Fishing the USA Part 1

Today we moved from Canada to the USA, this was duly accomplished. We drove through to Centralia in the hope of seeing Mount St Helens. As our timing seems to be perfect a nice blizzard was predicted for our return flight from Seattle to Los Angeles. So off we trundled in a vain hope of seeing the Mount. Luckily we new of a river to fish near by on the way back. The Cowlitz River was a nice salmon and trout stream. We did get a sneak peek at the peak and moved in the rain and wind to the fishing location. This time we were after salmon and we saw some nice steel head and cut throat trout. Liam managed two nice hits probably from steelhead and I managed a couple of touches, probably from a trout, Chris was still not getting any thing but hopefully we are getting closer. This fishing can become an expensive exercise with money needed for permits Canada $55 each for a week but this did not include keeping salmon or catching steelhead. The USA was only $16 for a single day. This does not include equipment or anything else. We are not sure if we will fish again this trip but we shall see! Hopefully you guys are doing well back in Oz.
