RE:Wind Storm Question
Leaving them there does make a lot of sense if they do not impact the migration. They do provide and create great current breaks and cover. We had the same affect on the high mountain streams in Colorado. Run off would wash most of the junk away leaving behind just enough to hide some nice large brown trout for those willing to take a long hike along a small mountain stream armed with only a 3 weight and a box of dry flies.
I have yet to experience the thrill of catching a wild steel head from the rivers in the PNW. But battling a 18" wild brown on a 7' 3 weight with 7x tippet on a remote high altitude stream does not suck either.
I fish because the voices in
my head tell me to...
