    Sure just wait at the corner of your street with all your gear, and we usually wear our waders to the river so have them on.

    looks like Skagit and Sauk will be closed after Feb 16. Better doublecheck the emergency closure postings at DFW, there's been a wave of closures.

    but the good news is they opened the Cowlitz for 4 days of smelt fishing...JEEZ.

    Do you use a long belly line for those smelt or can a guy get by with a Skagit line?

    I got a 15'4" 9/10. Sure don't want to be out gunned. Tried to sell it without success. Glad I didn't now.

    with a Carron line.

    Close it up! We pounded the river today for 12 hours and no takers. Ran into some guides and other guys with the same story.
