Skykomish Report - Chasing those Early Natives

Did a dawn to dusk trip down the Sky (from Sultan to Lewis Street). We were hoping that the recent rains would raise the river level a bit, but that wasn't happening. In fact, the river level was falling rapidly and would make fishing very tough.

The day started clear and cold and ended rainy windy and Very Cold! The traditional runs weren't fishing well, as there wasn't enough flow to swing the fly through the productive spots. We fished many small pockets and several stretches more popular with plug pullers in higher water. We talked to a plug pulling boat that had caught their one steelhead. In the whole day's float, we only saw two other boats.

We covered a lot of water, but there just don't seem to be many fish in the Skykomish yet. Too bad . . . both Sinktip and I were hoping for a nice chromer native and the bonus of a dozen of Juro's finest being added to the Wheatley!
