Only the little trout were biting while I was at Spring Hills Reservoir, about 12 miles from town earlier today. But it was an awful lot of fun with my fly rod & kayak:

Spring snow melt, hikes

Caught some footage of a creek above Lake Wenatchee's Hidden Lake last week. How far out on trails have people ventured this spring? Snow's still keeping me mostly in the foothills.

 

Video details for the camera nerds: I shot the water in slo-mo (60 fps) to capture it's motion, then copied and pasted the waterfall soundbites to make up for the video's longer length. You're essentially hearing each video segment two times over.

Greetings All,

I hiked the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT - Mexico to Canada) in 2015 and more than happy to share tips and stories.  If you are not aware of it, Lake Valhalla is a great day hike and is in our own backyard.  You can make it a six-mile round trip by accessing the PCT via the Smithbrook Trailhead (just short of Stevens Pass traveling West - three miles to the TH - one mile of uphill hiking to the PCT and then two gentle miles to the lake).  Try to go on a weekday if you can.  It is usually snow accessible by mid-July.
