RE:We have a winner!

After 12 years of non-stop fishin' out there myself I'm afraid I have to agree... especially with the saltchuck salmon in the equation, spring chinook (although tough on a fly I've done it in the Lewis) then the lower Columbia summer run steelhead that start in May and make a strong showing in June, July - Neah Bay and Sekiu starts getting big kings in July and the resident silvers are always around. I usually hit my first summer chromer right around father's day and it got better and better through August. By that time everythings going nuts with the salmon runs out in the straits, and the steelies start looking at the surface for caddis. Fall is the greaseliner's mecca, and the winter starts it all over again. It's a never ending cycle of fishing out there, yup I know all about it.

I guess my point is, if I had to pick a time to swap a trip with us for stripers and blues it would be early summer. That would work well on both sides of the fence IMHO.

When are we going to drag you out here?
