Default Moving to Seattle.

So I am making the move from sunny, beautiful, troutful, Colorado to Seattle. Anyone have tips or live in Seattle and want to show a small stream guy around?

You will want to go see the guys at Creekside Angling Co. in Issaqua. They will hook you up.

+1 to what he said.

Lived/worked there for 30 some years, actually moved to Nor-Cal in 1984. Few trips back over the years and it is/was darned interesting to see (what is now) "405" as a two lane road to a full on free for all freeway.

Another Fora to ask your question, as many of the Folks live in the immediate area is the 'SpeyPages.'

Rory: I have never fished there, but it is a beautiful area, you should find some good fishing there with a little scouting and asking around. Make sure you have good raingear!

The Pacific NW is an awesome place to live. I am a bit biased though. Seattle is a great town, though a bit crowded. Lots of heavy traffic all the time. You will be over whelmed with fishing opportunities.

Thanks everyone! I have invested in some good rain gear. I was there a couple of years ago and got into some salmon in the Campbell River on Vancouver Island as well as great cutthroat in Western Idaho. Maybe it is time to get a spey rod as well?!

You don't have a 2-hander yet?

You need to join us 'On the Dark Side.'
