A friend in the Seattle area has invited me up for some winter steelheading this coming weekend, 2-5 of April. We'd been talking the Skagit/Sauk, as the drive time is a little easier from his suburban paradise. However, his sources are saying the Olympic rivers are fishing better. Anyone care to comment on what's happening at either area? any one care to "crystal ball" the likely fishing conditions (water level/color/etc) and presence of fish for the coming weekend? coming up from central/eastern oregon, never fished either area, and my friend isn't very familiar with the opp's either... Apparently we couldn't secure a guide, which was plan A, for at least one day, so we maybe bushwackin' it for a weekend and hope to get lucky... Any help/info would be GREATLY appreciated!!
