Hey Everybody- Nice to hear some people giving more advice on fishing the Snohomish. I know that for many years I was incredibly intimidated by how huge and deep the river is. Do not be afraid. I have most recently had the best luck fishing downstream from the 522 bridge, even though last time an old guy laughed at me and said, "I ain't never caught a trout in this river." The drop of the bank is a quick one, so really you will not be wading out into the river but along the bank to fish more area of the stream. I was fishing with two different flies: modified muddler and a parachute humpy. The muddlers I tie are a little bit stripped to show the gold tinsel more. When fishing the muddler I am using my trusty dry line with about a 12' leader/tippet and a piece of mid-size splitshot. Hope to see some people fishing the river!!!
