In the spirit of the NOAA survey....how about answering the following questions.

When you fish eastern Washington do you?

Only fish selective fishery streams and lakes

Primarily fish selective fisheries (75%), but fish regular regulation waters (25%)

Fish both equally

Primarily regular regulation waters (75%)

Regulation lakes only

Also do you live east or west of the Cascades?

How many days do you fish east of the Cascades (count partial days as full days)


So to start the survey......east of the Cascades, primarily regular regulation waters. Fish about 30 days a year. This was prior to retirement....hopefully this will go up now.

- primarily regulation waters
- live east of the cascades
- usually fish once or twice a week in the warm months, maybe once or twice a month in the winter, I've never actually fished west of the cascades.

Usually fish non-regulation waters
Fish about 120 days for steelhead each year
Fish about 100 days for trout
Fish about 50 days warmwater
Fish less than 20 days per year on lakes
Usually stick to small water

Geez, I was looking for someone to join me today....all my old fart friends were busy doing honey do projects.

Do you do anything besides fish?? Wow, I'm impressed.

Fish both equally (if it was just me, i'd fish the selective waters more, but with kids, I like to hit a wide variety)

West of the cascades, but only 45 mins from the pass.

5-10 days per year east of the cascades (too many good choices here between chrome salmon, steelhead, fresh, salt, lakes, etc to spend more than a few days on the dry side...)

About 80-100 days per year on the west side (only about 1/4 of those would be full days, the others are just a few hours in the morning a few times per week).
 
#7
Live east
Fish once a week as long as the line doesn't freeze to the guides
Rocky Ford, all the mountain streams that are open. Giving the select lakes a try!!!

I fish about 10-15 days a year east of the mountains, but live on the wet side.
Most of those days (>75%) are on the Yak (selective), the rest are on small mountain streams with regular regs.
