Re: Washington steelhead
What water did you fish? I grew up in Longview, WA, fishing the Kalama, Cowlitz and other smaller rivers and creeks near there. One of the first memories I have involving the SW WA fishery is planting steelhead in the South Fork of the Toutle with the local Sportsmans Club 2-3 years after the eruption. It was that trip that eventually got me into fly fishing and tying flies.
I've been in TN for 12 years now, but it is always good to get a fishing report from back there.
