Heck, say one for me as well. The rain we've had has made her start to spike. Luckily, she's already done a turn around and heading down. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE keep dropping!!!!! Only one more day before I head that way. Thursday is no biggie, but Fri-Sun is my main fishing days on the river.

We'll see......... I guess plan B may have to go into effect. The Wynoochee is still holding.

With the Hoh, a prayer is often all you have when the rains hit. :eek:

Good Luck!

I've fished that river from almost blown to a downright trickle (which barely happens). She's still coming down. I normally get about 4-8 trips on the Hoh per year. Hopefully she'll keep dropping. Won't be on the river with boat until Friday. So tomorrow hopefully it'll drop some more.

Hey Jerry just leave your gear rods at home this time take only bug rods...

I only am using my single and doublehanders. I will be packing conventional gear, but it's for my passengers. I won't be using it at all, because I HATE spinning reels. Don't use them. They're my girlfriends rods. But she does want to try out a spey rod, so I'm packing my now "backup" rod (my Cabela's brand St Croix 14' 9#) for her since I picked up the Sage from Doublespey. I'll be throwing that rod mostly. I'm trying to get the hang of it. But also packing my 1 hander, because I can do a quick flip with that while I'm floating. It's kinda hard to be running the sticks, and swinging a spey. So will have my 1 hander ready for the quick flips.

Well, river is still dropping. Little by little, but still coming down. Hopefully she'll come in full force by this weekend. We'll see.
