Because We All Live Downstream
Landed my first Steelhead on the fly last Sunday, a hatchery fish but still a defining moment in my life as a fly fisherman. Beginner hole on the Kalama, double beaded stone, the weather change Saturday night moved up some fresh fish. As a recent transplant from Colorado I'm thrilled to be in the game but I have to say I am equally disappointed by the way some people treat this waterway. The vast amounts of trash and discarded line were appalling! Is it common to see this same kind of disrespect on other rivers or is this unique to the Kalama? I did pack out a full bag of trash on Saturday so maybe the good karma helped with the fish gods?
