Headed out to the Chehalis this morning for what turned out to be a whole lot of exercise with not fishing. I appartently do not know where to go on the raiver anymore cause I walked around for over 3 hrs, up down left right and could not for the life of me find any fishable water. Realizing that I suck, and that I didn't want to follow that freakin bear that I heard not to far away from me anymore, I said screw this and headed to a river I know. Made it over to the Chilliwack, headed to one of the spots that I had had some success recently, the water was ok, i guess. Nothing really showing so I rigged up a blade and had at it. 20 min later.....



Then first cast after cleaning the doe and dealing with the roe.....



The buck was a little colored, but with the white belly it got the rock shower as well. After that I packed it in to leave the hole for another day and headed back to the trail for a couple pics and then home.

Yeah I should have known. The Chehalis has not been nice to me at all over the last couple years. It used to be my favorite river, now it's turned on me. ;D O know there are some nice spots there, and I was probably really close to a couple of them when I heard that bear grunting or whatever he was doing. But he was in the direction I needed to go..... so he won. :-[ ;D

Apparently, If in need a bear can be killed with a stick... So if you have a fishing rod that bear should be running. ::) Nice to find some fish, how are you floating your blades when the fish hit? free spool, hold back, reeling, flutering it off the bottom? how was the crowds?

Nice fish... How was the water level at the Chehalis?

Cheers, Rob
There was a lot of water in the main stem... but nothing really deep at all. I suppose if you headed down into the trees farther then I did you would find some nice stuff. The water level seemed good enough that there should be some nice spots somewhere.

Slightly holding back just enough to get the blade to swing slowly through the run. No one where I was.

If there is a Bear around walk away
the bear has just as much right to be there and you would not stand a chance with a stick :naughty:

Nice fish boys the coho are staring to come in good numbers now. I know what you mean DMW about the Chehalis. It used to be a great fishery I'm sure it still is you just have to hike. Something I don't like doing alone, but I do like to fish solo. Check out Goggle Earth you can really see some nice water at the chehalis its just a really far walk in from the hatchery or even further from Purdy's and i think you have to contend with some side channels and really thick bush, possibly a bear ?

Yeah, I made it into the thick brush, then felt and heard that the big furry bastard was near and decided it was best for me to go the other direction. I was probaby so close to some good water...... maybe next time.

you cant go by Google Earth, those pics are like 5 years old, it has totally changed since then
I don't think they are 5 years old. It gives you a good idea of what you can't see on foot. I know every river changes year after year or from blow out to blow out. It's still a good tool in my opinion. I use it to see where I fish in relation to other markers.
