I wouldn't necessarily say they're good. I don't have any resources to compare it too, so that doesn't help any. I think it's one of those "grass is greener on the other side" scenarios. People were always talking about how the fishing was better in Washington when I was in Oregon, and now that I'm in Washington I hear people talking about the fishing being better in Oregon. I will say though, the D is an amazing river that I could fish for the rest of my life never touching another river and I would still have more amazing runs and pockets to fish than my life could contain. I can't wait to learn more of the rivers around here, it's just going to take some time.
