Bucket List Rivers...
« on: May 14, 2019, 09:29:03 AM »
I'm just curious as to which rivers you guys and gals are hoping to scratch off your bucket list this year?

I'd love to return to explore and fish a few more of the rivers and streams in the Rockies of Colorado, or wander the banks of the Madison and Yellowstone River in Montana, but unfortunately both of those dreams destinations will most likely have to wait until next year...

How about the  rest of you? What rivers on on this year's list and/or where do you wish that you could go...

For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

The Skagit.  I've heard great things but have never gone.  I really hope to change that this summer!

It's a great river, Marc! One of my favourites.

Yeah, the Skagit is great!

I'm not too sure what I want to bucket lost for a river.  I'm pretty happy with anything as long as there is something there!  Every river is so nice, and I could list a hundred, and then think of another hundred... and then another!
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

Don't be a Pessimist. Don't be an Optimist.  Be a Realist and change when you need to.

I wouldn't do that Mike, you might go moldy like a lettuce and tomato sandwich sitting in a preschoolers lunch box waiting for my bucket list river to be scratched.  :(
