South Fork Stillaguamish River

Post by BigTree/LittleTree » Sun Sep 01, 2019 8:17 pm

Howdy all! Looking for advice. My son had to move up with his mom near granite falls on the south fork of the stillaguamish river. I live down by Portland, Oregon. Basically, when I'm able to go visit him we'd like to spend time fishing the river close to where he lives now. I know nothing about this river at all so any help on helping a father/son looking to spend quality time on the river would be greatly appreciated! I know this page says North fork but I figured it was somewhere to start! Thanks in advance!
