    This is a page from the Tacoma News Tribune "Special Section" titled NW Summer. Aren't you glad you live in an "Angler's Paradise".... check out the photo of YOUR paradise according to the TNT! Whoopee.

    I've seen that and similar pictures. There is little that I would like more than to forever avoid that clusterf*^k! Mulitiple times I have encountered similar (but not quite as bad) fishing spots, and high tailed it out of there. I would rather fish a location with a .0001% chance of catching a fish than join in with that mess. Dealing with multitudes of skunkings has allowed me to really appreciate my surroundings.

    That would be the Puke in that pic.

    And the spit is far from a secret. There are much better spots on the KP. I guess being a friendly UPS guy has its privileges. ;)

    I can't click the link on my phone however I assume its a photo of some gnarly snagolicious gauntlet of death like the Puyallup or Nisqually at mounts road. First and last time I floated my pontoon through there. I was duckin they were chuckin.

    It looks like Fortson Hole on opening day of winter Steelheading season.

    Nothing wrong there. Looks similar to a length of the Alsea River during winter steelhead season -- and the very reason I no longer fish for winter steelhead.

    I'd say that looks more like a tackle dealer's paradise.
