For those of us who live in Washington. This is the time to head for the Skagit River. The conditions will be about as perfect as they can be this Sunday for hooking into a winter steelhead. We have had a very good rain Thursday night into Friday morning. The river is now cresting from the additional water. http://wa.water.usgs.gov/realtime/htmls/skagit.html
The river will drop and clear tonight through tomorrow. Making for perfect conditions on Sunday. I will be checking out my gear and tying flies. I feel a great day on the river is coming. This is what a winter steelheader lives for! Man am I getting exited!
