Kevin Mahaney grew up in Ellensburg and has been fishing the Yakima river and it’s tributaries all of his life. After attending Central Washington University for two years, Kevin moved to Driggs, Idaho to ski and fish bum before he returned to Washington where he completed his degree in business marketing at Western Washington University. While Kevin attended Western he was the marketing intern for Fly FishJournal, one of the industries premier fishing magazines.
During his break from school in Idaho’s Teton Mountains, Kevin was able to devote more time to his passion for fly fishing on waters like the Henry’s and South fork’s of the Snake River. Because of this experience Kevin brings a technical approach to The Evening Hatch that includes an unsurpassed knowledge of hatches and how to catch big trout on dryflies. Along with his ability to catch fish, Kevin brings his pastwork experiences in the customer service and fishing industries together to teach anglers of all skill levels, especially those new to the sport, how to up their game. Kevin is absolutely one of the most personable and likable people you will ever meet, in or out of a fishing boat.
