Yes Hook, I totally agree with that!! I was able to find some nice runs in the woods, but they are real hard to get to, and my favorite runs from when there was water down the hatchery channel, are now just pools with no flow. I would love to get back into these runs as they were stellar, and hardly anyone ever fished them!! Anyhow, I keep hearing mumouring's that this was going to be addressed. But I guess nothing has been done yet. Last I heard was that the Natives wanted it changed back to the Hatcery as well, as the water was eroding away at their land rather quickly. I guess we will alll have to wait and see. :wink:
I was there in late July, and there were rocks piled up to divert flow through the hatchery channel, but no water going through yet. It looks like a little water will go through there when the water comes up, but not much more than the last few years. I do all my fishing in the canyon anyways 8)
My buddy and I are thinking about heading to the Chehalis on Sunday. But I havent heard anything about whats going on there? Can you advise the water levels and how the fishing is? We could meet up with you early in the morning.
