You really can't go wrong with driving from Rockport to Darrington. The river is right alongside for most of the route. Do take the old road when the highy spilts, as it has more access to the river. And south, going upstream the road is right along for a good bit of the drive. It all depends if you want to fish bigger water and deeper glides, or smaller, faster water.

If you wanted to try for Dollies, I would fish the deep pools. Dollies hang out there, where they don't have to work so hard. And they like their water ice cold.

I would fish buggers, bunny leeches, and muddlers/sculpin patterns. And fish them on the bottom.

Generally the easiest time to catch dollies is with egg patterns when the salmon are spawning.

Good luck, and have fun!
