Patrick’s Fly Shop Guided Trips

Patrick’s Fly Shop offers full service guided fly fishing trips around Washington, all year long. The guides we work with are all first aid/CPR certified, fully licensed and insured and USCG licensed where required. Our guides are professional, patient and know how to manage expectations to create a fun client experience. They take their jobs seriously and enjoy teaching clients new skills, learn about the environment and catch a few fish along the way.


Waters We Fish

Yakima River

Just over Snoqualmie Pass on the dry side of the state, the Yakima River is our bread and butter for float trips and the premier trout stream in the state. The Yak is a year-round fishery hosting healthy populations of rainbows, westslope cutthroat and whitefish. Dry flies, nymphs and streamers are all effective at different times of year, based on hatches and conditions. We use drift boats to float the Yakima and fish from the boat and get out of the boat to wade fish as well, when conditions allow. This fishery is about an hour and a half to two hour drive depending on what section of water is fished.

This is a year-round fishery depending on conditions. Prime time on the Yakima is mid-March through mid-November.

Puget Sound

The sea-run cutthroat fishery in Puget Sound is the best kept secret in the Northwest. This is trout fishing with small streamers in shallow, clear saltwater, unlike anywhere else you’ve fished before. Often, anglers can watch cutthroat chase flies and even occasionally cast to fish crashing bait on the surface. We use power boats to run from spot to spot and fish the water based on tides and wind conditions. And, as a bonus, you don’t need to drive two hours to get there. This fishery is in our backyard. At times we even catch cutthroat within sight of the Space Needle.

This is a year-round fishery depending on conditions. Prime time on Puget Sound where we fish is Mid-April through November.

Skagit River

The legendary Skagit River flows about an hour and a half (give or take) north of the shop. During winter and early spring we guide the Skagit for native steelhead on flies. We only swing flies for these fish, preferring to put in time and work to reap the reward of a wild steelhead caught the hard way. It takes time, effort and a bit of luck, but we feel these magnificent fish are worth it. We also run limited trips for bull trout and cutthroat in the fall and winter.

While the season may run from January through April, Skagit steelhead seasons vary from year to year and may even be completely closed. Call the shop for the most current info.

Snoqualmie Forks

If you’re looking for a low pressure, walk and wade trip to slow down and enjoy an afternoon on the water, this is it. The Snoqualmie Forks are located 30-45 minutes east of the shop and offer and plethora of water for the wading angler. This is the perfect venue for new anglers or for those looking to improve their casting and fishing skills. We fish light rods and small dry flies for these wild trout that average 6-10 inches. What they lack in size they make up for in beauty and willingness. The backdrop of this fishery runs the gamut from off the bumper, easy access, to hiking through the forest in the shadows of jagged peaks. Truly a local gem.

The Snoqualmie Forks are open year-round, but practically speaking this is a late June through September fishery.


Our Guides


Will Myrick learned to fish while growing up in the sport fishing capital of the world, South Florida. Spending his youth patrolling the beaches of Pine Island Sound, he became adept at catching the redfish and snook lurking in the mangroves and grass flats. 2015 brought a cross country move to the Seattle area and he hasn’t looked back since. He currently guides full time and works at the shop here and there too. When not rowing clients down the Yakima or showing anglers the ropes on small streams, he can be found (or not found) on trail to an alpine lake or stalking small mountain stream trout with dry flies and his dog, Oswald.


Brett Wedeking was born in the Seattle area and has fished since he can remember. He has spent the last four decades fishing all over Washington, the Northwest and the world. His fly fishing and guiding experience runs deep, beginning in the mid 2000’s on the small streams on the west slope of the Cascades. From there he went on to guide all over the state, obtained a USCG captains license and spent six seasons guiding in Alaska. Today he hosts international fly fishing trips, guides on Puget Sound for sea-run cutthroat, the Yakima for trout and the Skagit basin for steelhead and other species. Possessing a wealth of knowledge and skill, Brett always strives to make sure his clients are learning and having fun while on the water chasing fish.
