Fall is in full swing here in the northwest. Temperatures are getting colder, fall rains are upon us and our rivers are full of fish. This time of the year is my favorite for chasing salmon. Whether bank or boat, river or stream, fish are pretty much in every part of our state. Regulations have been difficult this year due to poor pre-season forecasts, but the fish are here despite the projections. I have been fishing all across the state the last month or so, learning new waters and exploring stretches of familiar ones. The results could not be any better right now. One trip even resulted in a mixed bag of 2 steelhead, a king salmon and a few cutthroat trout. This is what I love about our state. Our rivers are dropping and the fish will be snapping. It is time to get geared up and ready. I sure am, and I cannot wait to share them with you.
