Re: Ice off lakes near Tonasket/Aeneas Valley?

Just talked with some of my friends over from Omak and they said there was still ice on the Columbia in places on their way over, so most likely still some ice in Aeneas valley. NWflycaster, Aeneas lake (up North Pine Creek rd) is on the opposite side of the Okanogan valley from Aeneas valley so opp...

Re: Drive-up lake with a view of Mt. Rainier

Not from the correct side, but one of the most iconic and often photographed (especially with reflection) is from Tipsoo lake, right at the pass summit on 410. It is nice in that you are looking across to Rainier. No dock or anything but a short, easy trail around it.

Re: New rules for sport salmon fishing - but no details

Seattle Times had a breakdown, looks like they are allocating more to the sport fisher, depending on Oregon approval. Still somewhat vague but looks to favor sport and reduce commercial impacts. http://www.seattletimes.com/sports/columbia-river-salmon-fishing-reform-clears-one-hurdle-and-oregon-deci...

Re: Bottom fishing closes off the coast

They came to their senses and opened for surfperch, and clarified that 2-1 and 2-2 are included in bottom fishing closure. Nice that something positive came out from WDFW, thanks to whomever pushed the issue or asked for clarification! WDFW FISHING RULE CHANGE Washington Department of Fish and Wildl...

Re: New the Area, Need some

Cowlitz might be in range, would probably offer better fishing than they Sky anyway, or head towards the coast, Chehalis, Wynochee, Satsop, etc. Probably pushing your travel limits, but they should offer decent fishing options.

Re: Removing water stains on a white hull

Stay away from Hydrofluoric acid, it is very toxic and will dissolve glass among other things, including eating through your skin and bones. Oxalic acid would is an organic bleaching acid (not hydrochloric or sulfuric), using a dilute solution (3-10%) of that would be my choice of the vinegar does n...

Try River Bend Jigs, they can ship you frozen ones, not sure of availability.

Re: Snohomish river?

That is a pay area, you have to get a key somehow to get through the gate. There is a WDFW public access just up the road on the Short School rd. but you are kind of on the bank on the river bend. There is a trail that goes further down that I did not explore.

I would not think so since no one is checking your documents, but here is the Seattle times article, you might call Van Riper's. They do mention something about some other type of pass. http://www.seattletimes.com/life/outdoors/creative-anglers-head-to-canadian-waters-for-coho/" onclick="window.open...

Re: Westport Jetty Help!

They should have them at the bait dock by all the fishing charter boats. At least that is where the captain got them when I went out on a charter a few years ago.

Re: Used boat choices/questions

I wont be moving the boat anytime real soon so I can ponder my trailer decisions and keep my eyes out for the right one. I also saw that most other vessels similar to this had a double axle. I kind of thought this one did too, but not when we showed up, but I was looking at so many I may have just c...

I will see how rusty and crusty that connection is, still might need brakes, but a bigger truck might get me to pass the RCW requirements.

Thanks for all the tips, I will look into both types of ply and make a decision. It is a 1969 so its not like I need it to be good forever, but I hate doing any type of substandard work, so I will balance cost with quality.

Floors are coming up this week/weekend and getting replaced. What type of resin is recommended for coating that? If I am coating it should I just go with exterior instead of marine grade? Something that a good anti-skid will stick to. I was looking at moving the winch forward, but was not sure about...
