Washington Chrome?

I'm headed to Washington in a few days to hit the Sky and Stilly for a few days before taking a class in Arlington. Any word on recent conditions, fresh runs or advice for a first time west coast steelheader?

I'm packing a 1307 Scott LS2, Winston B2X 1107 for salmon/steel and a 905 Sage XP for SRC's in the evenings after the class. I am planning on fishing on the surface during low light hours and doing some light sink tipping during the day. Any advice on techniques, tackle and even locations would be a big help!

Your tackle sounds about perfect. The rivers (the North Fork of the Stillaguamish is the summer steelhead icon, although the number of steelhead actually in the river may remind you of a great resort hotel between seasons) and the Skykomish are close to highways, easy to find on a road map. Look for cars and turnouts. Water levels and clarity are excellent now.
