I just moved to North Bend, WA, and have a couple of questions. Are the rivers in this area, wading rivers, or do you need a drift boat. I have fished most of the rivers in Michigan, for trout - steelhead - and salmon. And most of them, compared to what I see around here, are more like streams or brooks, in comparison. Most of my trout experience is in Michigan and the eastern U.S. and Canada. The gradients seem much higher here, and the water much faster flowing. Any insight would be appreciated. I'm a catch and release fisherman, and will be trying to teach a couple of my brothers the joys of fly fishing. HELP! PLEASE!
