Hello All,
I posted this in the FlyBC forum but also wanted to post here to get some input.. I was gifted a sudden Kitchen Pass as the wife and little one will be out of town. With a whole weekend available, I decided to explore a new area as the bikini hatch will be in full force this weekend on the Yakima. Some peace and quiet on a beautiful river or lake seems ideal to me.

Some initial searching provided some interesting spots like Fernie area, but that is out of my range for a weekend trip. ( I prefer to stay withing a 4-5 hour drive of Seattle). The Skagit also looks tempting so I have put that on the list. I kindly ask for some suggestions. Below is what I am looking for.

Species - Trout
River preferred but open to Lakes
Fly Fishing, single hand - C&R preferred
Car or tent camping (I do have 4wheel drive but seeing this is a solo trip want to avoid anything more than gravel roads)
Range - 4-5 hours from Seattle

Thanks in advance for your assistance!

Regards,
Brian G.

Is there an event on the Yak this weekend? Was planning on floating the LC or above cle elum, but may hold off if there's another "mega-float" planned.

If I were you I would head to the Bend area. Fish the Metolius, Deschutes, Crooked, etc.

I do not know of an "mega-float" plans. I did several LC floats several weeks ago, and it did get crowded in the afternoon. But since I have the whole weekend wanted to spend more time on the water.

Penobscot had a good suggestion and it's an area I have not covered so I am packed up and ready to go explore!
