Father's Day Blast/Cast/Raft

Dear Families,


Bring dad out to Red's Fly Shop for a unique day to remember.  Our Father's Day event involves river rafts, live country music, shotguns, fly rods, BBQ, and finally... locally brewed Whipsaw Beer.  Lets show our appreciation for all the old man has done over the years.  Like attending band concerts, ballet recitals, field trips, and every dad's favorite adventure... the dreaded parent teacher conference!  Need we go on?  It's the perfect formula to make a couple of great memories with dad.  He deserves this!


Your family will have two choices of fun adventures, followed by amazing country music and a BBQ at Canyon River Ranch.  Both options include shooting a round of sporting clays with personal instruction included from one of our professional staff members.  This is a fun, safe, and affordable way to learn basic wingshooting or simply shake off the rust. Everyone loves it.

Father's Day Adventure Details



Shooters will be scheduled to start at 9 am, 10 am, or 11 am and our staff will contact you to confirm your start time prior to the trip. We'll provide everything you need, just dress appropriately for your chosen activity. Like water sandals for the Blast 'n Raft option for example.


All families will start with the 2 hour shooting adventure that is great for youth, beginners, or advanced sportsmen.  Groups will return from the shooting course to the resort for a short intermission where you can grab a beer, glass of wine, or lunch at Canyon River Grill which is conveniently located inside Red's Fly Shop!  After the break, groups will enjoy either fly casting lessons or river rafting. 



*there will be plenty of time for a great meal at Canyon River Grill!


The fly casting lessons will be fun and casual.  You can even bring a beverage from Canyon River Grill down to the lawn with you!  Participate for as long or short as you like. 


The river rafting will include transportation for your group upstream a few miles and you will float back down to the resort.  The rafting trip is unguided and this portion of the Yakima Canyon is Class 1 and easy to self navigate.  Captain Dad is in charge! Anyone with kids under 12 should bring their own life jackets to insure proper fit.
