I have planned all summer on making my way into the cascades for a few days. One thing or another has forced my trip later and later, and now that I have a weekend that I can do it (next weekend - Sept 24-26) we're into some pretty rainy weather. Forecast calls for rain every day, maybe snow at the elevations I have in mind. If it were you, would you pack up anyway and fish in the rain/sleet/snow, and hope for some sunny dry spells, or would you go to Eastern Washington and hike around in some of the Seep Lakes? I've fished the seep lakes, and enjoyed it, but I really want to spend some time in the mountains. I just don't want it to be miserable. Any thoughts? Any other ideas of places where I could go for about a 5-6 mile (one way) hike that might be drier, with fishing opportunities? I'm packing a raft. Teeg.
