Also, the last four times I have been out on both the Skykomish, and Stilly, I have seen a lot of garbage. I highly suggest bringing with you a grocery bag and not only pack your garbage out but others as well. I know we should not have to do it but it is our responsibility. So coming from a new angler myself, I can see that there really is a bigger picture than you think when you are getting into this. I saw a few kids throwing away beer cans by burying them under the sand. I walked up to them with a smile and offered to grab there trash for them, and also handed them a spare trash bag too. After I gave them there own I saw them an hour later picking up a few things on there own.
