    This is it! this is the year I am going to catch a steelhead from the Skykomish. This year I plan to put in a lot of hours and fish all the most likely spots that I have learned from my friends who are Skykomish steelhead fishing veterans, wish me luck.

    WA-Fly,

    What's so special about this year? If I was going to pick a year to catch a steelhead from the Sky, I'd try to pick a year with a good return.

    It's not that it is special, I am just going to put all of my fishing time into catching a steelhead from the Sky because I never have

    Beautiful river with some amazing runs to swing. Learn a couple really well at all water levels and it'll happen. Pick a mostly black wiggly fly and enjoy the casting. Eventually something shiny will grab it and you will be a hero.

    I did that! Not on a fly though, so it doesn't count I guess. There was plenty of glass in the parking lot next time I showed up.
