Fishing in the Cascades - we're in the mountains - no really I mean it - and the Taylor River Kicks my ass
The area kicks the fishes asses as well - they are not big, but they are tough competitors. It's seriously difficult place to make a living! This is not some gentle stream here - this is run off of snow pack over recently uplifted, glacially tumbled, and seismically jolted rock - water is literally running down steep drops in altitude.
I first started fly fishing in NY state sometime around 1985 ... mostly I fish in the Snoqualmie Forks -- very small trout but very fun to catch and release. I'm pretty much a home river person - that being said I've had a few fishing adventures. Currently I'm trying some new places on both sides of the Cascades.
