That's an awesome way to look at it. I personally consider my fishing info to be pretty damn valuable to me. I've spent so much money on gas, food, gear, etc... driven tens of thousands of miles, hiked hundreds of miles, made tens of thousands of casts, and done things I'm not proud of to get the info that I have... And so have my fishing buddies that I've received information from. To just go posting that info online for so many "guests" to see, who have done little to no work figuring it out for themselves, it just a waste to me. It seems that a lot of the enthusiastic location reports I've seen over time have been from guys who just found a new spot, and happened to get there on the right day without much of any previous experience and hardships of trying to figure that place out. I'll use one river as an example.. The Skykomish is as far from a secret river as you can get. It's big, it's long, and it gets a lot of pressure. But as far as angler success on steelhead, I think that the number of successful anglers out on this river might be some of the lowest in the state. It has a learning curve on it far beyond what many rivers in this state have. It's just plain TOUGH to figure out. I feel that after fishing it HARD for a few years, I have it at least somewhat figured out. I hooked fish more often than I didn't last winter. But the planets have to align for that river to be worth a trip, and I'm starting to figure out when and where that is. But I'll be damned if I'm going to give up that hard earned knowledge for the world to see.
