I made this picture while visiting my brother on his riverside land.  The Skagit is designated and Wild and Scenic River System known for its runs of salmon in the Fall. Bald Eagles by the hundreds drop down to gorge on the carcasses of dead slamon.

"The Skagit River is the major north Puget Sound winter steelhead river located 2-3 hours north of Seattle. It is a prime winter steelhead river with fish over 20 pounds the quest. There is also a coho salmon fishery in October, a chum salmon run in November as well as pink salmon every odd-numbered year. Hatchery fish enter the river in November and are followed by late wild fish March through April. The river has flow controlled by Hydro dams upstream as well as on on the Baker River in the town of Concrete. The mean flow is 5500 cfs and has fluctuations up and down during the winter days according to the the heating demands of the City of Seattle. This does not seem to affect the fishing." http://www.orvis.com/fishing_report.aspx?locationid=5989
