    I will be out on the OP this weekend fishing the Hoh through Tuesday. Green Outcast raft and a white Subaru. If anyone wants to share a beer or do some fishing don't be afraid to say hello.

    Hopefully that rain will blow out the blockages! I know, wishful thinking...but that's what steelheaders do best.

    We need that rain so f-ing bad. I was on the Hoh yesterday. Every asshat guide in the state of WA is on that river right now because they can't get their POS, military-spec diamond-plate-metal super-tanker drift boats down any other river right now. I was just appalled at the traffic, and the fact that out of 25 or so boats, we might have been the only recreational fishermen out there. What a waste of of vacation day. I might normally fear that bump of water but things are so low that I think you'll have some options this weekend, and I think there are a lot of fish out there in the Ocean just waiting to rush the systems.

    I'll be over that way next week mid-week. Open seat or two available.

    Sorry for the hijack.

    Bryce, my buddies and I were camped right across from you. Pretty slow weekend for us (and most others based on the fish checker's report), hope you found some.

    Best advice I can say is read the articile in the recent Drake by Rose...

    That was a good read and I found it so true of the OP

    Bryce and Mossyback,

    How it go? Which rivers did you fish and did you float? How was the wind/rain? Crowded?

    PM if you feel the need to,

    And thanks in advance,
    TR

    I'm about sick of that Mag whoring on the coast. It's run a number of features about the area in the last several issues, and all it's gonna do is raise awareness to the Montana trout fag contingent. Get ready for more new F350 "ranch edition" giant trucks!

    Judging by the fact that there are 20+ rigs at every popular takeout I don't think you have anything to worry. Pretty sure all those rivers have made the Oprahs THINGS I LOVE list for a couple years running. It's especially awesome to see that most of the guys are fishing eggs under a bobber, you know, for the catch and release wild fish.
