I know the reputation that the Samish has, but I might be up that way this weekend and the prospect of big fish in small water gets my tail wagging. As I understand it the area near the mouth is a total cluster f**k, but is the water further up river worth exploring? Do the kings make it beyond the weir at the hatchery, or is that the end of the line for them? I see that some of the creeks that flow into the river are also open to fishing. Are those any good? Not looking for any real advice or secret water here. A simple yes or no as to whether or not it is worth my time to explore will suffice.
