RE:Kayaks for fishing, Questions for the forum...
Sounds good to me. I've spent many a fall day swinging Green Butt Skunks on the Wenatchee (my favorite, but now unfortunately closed because of the endangered species listing) and the Kalama. Even better than that is hiking into the high lakes in August. Just watching those cutts come screaming up from 10 feet down to slam a Humpy on the surface is something you just never see anywhere else.
I also know of a little stream within day trip distance of Seattle where you can catch a couple dozen native rainbows (average 10", but go up to 20") on dry flies in a day. In eight years of fishing it, I saw one other fisherman. I wouldn't even tell my mother how to get there.
