    Have you considered Hazel or Eagle creek? A bit more difficult getting there but certainly very historical as well.

    The only knock I’ve heard on Hazel is that it can get crowded.

    I use the rule of 100.

    Add the stream temp to the ambient air temp. When it equals 100 or more, it should be comfortable to wet wade. Now having said that, this mainly applies to streams other...
