Brian,

I had not planned on it. This is family time and with the Skeena, Thompson and Snake coming up, I was going to give my wife a break. however, if you have some good leads....

I do know a nice spot where you could try for some Chinooks and early run Pinks fresh from the ocean. Lots of Trout fishing as well.
