I took my dog for a walk along the Skagit River in Burlington on Saturday. While walking along a stretch that is quite narrow I notice a flash of silver in the water. I put on my sun glasses to see 3 large, bright silver submarines slowly making thier way upstream. I went into the local fly shop a little later to hear that Dec Hogan, while teaching a casting class at Young's Bar in Mt. Vernon, had seen several fish rising.
The spring run is in the river. It would appear that a lot of fish are now moving through the Skagit. Sad.
