invite you to join us waterside and experience a day, two, three or more on the water with The Evening Hatch!
Over the years The Evening Hatch has seasoned a good number of the guides that are on the Yakima and in Central/Eastern Washington today. Some are with us and some may be out there on their own or with other outfitters.
The reputation of The Evening Hatch is based directly on our developed and original programs (which were often the first of their kind in the state), quality facilities and our staff that greets you at these locations and our guide that shows you the best of that fishery. We are fortunate to have our crew
