Last day on the Skykomish

Wondering if anyone had any luck on the last day swinging on the Sky. It’s been a poor return with closures, but water was in great shape Saturday! None for me, but still had a wonderful time!

For those willing to share, what setup were you fishing, line, fly, etc.

Hopefully the river sees some improvement next year, but thankfully I’m headed to the OP in a couple of weeks!

Cheers - Coleton

Cheers,

Only a few runs on the upper river I like to walk into and the two main ones arenít reachable above 6.5í so I stayed home.

I was curious how it fishes for sea run cuts and summer steelhead.

Summer runs are but a shell of what used to be a great run. Cuts can be good in the fall, but other rivers near by have better populations.

I fished all day Friday, water was indeed primetime. No fish.

Next year's run should be better, but with WFCs latest win, I'm not counting on much of a comeback long-term.
