A buddy and I fished the river after doing some hunting earlier in the morning. We had to do a lot of hiking as the spots we usually fished weren't holding a lot of water. One of the last spots we tried had quite a few fish. Mixed in though were a lot of chums. We fished eggs and had a lot of success catching a bunch of jacks and small adults. We did hook a few bigger silvers, but most of them popped off. Got one though that weighed almost 8lbs. With the closure looming, I'd get done there this weekend and fish it before it closes. There are enough fish in the river to make a trip.

Thanks

The run is NOT "just starting", returning numbers of coho have been dismally small. While Melanie and I did well during the peak (beginning of Oct.) numbers by the state and the Quinault tribe show runs throughout the Chehalis - Greys' harbor system are 30% or less. State was late shutting things down as were the Quinault. Thank the pressure put on the state by the folks who attended the Greys Harbor salmon management meetings that went on throughout 2014 and 2015 for the in-season adjustment that did occur. Just should have been shut down for ALL (rec, tribe, and commercial) 2 weeks earlier. Bob R
