Saturday, May 18, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., friends of Waterbrook invite all to its fifth annual Fly Fishing Day, a casual, relaxed day on the Waterbrook pond where casters of all abilities will gather and explore this time-honored Northwest tradition. Festivities include fly-tying instruction, fly-casting classes, Dutch Oven campfire cooking by John Spain, and a little friendly competition led by event sponsors, Walla Walla Fly Fishers club. The Waterbrook pond is stocked with rainbow trout. Admission is free to all and all ages are welcome.
•Members of the Walla Walla Fly Fishers club will answer questions, lead fly tying techniques and hold casting lessons
Troutwater Guide Service from Ellensburg and Cle Elum will be on site to help and talk about their guide service on many of their favorite local rivers and streams.
•As in previous years, outdoorsman John Spain will cook an entire four-course meal over open campfires in Dutch Ovens—each dish made with Waterbrook wine.
•Delicious tacos from chef Maria Carmona and wine tasting are available for purchase just steps away at Waterbrook’s tasting room (perfect for the non-fishing companions who come along). Relax and view the fly fishing activities on the large outdoor patio or cool off indoors. Families are welcome at the tasting room.
