of the Snoqualimie. I made my first trip up there saturday, after recovering from some serious surgrey. I realizied that I first fished the river in 1986, and I have a few opinions about fishing the South Fork. First, I think the biggest fish are in the lower part of the river. I caught the 3rd biggest fish I have seen in the river. I do not waste my time with any water unless there are log jams and deep holes. That is where I catch the most fish. Finally, I catch more fish on dry flys, but catch the biggest on nymphs. I realize these are not earth shattering observations, but I have seen alot of flyfishermen fish in water that looks good, but quite often does not hold fish. I wonder what other things people have learned about the South Fork. I do know this: it is easily my favorite river in Washington State, and that includes the Yakima. Some times, there are things that are more important to me then the size and quanity of fish in a river.
