Mr Goodman,

Saw your post and I thought I might take a minute to offer a few thoughts on this subject. You are right, the OP rivers are busy, more so than I have EVER seen them. Part of it is indeed due to the closure of the catch and release season on the "S" rivers. However, part of it is due to folks like yourself who feel compelled to post pictures of their fish and name the names of those rivers on a nationally recognized internet chat site. I like fish porn as much as the next guy, but seriously, are you trying to make those WA rivers MORE crowded? Those are beautiful fish you found, I don't know how long you were in WA, but 10 fish on the swing is an epic winter steelhead trip for anyone. I simply do not understand why anyone who had such great fishing would tell the whole world about it, a few good friends or fishing buddies, sure, but the whole internet fishing community?!?! For what it's worth, I'm not writing this to bash on you, but you chose to write about how crowded those rivers are and so I thought it was worth taking the time to point out that you are enabling those crowds by posting this on a public forum. It will get more crowded and soon we will be calling it the "Trinity North". Thank you for that. A couple of dandy fish, by the way.
