Just got back from the Upper Skagit (Sumallo Grove area). The river was higha nd fast. The fish have plenty of water to hold in ad are probably scattered throughout the system right now. Wading and fishing opportunities were severely hampered by the height and speed of the water. In 5 hours I didn't see a single fish rise and touched none. I talked to 8 or 9 anglers and only met one who caught a fish, and he only hooked one. It was not the river I hoped it would be, but it was the one I expected it would be. Hope someone has had better luck than I did and will report on it. Still a great day, sunny and calm weather, wading in water, waving a stick.
