Anyone been there lately ??? whats it like ?? has the water come up yet ??
Alex

The best time to go fishing Chehalis is when the water level starts to drop after a considerable rain. The best time is 4-6 hours after the water level started to drop. Watch for the end of rain. The best bait for steelhead is shrimp with a little bit of green wool.

Tight lines and sharp hooks!

P.S.
Haven't been there lately. My assumption is that it needs more rain or melting snow.

ALex, I cant beleive the stuff you post on here. Reading back I was sickened that you were telling people to use tuffline on the vedder. Are you for real? You use line like that on the Fraser. It is beeks like you that are ruining fishing. Damn Beek!

Hey anonymous, nobody is ruining fishing. People from this forum taught me how to freshwater fish, so how the hell are they ruining fishing? hes just posting his opinion, maybe he has a trick to using tuffline, you never know. but on this forum we respect everyones opinions. so in other words , put up or shut up so get lost

Is the water flowing thru the hatchery"? a few months ago the floods redirected the river away from the hatchery, they would of needed an excavator to redirect the flow.
ps. I'm not the other anonomous

Fish On - The lower sections of the chehalis is a mess right now. There is very little flow in any part. The hatchery hole was filled in after dredging it (didn't last long). The only thing that remains is a small, shallow, riffly section and a very slow piece of water above it. Something needs to be done about the branching of the river, in particular the shift of flow through the log jams at easter seals. Alex is right, best time is after a rain.
Anonymous - You are a joke buddy. You come on the internet, fail to register and then shoot your mouth off about what one guy chooses to use while he is fishing. You got the right idea man; come here, spew your bulls*it propaganda and f**k off. Make you feel like a big man? Its funny, you have no idea who Alex is yet you make uninformed assumptions about his person and his fishing techniques. I can assure you thaat Alex is a very learned fisherman. Good on ya pal, hide behind the anonimity of the internet and take cheapshots at others. Coward.

Good on you "Dyer," I was on another forum earlier and it was the same crap. Bitter people looking to slam anyone they could. I do not get it. I thought these forums were for people who enjoy fishing. If you want to sit around and bitch and nag go to a tupper wear party "Anonymous."
JoHn87

yea your all right. this is a forum for people who enjoy fishing. not for some jack ass that comes on and start mouthing off people that they dont know. thats just bull s$%t. Alex is a nice guy, he knows exactly what hes doing when it comes to fishing. anonymous your just a moron man. you come on , and start talking trash about somone because they use a different type of line.. your one judgemental bastard, and its pretty obvious you probably have no friends and nobody likes you. Good call Andrew, Good call hawg, that guy is a dumbass period.

Hey dyer, how was your day fishing on sunday?? never heard from you since saturday. just wondering if you caught anything sunday
Anonymous

Not trying to be an ass or anything as I have just found out what a great guy Alex is and with his wealth of knowledge but would you honestly beleive or agree with these quotes that he wrote.

1} Bottom bouncing is pretty much mainstream on the Vedder.
2}Mainline of 35lb to 50lb. test and 20 to 30lb. leaders with 2/0 and 3/0 hooks is good for coho and springs.

Anxiously awaiting your replys my fellow rods

Yikes,Maybe if you fishing for rocks, I like a challenge not overekill, anyone can catch by flossing (BB)Done it in the past, not anymore
el-nino2010

hey anom.....i don't recall alex writing stuff like that about the vedder and i've been on this forum for a long while...bb with 50lb line is unheard of!..if anything alex and dyer and others are finesse fisherman going after their fish as sportfisherman truly do....light line and accurate presentations.
fish on

el-nino2010- when I first started i did not catch much fish, then learned alot and started hooking up to the point that it was not a challenge to the fish anymore, so I started to go with lighter line and expierience, it was so much more satisflying :D I love to fish and be in the outdoors,but there is a time that I want to pose a challenge to myself by catching a fish that gives the fish a fair fight. Sure I want to get a big one but it's much more eventful to challenge yourself to get one. Fishing = test YOUR skills to land a fish with the best presentation as possible, lightest line, lightest rod!
Dyer Straits

Anon. If such things were said, as you claim without proof, there would still be nothing wrong with them. They may have been taken out of context or you may be just oblivious to the fact that bottom bouncing on the vedder, especially for springs and steelhead, can be extremely effective. There is no mention of intent to floss or snag. The heavy gear for "coho and springs" is a common sight on the fraser during the latter season of the slamon run where there is overlapping of coho and springs, the same gear used for flossing sox. Now, I might be wrong, but are these type of things out of the ordinary? Anxiously awaiting your reply...
Alex

Wow! I missed the chance to reply to this flame earlier

Sure, this setup was for Springs in Vedder river (btw, setup depends on the fish, not the river size). Hmm, someone was really pissed off trying to attack in such a primitive manner.

Heavier gear is better for new fishermen as it will result in fewer hooks stuck in the fish and less exhausted fish - playing fish faster means there is a better chance for successful spawning after being released.


I can hardly imagine steelhead fishing with a leader more then 12lb, though.
