Skykomish River: Sultan to Monroe Professional Review and Guide

"The Skykomish between Sultan and Monroe offers excellent steelhead fishing. It sweeps widely within its flood plain, meandering between huge gravel bars, the shoreline protected by giant cottonwoods.

As it hugs the south side of its flood plain, it embraces steep hills that leave the river in shadow much of the year, a cold river where steelheaders gather to try their luck. The adjacent agricultural lands through which the river meanders are hardly noticed from the river, so dense is the streamside vegetation in most of this stretch."

I kayaked from the boat launch in Sultan to the one in Monroe in my sit-on. It was a slow, easy paddle with a few rapid areas that were easily navigatable. The total trip took 2 hours.

Dropped in a Sultan boat ramp and floated the 9 miles down to Monroe. It was a nice pleasant paddle. Would recommend to anyone looking to spend an afternoon on some easy water.

I kayaked from the boat launch in Sultan to the one in Monroe with my son sitting in my lap. It was a slow, easy paddle. There were a couple of rapids that I could easily walk around. We'd just put ashore and walk in the gravel past the rapids then get back in. Took about 2 hours, but we stopped to throw rocks, look under trees, etc. I'll definitely do it again.
