    Good points Ira. Not many eastsiders will be driving 300 miles to sit in a rain forest and have maybe a 10% chance of touching a fish. But if you are close by-why not? It should be fun.

    On the other hand Omak offers a much greater opportunity for moderate weather and a better certainty of catching fish. I prefer to error on the side of dry. One thing to take note of is that the Spokane Fly Fishers usually have an event on the reservation at about the same time. I haven't seen their 2011 schedule yet but depending on where they go it could have an impact on camping sites.

    The SFF(I used to be a member long ago) stays at Reynold's Resort on Buffalo Lake. Another excellent and cheap camping opportunity, with rustic cabins at 20-25$ a night. And if I remember right they show up mid-April.
    I realized that the Hoh down was the same weekend, but most eastsiders wouldn't be attending. I only posted this on the stillwater page to see if anyone would even be interested. Alot more postive resposes than I expected.

    My work schedule in March-April is always a crapshoot but if the stars align (I put my availability at 60/40) I'll be there. Omak (or O'mak as I've seen it written up in the past :)) has been on my list for several years.

    No apostrophe in Omak, though there is in the San' Poil.

    I'll take 60/40, heck I had to request the weekend off from my wife now because of her work schedule.

    Ira..

    Time to revise and ramp this up! I'm in and most likely taking the 18th off to drive over. Triploid are you still planning to give us pointers? How about a place to meet up? Etc...

    Ira..

    It literally is the last class that I can even take before my journeymans lic. expires. There's no other make up classes either!

    I hope you guys catch PIGS all day long! Wait, what am I saying? I hope the wind blows 25 mph and, and, and you you catch a cold! :clown:

    Have a great time! Catch one for me will ya!?

    In your back yard or your bath tub. If you showed up here I'd have to shoot myself. And I don't even have a gun.

    Jim, let's go fishing. Stop giving me grief. Come on man. You said the weather was pretty good. Weather has been pretty problematic around here for fishing the rivers. You do know where I might find a Salmo Trutta or two don't you?

    Says the guy that already knows that he WONT be fishing the Omak this weekend. I on the other hand WILL be fishing somewhere. The OP is likely out so Omak is as good a destination as any.

    Do it Mumbles. Omak Lake for some trophy cutthroat. And if you bring some big, articulated streamers you might get you your Salmo Trutta the same weekend.
