January is Steelhead fishing on the Dungeness River. Less than 2 miles from our home—a beautiful rushing river with deep pools waiting for resting fish. Mike is ready. Special reel and pole. Check. Winter waders. Check. Waterproof, green fishing jacket. Check.
We spent the morning hiking along the river noting the best spots for fishing. Great trail with little side paths to get to the river. Moderate temperatures around 42-45 degrees with sun peeking over the snow-covered mountains in the distance.
Pinch me, is this real or just a dream?
