Thumbs up Need more Washington and Oregon members here

Surely, there must be some more Oregon and Washington fishermen out there. It would be nice to get this area kicked up a notch.

Well, I'm local to that area but I only check this once a week, or so, as there isn't too much activity. Most are on I-whine, I guess.

Sorry for the delay. I'm down here in Woodland WA. About 20 miles north of Vancouver.

How did you do on the winter steelhead?

First post for me on this site. I'm in the Bremerton area, getting ready for Halibut.

Winter fishing for me was almost non existent this year. I'm trying to build a cabin and it takes up plenty of weekends and spare time. The next trip will be bottom fishing and then halibut out in the straights. I might try out at the potholes here pretty quick and then banks lake also since they are day trips from the house.

You?

I fish sekiu every year for Halibut and salmon. With the 3 day a week Halibut fishery and gas prices
I'll stay home for the flatty season this year and save up to fish salmon in Sept.
I like to stay for at least 2-3 weeks but will have to see what this year looks like.
I want to be casting the Spey rod on the Clearwater starting mid Sept.
Spend allot of time with a fly rod in the drift boat over in Montana.
Not enough time to do it all.

Hence the name.

Getting ready for the Halibut season in May. But a quick trip to Cabo for some rooster/surf fishing.

Fished the Puget Sound region as a kid, and fell in love with the Hood Canal area. Especially crabbing around Dewatto Bay. Springer fishing on the Columbia has been rough, but time for the raft and the small tributaries.

Love for the Lake Washington Sockeye to come around because 2006 was a good year!

Tight Lines!

Default Another Washingtonian...

Getting ready to ambush the salmon and albacore off the Columbia River Bar. Been doing the salmon for 40+ years (although I couldn't possibly be THAT old... ), and now have a boat that will do the albacore trips. See you out there ???

Thanks Mark. I rescued her from the sunshine in San Diego a couple of years ago. It was a 35 footer there --- it's shrunk 5 feet in the Washington rain !!! I've spent the winter / spring upgrading the electronics, replacing switches and gauges, adding gear, etc. Will be ready when the fish are. Hope to see you out there. I'll be moored at Ilwaco for the Summer / Fall..

Hey- Mount Vernon checking in.
Been chasing Ling, 'Butt's and Shrimp last few trips. No good butt stories but getting some lings and pots full of shrimp.

I just joined today so I'll be around once in a while.

I am in Port Angeles. Halibut Derby this weekend. Nope, not fishing, I am staying home with the gate locked!! Between the Juan de Fuca Festival, the Arts & Action craft fairs, and the derby, the town is full of traffic, people, boats & rigs. Last weekend the line up of trucks/trailers at the boat ramps was over 1/4 mile in both directions, and it was not derby weekend!!

I can see a couple of good halibut drops from the driveway. Too bad, Sunday is the last day of the season.

PS, a 178, a 120 and several over 75 pounds have been caught here in the past few days.

I love it! I-Whine is a good name for "the other NW site", I look at it each day. Think I will serve up crackers and cheese over there.

It would be nice to see a Pacific Northwest forum. Having one for the entire west coast stops people from taking it seriously.

P.S. Don't forget to support local events like the WTC and OTC !

I agree re a forum for Cally and one for the PNW. Allot of water covered on one site. Most northwesterners are on ifish.net salty dogs. I have been using this site since I got an off shore boat, but mostly electronics and general forum.
