Never been to Minter, and I've only fished the Killscene thrice! I fished upstream for trout once in the Skok, but avoid the salmon fishing there. I have acquaintances who fish the lower Skok, though, and they keep me informed. I probably should go fish the Skok for Kings with a local dude I know who likes to fish there, but I don't like crowded rivers. I don't mind gear fishing for hatchery fish though, as long as I can avoid the mob scenes. Its a good way to catch some food and have a good time. I prefer casting spinners and spoons over drifting corkies, though. I have some spots that are decent for fly fishing for Coho and Chums, but I usually don't fly fish the hatchery runs in the popular water below hatcheries. I know of some lesser know snagging spots where I could take the camera toting eco tourists and get 'em freaked out, and probably freak out the snaggers at the same time. The flossers out here are so good that they would hardly be noticeable. The really primo snagger tour would take place at night, and we'd have to sneak up on them. Blind 'em with camera flash, and then get out quick before their eyesight recovered and they started shooting. Back up on "jackhole crik," for example. You won't find a creek of that name on any map, though. (I gave it that nickname because an early settler named John Hole homesteaded the land near the river mouth in the area).
