As the clouds stretch rain from Shanghai to Seattle I think to only a few weeks back! Thanks to @emweebs for being my sunset model on a very picturesque Puget Sound evening. #visitseattle #pugetsoud

Tonight I swam in the rain with a slippery river otter..Together we watched a double rainbow dazzle across the water sky as night seeped over the cold sea. .

As much as I love the Northwest's iconic salmon and steelhead, and how our region's history and culture are entwined with their return, it's hard to beat cutthroat in terms of fishy beauty. Just as amazing is how trout, a species known for inhabiting lakes, rivers and streams, can be so perfectly suited for the cobble beaches, oyster beds, and eel grass flats of the intertidal Salish Sea. We're lucky to have plentiful saltwater habitat for these special fish, as well as forward-thinking catch and release regulations to steward them. But our sea run cutthroat often depend on fragile suburban watersheds and "jump-across" creeks for spawning, and our region's rampant growth has undoubtedly put a strain on their populations. Add in marine mammal predation, freshwater anglers who sometimes see them as just another trout for the pan, and other threats, and a strong future for our native coastal cutthroat isn't assured. I'm grateful for groups like the @searuncoastalcutts Coalition working to study and conserve these special fish. With proper planning and sensible policy, I hope amazing specimens like these two Puget Sound cutts will become more common, not less. #searuncutthroat #cutthroat #flyfishing #catchandrelease #PNW

That time I climbed down a rocky bluff to retrieve a giant kelp to gnaw on bc I was told you could eat it like an apple. 🍎🤷🏼‍♀️🍎

@PNWProtector’s @swimming_in_moonlight keeps a watch over her beloved Salish at all times. This sea is her home and it’s residents are her family. Every choice she makes is prefaced with, “How will this decision effect the Salish Sea?” To me, this is the essence of being a Protector and how I strive to become one myself.

I'm terrible a casting. But I'm learning that it's not about how good or how bad you are... it's just about being there. 🖤🐟 #flyfishing #fishingatdusk #fishing #ckburkheimer #patagonia #patagoniaflyfishing #girlswhoflyfish #tryingtofly #sunset #burkheimerflyrods #getoutside #sundayvibes #pnw #pnwlife
