Thanks for the welcome. I just moved to the Pacific NW from the Rockies. Initial impressions are that the trout fishing isn't as good as the Rockies but there are more warm water species to target. Have done most of my two handed fishing in AK.
Welcome to Spey Pages from a new member and resident of the fine PNW! In a true sense, the fisheries on the west side of the Cascades are just different from the Rockies, what with our relatively constant rain throughout the year leaching the soil and washing the minerals and nutrients to the salt, our trout fishery cannot compare. Steelhead being the exception. We do have some fine lake fishing for trout and certain lakes for the warm water species. East of the Cascades would be closer to the Rockies, with a more typical western trout fishery, replete with rattlesnakes, and a good abundance of bass, walleye and such.
In any case, welcome aboard. Kick your shoes off and stay awhile.
