Work has sent me all over the place the past few weeks. Last weekend was Yakima. I stopped by Red's and they showed me the basics of nymphing and off I went. Before this weekend, the only fish I caught on the fly were salmon and flounders. 12 nice rainbows on Saturday and a couple on Sunday. This was my first time fishing fresh water and I had a blast. I picked up a fly rod for the first time this year and have only spent my time fishing the salt from N. Seattle to Everett. I almost never get down to Olympia or Aberdeen and I will have all day Saturday (except 6am - 8am for work) free. I'm looking for some advice on waters that are fun to fish without the need for a float tube/boat/pontoon. I'm not looking for a specific bend in a river or anything like that. For Yakima, this was pretty easy but I'm a bit overwhelmed with all the options in the area and have a feeling if I just go to the Chehalis or Satsop I'm going to be combat fishing and dodging gear all day. I may just drive around the Sound and target SRC's for the day but it was a blast learning nymphing and I'd love to learn something new. Any pointers on bodies of water in the area that are open and decent for a beginner? Not looking for any "honey holes" or secret spots. Just want to do some fishing, try out a new area, and enjoy a relaxing day. Feel free to PM me if you don't want to comment here or if I am breaking a cardinal sin by even asking. Here is one my first rainbows from Yakima for your enjoyment.
