Dont forget heavy tie down ropes and stakes for those tarps!

Bring your own roll of toilet paper too.

A little extra food will help support a community meal.

If everyone brought a few, or more, pieces of firewod along it would add up to a decent supply for the weekend.

Bring garbage bags and a yard rake and plan on taking your garbage home with you. Or at the very least we leave the place neat.

The Forks Thriftway market is a great place for supplies; deli, latte stand, full supermarket with beer and wine, great hardware dept, nice outdoors, camping and work clothing department, and a huge sporting goods and fishing department,(with the best price on Maxima!). :thumb:

Just picked up a nice bottle of scotch for warming the spirits, and hopefully celebrating a few tight lines.

Salmo_g and HT, if you don't mind, I'm going to update the front page with the spey rod info.

Yeah, no problem, James.

And if Salmo is bringing some chili and James can get a stove, I'll try to get a few dozen sausages. The reaction from that will measure on the Reichtar (sp?/)scale.

Dudes,

Hate to do this. My daughter has an awards dinner to attend on that Friday. Seems her little project went to district and she has been invited. She wants me there. I can not turn her down. Sorry.

Flufskie,

James and I will be there all week. If you came down anytime friday you could find us hangin' around. We are planning on doing a little fishing that morning but setting up is top priority that afternoon. Bring whatever rods you want. Between James and I we should have 4 or five rods ourselves out there.

Matt,

So you should go to the dinner with your daughter on Friday night. Maybe you could still get away to fish part of Saturday, Sunday, and Monday (holiday).

Flufiske37,

Leave the 6 wt home if you intend to fish for steelhead. The 6 wt. will be fine if you plan to fish for whitefish. Oxbow campground is right off Hwy 101 almost immediately north of the Hoh River bridge. It's a lot easier to find than a good spot to fish, and there are many of those.

For clarity's sake, which evening is the "big" dinner? Friday or Saturday? or both?

Sincerely,

Salmo g.

Sounds like you have your priorities straight Matt; you can go fishing .anytime. But your little girl will only be a little girl for a little while. And if you go to her evening awards dinner, instead of fishing for the day, you will both have that memory for a lifetime. :thumb:

I could do either or both, it would be best to do it when the most people can make it. If everyone is going to be there friday, it might be nice to have some grub so people don't have to worry about it while setting up tents, tarps, ect.

Saturday evening is probably the best for a big dinner, unless a bunch of guys are taking Friday off. I'm going to take Friday off, but I'm sure a lot of guys will roll in late Friday, after work or fishing somewhere for the day.

Can't wait for this, three solid days of chasing steel! Hopefully the weather will cooperate, it's looking pretty good at this point with the 10 day forcast for Forks!

Btw, is there a better place to look for weather / river conditions on the OP?

Bill
