Fished the Skagit three days this past week with one hookup of a bright winter run at Cape Horn. A two foot jump released it. A hatchery spawner at Grandy Creek brought to hand and photographed. Several dollies. One drift the dollies were so thick we couldn't keep them off our flies. Or so it seemed.
I don't know for sure but, there seems to be a lot of fish in the Skagit. I wonder if the biologists know what they are doing? Every run of fish this season has been good. The kings, the silvers, the chums, even the searun cuts, all were good size runs. I feel the spring steelhead are going to be there. Lots of them. To bad.
