RIGHT ON!

Nice fish Ryan... with the warm up, the rain, the forecast, the snowmelt, the slow start, the sudden work deadlines, the unpreparedness, the EVERYTHING I was contemplating postponing or even bagging it... I was just looking for a sign, an omen a will to find a way, and then you set me straight!

WHAT WAS I THINKING?? I am all over this upcoming trip! I think I'd come 3000 miles just to fill my lungs with peninsula air, to fill my head with a north cascades vista, to stand in the push of the river even if it's full of million year old silt as long as there is a faint possibility that something that mankind had nothing to do with wiggled from the gravel near that spot and traveled several thousand ocean miles to forge itself into the ultimate trout. To Spey cast into the currents and swim my bid to beat the odds in what might be the toughest angling game on the continent, and to feel the completeness of success.

At work there is no such thing as a good time to take time off... and invariably when you want to you will have the most urgent deadlines surface. I've been sweating them... sometimes you just have to let them go!

Hope we can hook up on the water together Ryan!

Ryan,

Great picture, more motivation for me to not let work pressures keep me from the steehead rivers. I am in the same situation as Juro. But I will find time some how very soon to get my spring fix.

Got to get prepared for those big summer run skamanias that yes start showing up in May if you know where to go. Thats a bit zipperlip out here.

Best

Hal

Skamania County in Washington State has been the source of a lot of summer run programs both in WA and beyond. I have mixed feelings about their introduction around the state - couldn't see the logic in introducing fish from another place into a river with an existing summer strain. Some rivers had little or no runs, that's different... but putting them in the OP or cascade streams? Columbia streams? Ridiculous!

Great idea in the midwest though.

Juro, Having grown up on the Washougal i do not consider Skamania stock to be steelhead at all. They are a mongrel fish not worthy of anything. (unless thats all you have sorry PM)
That hatchery all by itself decimated the wild steelhead in the Washougal. If you come down this way to fish please do me a personal favor.. Kill every one you catch abd BBQ it. I'd like to see regulations similar to yellowstone lake. There you are required by law to keep all the lake trout you catch.

anyway enough on that rant I am going to the Penninsula as soon as I find out that I am not working today...

Nice fish Ryan. Nice to see you get a picture of one. and that is a great looking fish. Now to try and guess the river...

Now you can retire that picture of you with that fish when you were like 14 years old that is all over the net.

Talking Yeah, but . . .

Nice fish and beautiful scenery - doesn't get much better than that. Now if you can just get someone to snap a pic of your smiling mug along with the fish!

Sean - that pic is of a river Juro and I (and MANY others) love - the upper/mid Hoh.

Juro-
I am off to work but I will email you full details of the conditions of the Hoh and where its been fishing when I get back. Want to make your trip out to Steelhead Land a success!!!

Doublespey, Sean-
I guess that is one of the downsides of fishing alone 95% of the time, you've got no one to snap your mug. And most of the times I do not bother with a camera just because when you are alone and trying to snap a photo of a beautiful wild steelhead, it puts unnecassary stress on the fish.

I hear you Ryan. I fish by myself a bunch and rarely bother with the camera. When I do try and snap a pic , either the fish doesn't cooperate or my clumsy ass falls when trying to corral the fish and I get a nice pic of the sky...

Much safer for the fish and myself if I just let the fish go right away.
