RE:tactics for river kings

Even with the high off color water last week there were big kings jumping all over the place in the lower Skagit river. We even considered taking the hooks off of a few plugs and doing some exploratory "tackle testing" and fish for knock-downs. But after a thorough review of the regs I was unsure if...

RE:Season openers....

I fished the Cascade Wednesday afternoon/evening. I traded off between float and eggs, a float and jig combo and spinners. I had action on all but focused on the float and eggs until I ran out of eggs. I then switched to a float/orange yarn/scent offering. On the float and jig I hooked and released ...

Not that we saw, but we heard talk of some wild fish caught and released.

OK, I’ve been looking forward to the June 1st opener on the Skagit for weeks. I even took the day off. Now the river is almost out of its banks, fast and muddy all the way up past Marblemount. Making matters worse we had to head south Sunday afternoon and when we drove over the Snohomish it (and I a...

OK, we’ll start taking fish pictures and figure out how to post them. Maybe even a few from our Memorial Day weekend shenanigans in Eastern Washington.

RE:Skagit Kings

Very good input and I agree, read the WDFW regulation pamphlet, check the web-site for emergency rules before you go and keep a copy of the regulation pamphlet in your gear. Regarding the June 1st “boots”, there will be quite a few bright fish also, I have caught (and released when required) bright ...

RE:Skagit Kings

Yes, but only two can be adults and they have to be clipped. Also remember that this fishery is under different regulations than the July 9th opener for wild kings. As always, check the WDFW website frequently for emergency rules that may supersede the pamphlet publication.

RE:time to do some castin

Effective a couple weeks ago our household is less one income also. I have to say it's been a blessing in disguise though. Since I work from home, now we get to hang all day together, have lunch together, sneak out and catch a few trout together and then today she even mowed the lawn! The financial ...

RE:Skagit Kings

I'm taking Monday the 1st off and will be pounding the river all day. The area that will open on the first is from the Hwy 530 Bridge in Rockport to the Cascade River. It will be busy but as long as we don't get any big rain before the first, there will be a lot of fishable water available. Remember...

RE:Skagit Kings

Hey, this fishery is in my back yard and I plan to need additional salmon punch cards. There are some excellent gravel bars but I don't know how to access them from terra-firma. I will usually beach the boat to fish them. Overall the lower Skagit is a boat show. There are a ton of kings jumping in t...

RE:Kayak Fish Finder help

Try picking up the appropriate portable suction cup mount and then assembling it upside-down. Once assembled, lay it out flat and then stick it to the bottom of the yak. I used to have a kayak based guide service and had quite a number of kayaks. The technique noted above worked great for the client...

I am looking for a custom boat cover manufacturer/canvas shop in the north end. Our aluminum skiff is an odd shape and catalogue boat covers are not available. Ideally we are looking for storage/towing cover. Please provide contact information and maybe a brief statement addressing your experience (...

RE:Password Changes and Blog Editing

It worked and thank you. I did have to make the revisions a couple times. It appears that after completing the revisions you have to move the curser to the end of the document and press enter before you hit the save button...learning curve stuff and for me the curve is always a long one.

Password Changes and Blog Editing

Two short questions: 1) How do I change my log-in pasword? 2) Is it possible to edit a blog post? I know there is an "Edit" button but after trying from two differnt computers it doesn't seem to be functional.
