Buenos Hatches Ese
I grew up down there too, and his description is spot on. I remember as a kid in the 90's, when there were fish in the river the number of people stacked top to bottom on those runs was a pretty pathetic sight to see. Anywhere there was access between Fife and Orting would get choked full of dudes. Add the nets and those fish never had a chance... I'm glad that my dad did not partake in that and we would go toss flies at trout instead. I swear the Puyallup River valley is the mouth-breathing capital of the northwest....
