The Upper Tucannon used to be a fav place to fish, but it is no more. The river has been regulated to death. Rather than patrol the area, enforce the selective fishery rules, & punish the bait dunkers & poachers, the authorities found it easier to spank everyone & just close-off more & more of the river to fishing. Good luck on your quest, Steve. My Son recently moved to Florida, so just my Daughter remains here; when I retired, I contemplated returning back home to Montana, but I like the weather here (although I could do with less wind) and there's plenty of good fishing in the vicinity year-'round. Montana haunts are only 6-1/2 hours away and a guy doesn't have to shovel sunshine here, plus I'm close to excellent medical care, should that become necessary someday.
