ill be floating the sky where is everyone else gonna be
I live down the road from the Sky, and I keep having the thought of how fun it'd be to get out this weekend and float it for the first time this summer. Then I remind myself of all the sleds and the parade of drift boats that will be out there this weekend... and weeding the flower beds at home sounds more appealing.
I fear this too, but phug it high bridge to sultan or reiter to sultan here I come
Reiter to Sultan? That's not a particularly easy float.
yah if I do that im going with my buddy with a clack who has done it. If I go by my lonesome its high bridge to sultan
How does your buddy fit between those rocks with balls that huge?
My question is, how would someone launch a clackacraft at Reiter?
Used to be a guy (maybe still is) who put his drift boat in at the cable hole on a regular basis.
I'll go to work this weekend and hit the water a couple days after the opener.
Be floating the sky.........................................3 days off
I think its cable hole to be honest, I remember him saying something about that fishing good during high water
I see guys occasionally float the stretch from Reiter (putting in well upstream) down to High Bridge, or all the way to Sultan. I certainly wouldn't do it. I definitely wouldn't do it tomorrow. Especially since almost every run between Reiter and High Bridge is going to have anglers since Reiter isn't actually open yet. You'd be low-holing left and right unless you got out. I can think of one or two runs that might be open in that stretch. But you're going to have to beat me to 'em.
How were the crowds? Wanted to go, but done that before and always regretted wasting the time. Been itching for SH fishing.
I went today. Did more hiking than fishing, River was to high to be productive. Spent 90 minutes maybe out of an 3 hour journey.
Didn't see or hear of anyone having any success on the stretch I attended. Lots of jets and bait fisherman...thus the hiking. Be several weeks before I attend the river again. Should have hit the salt beach instead.
ilu cable hole... 5 am walk in hundreds of times
Cable hole? Gees I hate being new.
I did a no fly rods trip in the drift boat today and hooked a king on a plug. I'd say fishermen outnumber the available fish by a large margin... Sooo, business as usual on the Sky, complete with substantial sled traffic.
It wasn't the sky, was down at my property this weekend. I could NOT believe how many boats were in the Nooch fishing steelhead. I've never seen that many boats first of June fishing it for steel. I mean NEVER! Usually you see more steel and anglers fishing it into late July/early August. But June 1???? Heard reports were on the radio about it. Funny, very few fish caught saturday, so virtually no boats today.
Went 1-2 today on swing ,took nice hen home. Brian. P. landed a slob of Buck @ 18 lbs that took the swung fly too...so ,good day!
Spotted 2 landed none
You mean "spooked 2"? I'm thinking of heading to that same spot sometime this week after work. With this warm weather I was expecting some higher flows, that crossing should be more manageable this time? We'll see.
