More specifically, I'd like to get to the mouth of the cheakamus. Is anyone willing to share the directions? I'm going at first light tomorow, and hope I dont have to hunt through local roads in the dark. Thanks! :beerchug:

Well, I just got home from the 2.5hr return drive from Squamish (normally is 45 mins). We searched for some logging road that take us close to the mouth of the cheakamus, but had no luck. We then made our way over to Judd Rd, and started to hike up the river and fish the occasional spot for a few hours. no luck. We found some really nice spots, but they were lacking fish!

We then decided to head over to the Cheakamus (paradise valley road). I didn't have any luck with yarn, so I put on a #4 brass colorado blade and hooked a coho in one of my first casts. Got one more about 15 mins later. We tried for another few hours, but no more luck. The coho's were both about 7-8 lb does, and fairly coloured, but still a lot more fun than foul hooking a rotting chum!

Im still looking for directions to the mouth of cheakamus if someone can help. I have a bad ankle, so I try to avoid the really long hikes.

Looking at google maps now, It turns out that we walked almost all of the way to the mouth of the cheakamus, but got discouraged thinking it was a lot further up. oh well.

The road that follows the side of the river (walking only) will take you from judd road to the mouth.

Watch out for no tresspassiing signs too if you go down Axen road! Fn's reserve land all down there!

hey tim, my son and I ended up walking upstream, just above the tailout. Hooked nearly a dozen in a couple of hours. My son hooked half of them, landed three. Was a great day to be out. Fish were a little coloured, but fiesty nonetheless. I think that he hooked into a coho, with one of BentRods green and purple jigs, I was busy finding the camera while the fish leapt, and spat the hook. He said that all he saw was a big silver flash, with no bars. Nice to see some fish when it looked like all was lost.

Looking to head up to the Squamish/Mamquam this weekend with my son as well, although if the chum/coho run is pretty much finished we'll give it a pass. Any other recent news about fish remaining in this system? Thanks.
