My friend and I fished the chehalis yesterday. We were on our way into the canyon and there was a tree across the snowy road. The tree was way too big to move, so we tried going up some side road a ways back and it ended hooking back up to the main road ! We got to the pool a little later than we hoped, but at least we were there. We started casting colorados in our favorite hole, and within a few casts I was into a nice doe coho. Landed and released. A few casts later I hooked into something big. I could see a big chrome bar flashing out in the green water. After a good battle I got it close enough to shore to see that it was a very large bright chrome fish. As I was pulling it shorewards, it gave one last head shake and the spinner came flying back at my head :evil: I landed 3 more fish in the next hour or so, then the morning bite was off. None of the fish were real bright, but a couple of them still had silvery sides, and they were all good fighters. My friend landed a nice hatchery doe in a little tail out, and that was the only one that came home with us. The snow made for an exciting hike to say the least (ass sliding into the canyon in waders :lol: ), and beautiful scenery.
