Chehalis

So anyone out today. Thinking of hitting it tomorrow before I'm off to Dallas TX for 5 days training. Going to go to the Cowboy's and Colts on Sunday. First NFL game. Should be cool.

Cheers, Rob

I am heading there on sunday but i fear the weather may get in my way of heading into the canyon so I will attempt to find my way through the sea of chums. Last week almost all the chums i saw were below the hachery but there were tonnes of them and really slim hopes of finding a coho in that mess. However it is still a day on the river so who can complain.

97.83% of the chum in the river are below the hatchery. Once you get up above and into the canyon, the coho outnumber the chum. 8)

Sorry for the late post but I have had no internet for 2 days due to a branch that fell and knocked out some lines. I hit the Chehalis yesterday with a buddy from work. We fished in the canyon and I manage to land 4 coho. 3 hatchery and one wild one plus lost about 4 others. Both I kept had a bit of color but nice and firm. The one in the photo was arounf 7-8lb's and the other was 11.6lb's on my scale but could take a pic as the batteries were weak due to the cold weather. The bigger one was cleaner than the one in the photo below. The water was high and almost un-fishable but still ok. There sure was a lot of trees down due to the last wind storm. Now I'm in Dallas for a few days so have to wait till next weekend to fish.

Cheers, Rob

PS: Missed that gill hanging out but oh well. Only pick I have.

Water visibility was around 6' but went down to 2' once the snow melted. I don't know how it will be tomorrow.

Cheers, Rob

fished the chehalis today........not a river i have fished more than a couple of times..........had the pleasure of meeting Wagonmaster, Hook and his girlfriend at the river today.......also met Uncle Binky........you never know who you are talking to .......it was nice to put some faces to the names on this site......all very nice people

as far as the fishing/below the hatchery very little water and hordes of chum......quite a few dark coho mixed in

above the hatchery quite a bit of water but very fishable and decent clarity just no coho to be seen.....fished from just above easter seal run up to the highest spot without going into the canyon.......nada.....except for a few chum

talked to 2 guys with a very large coho about 3:00 just as i was getting ready to leave........they spent seven hours fishing in the canyon for one coho.......a very enjoyable day none the less
