I hit the S. Fork Snoqualmie yesterday afternoon around 2:30. Hiked in to my first spot that always produces a bunch of little RB's and was totally skunked after fifteen minutes. The water is low I thought to myself and started upriver in search of more favorable water. I fished three or four more spots and pulled a a couple of Brookies out of two of them. Both about 7-8 inches but I was surprised to see 'em at all. That and a good cigar made for the best Thursday I could ask for.

Jay,

Thanks for the report.

It looks like the s Fork maybe waking up.

The fishing/wading was great, but catching was way down for the past 3 weeks for me.

Why do some people always say that trout have small mouths. That picture of that Brookie with it's mouth open, you could almost drive a truck in there.

Well, eastern brook are in the char family and I would agree, char can open BIG! Not sure they differ that much from trout, but I've never seen trout open like a char. Anyway, not splitting hairs just agreeing.

Great picture!

Nice!

I've always wanted to find brookies up there, but never had any luck. I think that is one "trout" species I've never caught.

Looks like a nice day. Unfortunately, I hooked a salmon this morning so I think I'm effed for the summer. I'm going to need to drag myself up to the mountains though soon.
