South Fork Toutle Outing Report
Vance and Jeff put on a good show. A good dozen plus members enjoyed a little morning coffee to kick off the S Fork Toutle outing. After a warm-up of both beverage and fellowship everyone scattered around the river in search of the steel.
From my perspective the S Fork was in excellent shape, water pretty clear with just a bit of color. I was able to wade across many of the channels in the mile or so above the railroad bridge. Weather was cooperative as well with the rain holding off until everyone was on the highway home.
A warm pot of chili along with assortment of condiments and beverages welcomed the group shortly after noon while we shared stream reports and general BS. Some excellent homemade sausages were a real treat.
In keeping with the theme of the year, a curious lack of all anadromous fish returns, this year’s outing was mighty lean on action despite the excellent fishing. Fortunately one fish was tagged thus saving our collective honor and allowing us to continue to wear pants.
