    As I'm reading various threads about people's summer trip plans and questions about other interesting things for family along the way this site came to mind. http://www.onlyinyourstate.com/states/washington/ I subscribe to a few states in our area and always enjoy the articles.

    Hey folks! I'm in search of a new stillwater float, preferably a pontoon or raft. I'd like to see what others may have available for sale! Please feel free to respond to the thread here directly, or shoot me a direct message. Cheers! Conner

    Hey guys. I hope to be doing a road trip from Montana to the area around Riffle lake in May. This is more of a hang gliding than a fishing trip, but would love to fish some if the flying weather is not good. I will be camping and or staying near Morton or Glenoma. I see there is some flowing...

    What a surprise. Mostly, we wanted to go for a walk in the woods by the river. We wondered, Should we string up a rod? Might as well, we decided. Not five minutes into casting into a deep, slow glide, my indicator dipped and I set into what felt like a decent fish. I ended up landing what is by...

    Please request that your senators after taking this bold step, put pressure on the BC government to do the same. Escaped diseased Atlantics do not recognize the border between us. The last thing our elected politicians want to do is listen to the public so our voice isn't being heard. Maybe a...

    An awkward pose by a clumsy lake fisherman trying to look cool with his big stocker: Took a #10 bead head bunny leech on an intermediate line. There are more there. One pod that ambled by my pontoon numbered 18 fish. Kid you not.... 18 7# rainbows... Two-three feet down, just slowly cruising by...

    FYI Testing for the Fish Washington app has been completed and it is now available from the Google Play Store and Apple's App Store. At the moment it is a soft launch...no press release or advertising. That will come later. If you were an app tester, you will want to uninstall and delete...

    Has anyone fished for coastal cutthroat starting from the launch on Mercer Island under the East Channel Bridge? I fish trolling flies from a pontoon with an electric motor so my speed and the distance I can go is pretty limited. Just wondering if that area is likely to yield anything. Denisr

    I'm working on putting together a framed set of flies for my uncle for Christmas. He lives in Kentucky and mostly fishes Appalachian streams near his cabin in North Carolina and a few rivers near my cousin's place in New York. In other words, he's an east-coaster when it comes to fishing. I'm...

    Many of the enlightened minds on this forum seem to be interested in wolf issues whenever such a thread pops up, so I thought I would throw this out there for some light reading. http://www.hcn.org/articles/opinion-rural-communities-can-coexist-with-wolves-heres-how/ The return of the wolf is...

    Earlier this evening, I was standing on a dock near 520 enjoying some fresh air. About 30 yards in front of me I see a fish jump. I watched for about 5 minutes and saw a couple more. I Couldn't get a positive id, but I pretty sure this wasn't any bass. Definitely salmonid. Any idea what it...

    I am trying to learn everything I can about western WA stillwater aquatic food chain plus when the bugs in the food change hatch. Are there any hatch charts and/or books; videos specificly for western WA?

    From High Country News: "In late August, a range rider found a calf with bite wounds and lacerations dead on public grazing lands in Ferry County, Washington. The Sherman wolf pack was at it again. The newly-formed pack had already taken three other livestock animals over the last 10 months...

    After spending ten years in interior Alaska where hatches are scarce and the grayling will hit almost anything, I moved to Washington this May (Seattle area) and have started getting back into photographing trout stream insects. Here are some of the hatches I've run across in the few evenings...

    Hey Everyone, I am planning my first visit to to see a buddy of mine who lives around Winthrop. I was wondering what the river access laws in Washington are. I was looking at the Chewuch and Methow rivers around Winthrop on google maps and it looks like some of the river banks have homes on...
