Situk R. -May 1st - who can fill in the blanks?

Looks like a ditch with a lot of fish in it? What stream in Washington or BC would you compare in to in size and characteristics? Guage reading currently is 65.60 heighth and 195 cfs what turns them on and off? We have transsportation but not floating it can you walk lot of it or not? I have fished around Ketchican and most of the remote streams were very hard to fish. Pressure? What rods should I bring thinking the Single 8wt and the 7136 ? Finally paterns/presentation? Looks like a Snag fest to me and not much swing and fishing blind?

Welcome to the Yakutat Jungle

It's only about 7-8 miles long. We rented a pickup truck. Brushy as hell. Lots of root wads, sweepers & snags. Find your hole early and get there early. You need to put heat on the fish to steer them out of harms way so you want a rod that will handle a lot of pressure. An 8136 or 9140 or equivalent.

Take a lot of flies.

The 7136 might come home a 5 piece.
