I hesitated to post here tonight, sinced I was skunked, but since we did a circle tour, and saw alot, I figured it wouldn't hurt to put out info for you guys. :peace:

My first time at the Stave, in Ruskin Park, about noon. Wow, was she ever packed with the weekend crowd! But the area was way nicer than I imagined. I never wet my fly, but I did see guys in the parking lot, walking in steady numbers, with fresh chums in their hands. Saw a bunch of pontoon guys, shore dudes, and families. It was a beautiful day! :thumbup: The chum were coloured, but not too bad.

Checked out the Chehalis. Water levels were pretty good. It's not bone-low anymore, that's for sure. Only saw 2 dudes fishing by the healing lodge. Saw no jumpers, but did see about 20 springs in a run downstream. But they were ripe, rotten, or almost dead! The water seemed too high to hike further downstream, but maybe we could have if we had our waders. We wet waded today, since it was nice out. The hatchery had tons of cars, mostly tourists, as the salmon must be in there in nice numbers, with the bump of water levels.

Finally hit the Chilliwack, above Allison Pool, no one there, and hardly any fish showing. The ones that did show were close to shore and half dead, mostly ripe springs. Never did see signs of coho or even chum. Saw a bunch of dead springs on the shore.

Also hit the Vedder, at the Campground. Hit my usual run and corner slot, nothing. Even tried the new dig-out pool, with a muddler, as I saw some action, thinking it was coho. Upon closer inspection, it looked like the show was mostly black springs. I did see some blood spots on the bank close to the dug-out. I figured someone got lucky from that deep hole! But the splashing and jumping were pretty steady. But not one bite. :wallbash:

I don't know, the fish don't seem to bite as often or as steady, compared to last year. Maybe the run, overall, is lower than normal, or maybe the main run is still coming. ???

I kept the centerpin and drift rod in the car...I was too lazy to rig it up! I used mainly rolled muddlers for the coho, and hot pink flesh flies for the springs and chum. Well, I do remember last year, the majority of the fish I got on the fly, were more around Halloween and after. So I guess I'll wait patiently. :hmmm:

I hear ya man! I fished the Vedder from first light til 3 pm with only a couple of chums to show for the day../ It was a very tough day for me. We did a lot of hiking for nothing except time put in!

So true.... I have been out every day almost since August exploring water.. :beerchug:
But seriously, when was the last time the Vedder hasn't blown out in the fall, VERY unlikely it will remain the same this year :'(
