Tough luck.
Upper Snoqualmie (sp?) river right below the HUGE falls; toss in Tokel (sp?) creek that enters the river right below the falls. If the water's high, fish the creek. VERY HEAVY FLIES (chartreuse and white); almost a Tenkara fishing situation as this thing is only a few feet wide. Fish will be right at your feet. Here the 1hander is what you need.

At high water the fish will pull out of the main river and nose up into the creek. In the high flow situation, with a 6wt, you are waaaaaay under-gunned!

Been years since I've been in the area so someone feel free!
