The upper Skagit is a mountain creek where it crosses back and forth across the Hope-Princeton highway. It contains only a few small trout. Sumallo Creek isn’t much better and the fish are just as tiny. It isn’t until several miles downstream that the Skagit becomes the classic trout stream that fly fishermen know and love. Fortunately, from Sumallo Grove downstream to the Skagit Valley the river has been protected from logging and is still in its natural state. There are no roads and only one hiking trail along the river. In the Skagit Valley basin, a gravel road parallels the river as far as the reservoir. Luckily, the road is far enough away from the river so as not to destroy its beauty.
