A couple hours on the Middle Fork Snoqualmie

By Troutnut on August 4th, 2019
I talked my wife into a quick trip to one of our home rivers on August 4th. It was the lowest I've ever fished it (around 235 CFS downstream at the gage, far less up by us), and that made for some easy wading. Some of the pools were practically still-water fishing. However, we hit a particularly good one at dusk where we caught dozens of fish without even having to move our feet. The big ones of the night were 7-8", but it's still fun.
