Great info Dan!
I am a veteran of beach fishing, but have never done it in the big lakes for steelhead. Sounds like fun.
The primary reason I want to come is to fish CND summer rods for Skamanias when the fish are willing to move to the fly (as opposed to moving the fly to the fish).
Maybe I will do a stopover on a trip out to the PNW in September. The summer runs are in their prime out west then and I can put a two-fer trip together to cut down on expenses.
Thanks for the invite - keep me posted on what's happening down that way.
