8 river miles from Sultan down the Skykomish to the Snohomish. 23 miles from that point to the mouth of the Snohomish. This from: http://www.trails.com/activity.aspx....000301&lon=-122.175003&zoom=8&m=terrain&a=FP

If the fish you are talking about are coming from the salt water, they are entering from the puget sound. I'll bet there are some folks here that can tell you where they have been out there getting fat on quality sea food.

The first is road miles. River miles are a little different. But fish can swim a very long way is one days travel. The Snohomish isn't a very long river to where the "Sky" dumps in and a lot of the fish are dime bright when caught up around Reiter Ponds.

Didn't you just make another thread on this same thing? Your question doesn't make any sense either.

This is my 4th season fishing that system, and I still haven't quite figured it out yet. Put in your time, that's the only way you're going to get anywhere.

Jim, you are right OF COURSE, about fish covering a lot of water in a day. The numbers I provided were not road miles but paddling miles from a local paddling source site.

I have fished the skykomish, try to pay attention. If you can't speak the truth, try holding your tongue for a change. I probably have not fished the skykomish as much as your old ass, but I've made the trek over there for many fun filled days.

Hey Mumbles........................Take a bite out of my ass.

When did you ever make it over to the Skykomish. This is not the Skokomish. They might sound the same but they are NOT,

Skokomish: Union Washington, fished there, great place to run a human behavioral science study.
Skykomish: Sultan, Monroe Washington, fished there. Great place not to run into Old Man Jim.
You know that map you are always preaching about...and them little squiggly blue lines. Well, I've got a map too silly.
How is that tongue holding working out for you?
