    Yellow perch, walleye, and halibut are all about as good as it gets.

    I never really cared much for steelhead, unless it was smoked.

    If y'all are sick of eating salmon, king crabs and halibut, I'll box up all the walleye, bluegill, perch, cat fish, and crappie you want and trade you pound for pound!

    Grayling...and you're right, they don't freeze at all.

    TB, Pool 7 or 8? I know a guy that quit deer hunting just to fill his freezer with walleye says it is a lot easier to get 100lbs of walleye than it is to get 100lbs of venison. :yes

    Pool 8, Lived on French Island for 5 of the years I was in LaX. Had a boat slip right down from the apartment. Remember a number of cold nights that I'd pull in my 6 all over 20" in under 2 hours. I used to release all of them over 24" and would get 1 or 2 every fall in that 28-29" range, never got one in the boat over 30" though. By late Oct those females have eggs and look like they sawllowed a basketball. That is a pretty under-utilized fishery and probably a good thing since those big females are pretty vulnerable that time of year. I'd give you my spots, but I may be back there someday.... :dv
