More than a dozen lake trips, and the new Water Master is crying to get out on some moving water. River levels could be relatively tame, and I should have more than a few days of opportunity between September 7th and the 17th. Having a hard time figuring out the shuttle thing without a regular fishing buddy, although I have an informal offer from a forum member regarding the Yak sometime in September. I have floated most of them once or twice, but not on the oars. What should it be: the Methow, Yakima, Skykomish, or Upper Skagit? I guess the timing is the biggest driver for both the fishing and ease of the float. My first thought is Rainbows and Cutbows on the mid-stretch of the Methow, perhaps stay a night or two between Winthrop and Twisp. I am under the impression there are not the tweekers of the Sky and Skagit infamy. I wish my mind didn't consider such things. I would appreciate your thoughts.
