Maia Sparkman Hooks Coho on the Sol Duc River

Three days of torrential downpour before we arrived.

At least 7" total, we heard. Rising water levels. Dark, murky water, instead of the green we like to see.

There was nothing good about the conditions.

We hiked along the riverbank to an eddy.

Taking our chances. Trying our luck. Not certain at all of hooking a coho. In other words, fishing.
