Our History

The Northwest Fly Anglers (NFA) is a family oriented fly fishing club that is devoted to the sport of fly fishing through monthly programs, educational activities, environmental projects, and fishing outings.
The NFA was founded in 1972 and is based on the premise that fly fishing not only encourages the conservation of natural resources but also provides a means for individuals to come together to learn about and enjoy beautiful settings and fishing experiences in the Northwest.
Anyone who is interested in fly fishing is encouraged to come to our monthly meetings to meet members and learn about the NFA. Club membership is open to all ages and skill levels. We welcome individuals, couples, and families interested in the sport of fly fishing.
Naches River August 22-24
The Naches River starts east of Chinook Pass and ends when it flows into the Yakima River in Yakima. We fish the upper 40 miles above where the Tieton River comes in. Thirteen miles of the river are catch and release. There are many rainbow and some large cutthroat trout, all quite eager to take a fly because they aren’t fished over very much. 
One Day Puget Sound Saltwater Outing at Tacoma Narrows on September 13
Join us for the NFA's annual saltwater outing. Last year we fished for pinks, this year we fish for feisty resident coho salmon and sea-run cutthroat. Renowned NFA member, author, photographer, and blogger, David Williams will be our cherished host again for this inimitable opportunity to learn from a master. 
Klickitat River for Salmon and Steehead September 27-28
Southeast Washington's Klickitat River provides passage for a variety of native anadromous fish: Fall runs of Chinook Salmon and Coho (Silver) as well as wild and hatchery steelhead. Catching wild steelhead in the Fall over 12 pounds is not uncommon.

Cedar River Watershed Education Center at Rattlesnake Lake on October 11.
Join us this fall as we continue the work to reclaim this area for native plants that are good for fish and other wildlife. NFA volunteers will help shape the future of this site by planting native plants or removing invasive weeds and mulching along the shore of Rattlesnake Lake. Bring your family, friends and join NFA friends to be a part of the story!
