    Weekend of March 3 & 4, I will be limited to beach fishing from Carkeek Park north to Everett. What are the odds of getting more action than the much needed double-haul practice?

    Do any of the beaches from Kayak Point north to Deception Pass offer any decent fly fishing? I'm new to Washington and just starting to learn to fly fish with an 8w. I'm not looking for hot spots just areas to practice with the possibility of catching a fish.

    Yesterday I had a double digit day ebb fishing for SRC that were schooling up. I was anchored and standing in the Kayak and was able to refine some techniques. Specifically the set. In this circumstance you could often see 2-3 cutts chasing the fly, one might hit it, and in general the hit...

    I broke a guide on my XP 697-4 while fishing tonight. I don't build rods, but I was hoping to find a member in North Seattle that could repair this for me. I'd prefer not to have it out of action for very long, which is why I'd rather go this route then ship it to Sage. This rod has been...

    I have had limited success on my favorite carp waters the past month or so. From where I park, the hike to the lake is a quarter mile or so. Nine times out of ten I wade north from the lakeside starting point. Habit, I guess. Usually I find fish but after the last four outings and only one...

    I fished it today, and I was the only one I saw, except for a tourist rookie from Colorado. Overcast sky, clear 59 degree water. Where is everybody? No steelhead, except for various nine inch pre-migrants assulting my **** Muddler.

    I will be in Spokane in a couple of weeks to visit with my wife's family and have been granted a day to get away and fish. I Want to fish the North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene, but am clueless on routes to take to decent water, and what sections (not honey holes, unless volunteered) to fish...

    I have been thinking about checking out the North fork of the Snoqualmie . I usually hit up the south fork but thought I would try something different. I see that the land around the river is almost all timber company land. Is there any place I can park and Hike in Etc... Im not looking for...

    I'll be up in Anacortes for a wedding this weekend and plan to fish some beaches in the area on Saturday morning. I've spent a lot of time in the South Sound, but never fished north of Carkeek Park. Are there any patterns that work better for the North Sound this time of year? Thanks in advance...

    Stopped by tonight and found thousands of dead anchovy covering the beaches of North Bay. The weather last week must have caused a toxic algal bloom.

    Hey folks just looking for some advice on if there is any dry fly river fishing to be had in North West Washington. I live in Vancouver B.C and was hoping to both explore Washington a little and also get some dry fly or nymph fishing done for resident river trout. The closest resident river...

    Last Friday I was outside with a friend when I heard the sound of a whale blowing. I said whale and we hurried down to the beach. We could see something about 100 yards out coming towards shore. A second later the water explodes with a giant mouth opens and bait fish (chum fry) twinkling in the...

    Finally the wind guy decided to turn it down a couple notches for an afternoon, and naturally I had to get out and enjoy this small, small sliver of sunlight literally between two massive rain clouds. I saw no fry moving and very few fish showing at the beach, but good tidal movement, so I felt...

    Nice waterproof fleece lined hooded parka by north face. Size XL. Too big for me these days, as I've been running leaner. Fleece liner zips out and you can just wear the shell if you desire. Black/grey color. No ciggie smoke or pet concerns. I realized as I was taking the pictures, one of the...

    I always read here~ "Spend gas and time and find the beaches that you can access on foot and that hold fish........" I did that today. I checked 9 beaches on a small area of the north sound. 1/4 tank of gas and 7 hours later this is what I found; one site posted no fishing by the local...

    The great fishing for hatchery silvers appears to have died off at a popular beach near tacoma. No fish and no fishermen on that beach for the past couple of weekends during low light and good tital movement. Where have they gone? Deeper? Farther north like Seattle or Everett? No need to...

    http://wdfw.wa.gov/news/dec2916a/ Interesting it looks more like the the regs north of the border but we have to go barbless single hook, I don`t understand why the limit of 2 fish has to be over 18 inches We have a 2 fish limit but only one can be over 50cm 20 inches if you want you can keep a...
