Welcome to Spey Pages from a relatively new member myself. You will find a great deal of knowledge and quite a few good souls hereabout. And with me living along the Skagit River in Washington state, we are almost neighbors.
Although my casting skills are lacking for various reasons, I once was fairly proficient and owing a lot to a couple guys I met on line, that were instrumental in getting this site up and running smoothly and another. Sinktip is one that is still here, and others might visit on occasion, though I don't know. Point being, its what you make of it, as they are more than willing to give pointers and the like to help the newbies.
Jet sleds/boats destroy redds in the spawning grounds with their turbulent jet wash, scouring the bottom and further burying some of the eggs while ejecting the rest into the stream flow to be eaten. To protect fish, these boats must be restricted from the spawning grounds.
