One of the first packs in the state is the one in the Methow. After several years, the pack is huge and increasingly dangerous. They pretty much stay in the hills in the summer, but come fall, they decend into the valley. They have stalked fishermen and the reports of attacks and maulings probably have been hushed by the local tourism boards as no one has heard them. But they are dangeous! I wouldn't even think about sleeping in a tent these days! There have been reports of huge packs even stallking rafts & pontoons and pouncing on them as they landed or floated under a high bank! I've been packing a big piece during the last few steelhead seasons and now, we always fish in a group so someone can stand guard. The rumor is that this fall, it will be really bad as the pack has grown and gotten increasinly bold and deadly. I don't think there have been any reports of wolf packs on the Klickitat or even Grande Ronde so fishing there might be the wisest option this fall. I mean, I love steelheading as much as anyone, but that huge, dangerous man-eating Methow pack is outta control and not worth the risk any more! Plus, although he didn't say it so as not to cause mass panic but those pics Flyborg posted are from the Methow. Those unicorns are collaborating with the wolves. The wolves will surround you and then the unicorns will move in and you'll soon be begging the wolves to just finish you off quickly! Yep, you probably should just head to the Klickitat this year. Did I mention the cougar Mumbles and I saw on the opposite bank last fall in Twisp broad daylight?! Seriously, right Ed? It's just too damn dangerous anymore..does anyone have a Wii steelheading or trout fishing game, LOL?
