I was introduced to the wonderful sport of floatfishing the main Nooksack River (from Lynden downstream) in the autumns, by the late Dick Van Demark. Mid-September into early November was the height of the season. The best flies were summer steelhead patterns, slightly scaled down to No. 8's. Slow water, backchannels and slough mouths were the most productive. The "harvest trout" seemed to be in pods; when one was caught, we kept fishing there until no more were caught. We caught and released beautiful fish to 19 inches or so.
That was in the 1970's. In those days, searun devotees hoped to catch one four-pounder in a lifetime.
