RE:Putting Gregg onto a summer run...
If it's not too late...
The Skykomish has been fishing well. The Cow is, as usual, loaded with steelhead. The Kalama has a lot of fish in the upper section, and you know how beautiful the upper river is in fall >sigh<. I would also hit the Snoqualmie, Upper Stilly, Green near Palmer, and on the Peninsula - stop at the Elwha, go on to the Sol Duc, the upper Bogey, and the Hoh Rain Forest. That should keep you busy!
Tony says small surface flies have been the ticket, in fact his fish-magnet wife just landed a 15 pound wild summer fish on the Sky the other day!
I would do anything to have the week in steelhead country but it's not in the cards for me this month.
Use some of your striper-schnauzer skills on these fish... especially the Estey rip swing, complete with feed and hangdown - you'll connect.
TAKE LOTS OF PICTURES... some of us are having withdrawls!
