I see Seattle is rated #6 in the top 10 best cities in the country to call home. So you may notice an uptick in fishing pressure at your favorite spots :eek:

Its funny - we had our first business meeting in Seattle last week in five or six years - with traffic and the down turn the city has made over the last decade or so the homeless and congestion - we find much better locations in Bellevue. We used to go downtown Seattle for Christmas shopping too - now we stay on the east-side of the lake. I love Seattle but driving around down there - seeing the trash and tents really leaves a hole in my hometown boy soul - such a bummer.

Evidently the constant rain up there doesn't put anyone off :D

(The great myth generated by those of us who live in Washington and Oregon to deter invaders is how much it rains -- not nearly as much as we tell people it does -- but in the case of Seattle, the rain myth must not be working.)

People are picking employment over weather I suppose.....

I live in Seattle....have for years...I never thought I'd want to leave but it's just not the same city anymore. I'm perfectly fine with change, but the development is out of hand and destroying the original character of the neighborhoods, there are homeless and their tents and trash everywhere, local politicians are flat out crazy and all the construction makes it hard to drive/navigate the city with any efficiency. Strongly considering cashing in on all the influx of people and heading for the hills.

Believe it or not, I actually came here for the weather. Spent first half of my life in SoCal and the latter in Chicago. Seattle is a perfect balance of the two imo. Fishing wasn't even on the radar when deciding to move here. Fishing happened because I moved here.
You sound like I did in 1985. Please check back with us in 2026. It took about 10 years of the wet dreary winters to finally change our opinion. Did you know that concrete is actually white? :D

Ah, the greater Seattle area. The government knows it has been, and will be for some years, one of the fastest growing cities in America. Improve public transit in a meaningful way? Nope. Build wider, more extensive roadways? Nope. Giant fuck-off tunnel that's going to be done way after schedule, way above budget, and only accommodating to west Seattle and downtown? You betcha!

People will have to come cramp up our spots because that's where they'll be parking their cars to walk 60 miles to work every day.
