Big bushy dry flies are of special interest to the large (up to 20 inches) cutthroat that live in the Methow River. Nymphs will also tempt these cutthroat and the healthy rainbow population. The Methow is a great river to float; fishing is allowed from the boat. Other flowing water venues are the Twist River and the Chewuck River; both best suited for wading. For the non-fishers, there is swimming, hiking, biking, shopping (Twisp’s Saturday farmers market and cowboy town Winthrop), and sightseeing (Grand Coolee Dam). We are camping at Lightning Pines Campground, on the river and across from the town of Methow. The camping fee is $8/ person/night. If you require only a tent site, you do NOT need to call Lightening Pines for a reservation. Reservations are required ONLY if you need an RV site/hookups/electricity.
The Outings Fee is $25 and covers all the food from Saturday breakfast through Sunday lunch.
