Thanksgiving weekend was traditionally the beginning of fishable numbers of winter steelhead on the Snoqualmie River. With lower smolt to adult survival rates, that's not necessarily something one can count on. However I heard there were three boats on the river last Saturday, so maybe they had a good reasons for being there.
Well, I made it over to Duvall today. Did not get down to Fall City.
River is high and dark as one might expect with the present weather patterns. I guess you could fish any given river at any given time, but for me, it is too high and too dark. That said, probably some very talented fishers might take the fish of a life time this week end.
My advice is to dress warm, dress dry and take the heavy fly box.
