I heard that the campground was being turned over to the natives (which would include access to the Easter Seal run). Is this true? Anyone else heard this?

"it's just another 100 yards and were there" or my favorite "just over the next ridge" :wallbash:

kind of a familiar phrase when you head out with Rib :thumbup:

Ya, that day was grueling! But well worth it in the end :happy:

One of the last big hikes we did, we didn;t even make it to the river....4 hours in the bush, man I was tired after that!

I kind of look at it like going for a walk in the woods with our fishing gear just incase we find a
nice spot to stop and wet a line.... :D.......Marko

100 yards or so more of this rib bashing and this thread will hit the road mighty quick.... :pissed: ;) ;D

Chehalis was high, 3 feet visibility the other day, dropped 3 inches over the course of the day, was definitley fishable, absence of fish that day though...

danielk i sugest u go with some one with experience with that river. I can be quite dangerous. Canyons are slippery, and the river rises fast. fishing can be awsome some days and others the fish wont take anything. Its a good river to fish as an alternative to the vedder, or the other way around.

Good luck and tight lines.

ya some of for sure know about the river rising fast eh there Wagonmaster :p :p

we were there a few years ago and the river was damned up in the canyon so people were scattered everywhere on little newly created islands catching fish all over. the river slowly dropped over the morning hours we noticed and wondered why. well at around 130-2pm ish we heard this huge rumbling like thunder and as we looked towards the noise we could see this wall of water and debris barrelling down on us. my dad(wagon) was on an island across from us with a fish on and tried to snap it off as fast as possible. he did manage to make his way through the water after waiting for the initial blow of debris came by, he was up to the top of his waders in full current and with full sized trees coming. he could have been killed at any moment, I was standing by the water with a long large stick incase i had to reach it to him.

in about 5 mins and i mean it thats not an exxageration the water came up about 4-5 feet

this of course doesnt happen often but just remember it can so try not to trap yourself in certain places without an escape route

can u fish the canyon all the way to the lake? i know the fish would be black up there but around mid way they'd still be silver and i wouldn't have to deal with tons of other guys.

Oh no! I hope I don't come across you while I'm hiking in or out! :beerchug:
you can fish the canyon right to the top but there is a couple dandy water falls up there...especially right below the chehalis lake entrance....whether there is a ton of fish up reely high or not...thats another story....

DANIELK: The chehalis is an ok river to fish by yourself. Just not the canyon.....go in there alone & one wrong move will have you upside down wetting your shorts, or tumbling down a cliff with broken limbs before plunging into the great depths of the chehalis......but the campground - hatch (maybe if the river is diverted a little bit) are good runs to fish by yourself only danger is falling in.....there is a few awsome runs on that river if one wants to put in the time and effort and sweat to find these little gems....the odds of finding them are so slim... :yummy:
