All to myself
« on: March 20, 2017, 09:51:59 AM »

Headed up to the SR on Saturday afternoon and had the upper end of the lower fly zone all to myself.  That was a first.  Only lasted about 30 minutes till a few others came by, but only saw 4 others the 3.5 hours I was there.  Unfortunately no takes though.  Was nice to get out and test out some of Christmas's cold weather fishing gifts.

I have never fished the SR this late. Mostly in November, and Twice in January. Both times, shit show at that location. So Weird to see it empty like that.

I've always wondered what the SR looked like during an off season time. Any idea on when the Salmon Shit show starts?

I thought they had a spring run of some sort, no?

I could very well be confusing this with Skamania steelies...

Yes, I think you are thinking steelhead.  This is form the Douglaston Run site:

Nice to see a report, Tyler, even with no fish.

How long of a drive is the SR for you?

Looks like a nice stretch to at least work the dust off of your gear.   This season can't start soon enough for me

an hour or so, hope to be up there more over the next couple weeks if the flows stay low enough.  Not interested in temps below freezing because I don't want to mess with freezing guides, and don't like fishing the river at flows over 1200.  I had been running pretty high for the last several weeks before the storm

March has been more painful than it usually is...dying to just stretch a line out.  I'm jealous.
