This may come a little late for you, but the Skagit River up by Hope is a great fly fishing river. You won't find salmon up there, but you won't find many other fishermen up there right now either. I prefer going up to Sumallo Grove on hwy 3 (about 30km past Hope) and working down river from there. Others would tell you to take Silver Skagit road just before you reach hope and head up the road to the lower river. If you go to the lower river take lots of bug spray (I've n ever needed it on the upper river.) Beautiful river and wonderful solitude.
