  • Famous rainbow trout river.
  • All catch and release except Ross Lake on USA border is catch and keep.

20190725-26 John Pierce, Dave McLean and Wingkee fish for two days, camp at BC Ross Lake Camp Campground. Almost no water in Ross Lake as US Dam under renovation. Drove N and fished Skagit River just upstream of pedestrian suspension bridge where Dave and Wingkee caught trout last year using Thumper fly, nothing. Fished downstream of suspension bridge where Wingkee landed 4 on Thumper, nothing. Day 2 fished mouth of Skagit across from campsite, no bites. Afternoon drive N to 1st daycamp parking. Upstream John fishing sinking tip catch and released one 12". Drive N Park at Skyline II Trailhead, accessed Skagit down trail 20' NW of parking lot.
