Anyways, I heard there is a small number of red springs and summer run steelhead, but it might be too late for those now. I tried going up there about 1 1/2 months ago float fishing roe, but no luck. There are lots of steelhead smolts and cutthroat trout in there. I was very careful to release them in a few feet of water and point them upriver in my hands until they swam away on their own.
I think as fall approaches, Coho, White Springs, and Chum will fill the river. I'm not too sure exactly when that starts, but I remember last Oct. the river was full of fish.
Hope that sort of helps. Oh and I think the water level may be a little low now, but again not too sure.
i usually start hitting the Chehalis around mid-late November for Coho as im fly fishing the Nicomen Slough for them until them which is the best way to hit Coho in the slough i have found and the coho fishing usually lasts until close to Christmas time and even later into february some years however im going for steel in the Chilli/Vedder by that time
