    I have never been there. Any ideas on what to expect and what to use? I will be in hip waders and willing to walk.

    there should still be some silvers in there maybe chums. if it rains pretty hard dont go the indians sold all the logging rights so there is nothin to stop all the water and erosion so it goes strait into the river. start at the bridge at hunter farms if you see fish, fish. but take the road across from the fruit stand or whatever, old purdy cut-off rd. that goes parallel to the part that goes to the hatchery that is where people are catchin fish. these are hatchery fish so they dont take a fly as well as natives. baciclly its a snagfest with a large hook and yarn. 4 fish limit. the indians just cut them open and strip there eggs then throw them in big piles in the river to feed the creek and if you look at the fish there are bucks split open and checked for eggs. to much fire water and companionship with trailer park mutt i guess. youll need waders. if you are driving far dont bother i would check out the wynootche or satsop they get later runs of native fish i think and much more willing to catch on fly. bank and wading access. check your fly shop they should know i got a map here some where. across the river is the res so dont wade and fish on that part they have been known to be unfreindly to people on there land fishing and hunting. later Ben

    youll see abandoned fish nets wrapped arond structure full of fish. these are not the most conservative people by any means.
