Man I miss that river :( When they closed it, they pretty much shut down my only good freestone fishery within an hour away. I grew up fishing this magical place. Driving by now and drooling is just painful, knowing all that prime water is untouchable.
The HL Vairaint is still my favorite dry fly, though. That hasn't changed.

Why is it closed?
In the three years since, I still haven't got a solid answer. The most logical one I've heard was due to the re-introduction of salmon and steelhead in the "near" future.

Good thing the WDFW has a solid track record of restoring fisheries, otherwise the "closure is management" policy would be hard to take

While I generally would agree with you, from my understanding WDFW isn't the agency making the call on this closure.

I feel for pain TJ.
With this year's coho closures, I would have ventured east to fish it, but that is a no go as well.
I had some epic hopper and October caddis fishing there. What a great little stream!
