Should the question not be Beef anybody?

Even in America you must eat beef steaks not cow steaks even if you do hold your utensils(knife and fork) in the wrong hands.

You'll have to settle for some stripers.

Yep was planning on using the watermaster. The float from blue to mission aint that long, 5-6 hours, and I will be down there anyway visiting the folks.

Doubt I will do the crack of dawn thing and wait for the sleds to clear out a little. Thinking of starting around 9 and finishing by 4. Gotta be back in Seattle by 8 to pick up my wife from the airport.

Cool, bankers hours, or should I say Stay At Home Dad of 2 hours
Well, I'm down then if you want to. Haven't fished it yet so the meet directions need to be pretty specific. How many hours from the airport would you guess in the morning? Wouldn't want to be late.

The Cow huh? Is that the only river big enough for that new 16' toy of yours?

You are correct sir Wait till you try it with the carron long belly. I might need to start fishing the columbia main stem.

Phlister,

It is about 2 hours from the airport. You can do it in less if traffic is moving.

Here is the directions:

http://www.ci.tacoma.wa.us/power/par...t_hatchery.htm

taking from the page:

To get to Barrier Dam boat launch from Interstate 5, take State Highway 12 east to the community of Silver Creek. Turn right (south) on to Gershick Road. At the end of the road turn left on to Spencer Road and follow the road as it bends to the right. Drive straight past the salmon hatchery to the Barrier Dam boat launch and fishing area.

To get to the Blue Creek boat launch from Interstate 5, take State Highway 12 east to the community of Ethel. Turn right (south) on to Tucker Road. Tucker Road bends to the right where it meets Classe Road at a Y. Go straight on to Classe Road. At the end of the road turn left on to Spencer Road. Watch for the signs directing you to turn right to go to the trout hatchery and to the Blue Creek boat launch.


My cell is 206-427-4310 if there are any problems. Will be there at 9.

-sean

Philster -

Get to Blue at dawn and make a few runs through the pool. You might be smiling by the time 9a rolls around.

Sinktip,

Ah the line control one has with a 16'er is well worth the extra length. Besides, they make an even better lightning rod than those wee 14' and 15' rods of yours in this weather we have been having the last few days.

Rolling out a 2:00 a.m.? To quote the Stones "I ain't got that much Jam!"

Philster,

2:00, a big deal? Just call me Schmuckers I liked the "Some Girls" reference though!


Russ,

You don't have to preach anymore, I'm a convert. So much so, I'm offering to let Sean leave his 16' toy in my safe keeping when he moves to the right coast.

'Tip,

If he agrees to your generous offer to "babysit" his 16' Solstice, he may have a hard time prying it from your grasp. As the old timers I knew in the coal fields of Pennsylvania would have said, "You'd best be gettin' y'er own now."

Sean,

I haven't been there in a month now, but was contemplating this weekend. I haven't met most of you yet, but would like to meet more, as I'm usually the only fly rodder I see on the Cowlitz. Sunday works best for me this weekend. I've got a small sled, however, that I usually bring. You're welcome to ride and not have to arrange a shuttle.

It looks like the Cowlitz isn't getting a very large run this year, due to a large loss of fry/pre-smolts a couple years ago when the ozone water treatment went down for a while. The reports I'm hearing keep saying it's slow fishing. However, there is lots of casting room.

Sincerely,

Salmo g.
