    Are there any decent rivers for trout along the I-90 corridor? I've been looking at Raging River and the Snoqualmie South Fork.

    Yes there are. I'd start with the South Fork or Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie. Or head east and try the Yakima.

    This time of the year, the Raging is really skinny. Last time I saw it
    a body could spit across it. That said, after the rain last night, I am
    not sure.

    Hi Dan,

    I have fished the S Fork Snoqualmie a lot this year. It has fished well and we may have a few weeks of decent fishing left. August is usually the best month for that river. If you can be on the river during a hot, 80 degree day, fishing will generally be good in the late afternoon thru evening. Dry fly, size 16 or 18 gets it done. Explore and have fun.

    Well you can continue on and end up in Montana and fish the St Regis and the Clark Fork.

    The Raging has a few resident fish, but for the most part you'll hook juvenile steelhead. I'd leave it alone and opt for the N Fork, Middle Fork and S Fork Snoqualmie. There, above the barrier falls that is Snoqualmie Falls, you'll find nothing but resident fish.
