    Creeks, streams and beaver ponds don't open until June 1st. So I hope you are not fishing them yet.

    Justin Hi,
    I'm not well versed on the creeks in your area, beings I live north of Seattle. I've always wondered about the upper Green River, seems to me I read that it might have some small trout in it.
    Years ago the Huckleberry Creek north of the National Park used to be a favorite. There has been extensive logging in the area recently but it might still be a nice spot. I've hiked the Hucklleberry Creek from Sunrise to the park boundary. It's beautiful wilderness, and very difficult because they don't maintain the trail anymore. Still, the lower creek is accessable and probably worthwhile.
    Another creek I've had an interest in is the Clearwater River. It's entirely in privately owned land but they do issue permits.
    Look for creeks with good year round water supply, ones that don't dry up. Elevation is important too, as is remoteness, so that you're not fishing the same water as everybody else. Catch and release.
    And keep your good spots quiet or then won't be good for long. :THUMBSUP Flyfisher Frank
