Anyone know how the fishing is on the Nooksack (sp?) in Washington state? I will have the chance to fish this river on Sat. and want to get an idea if the winter fish are in?

Good question; and for a 'good answer' hit Bob Ball's

Piscatorial Pursuits (damn, am I even close to the correct spelling on that??).

Great web site; and Northwest in focus. Log in, register, ask and be bowled over with current info.

Sounds like you're coming to Bellingham or somewhere else in the North Puget Sound area (or as we call it, the Fourth Corner).
The Nooksack, more than most winter steelhead rivers, prompts a fella to reach for a level-wind, shrimp-scented terminal tackle, and multiple Slinkies. It's fast and its normal color is Double Mocha Latte. Per this morning's stream flow data, it's 58% above normal, which means it'll have the color and consistency of crunchy peanut butter.
:mad:
Better alternatives for the fly angler are the Skagit above the Sauk, and the Vedder River near Chilliwack, B.C.

Thanks for the info.

Since it is a buisness trip, I probably won't have the time to drive to the Skagit, maybe next trip.
