    There's about a 50/50 chance I'll be moving to the Aberdeen area next month. I've never fished the southern portion of western Washington.

    Is there any good fishing (freshwater) within 50 miles of Aberdeen?

    You have SOOOOOOOOOOOO much good waters to fish w/in 50 miles of Aberdeen, that you make me sick. LOL. You have the whole Chehalis system (Chehalis, Wynoochee, Satsop, Skookumchuck, etc), Humptulips, then, alot of westside OP (Hoh, Solduc, Queets, etc), then a few to southwest of you (Johns, and a few I could tell, but would have to kill you. LOL).

    I'm trying to get a transfer through work to the Elma center of UPS. I'd probably move into Montesano, so I could have some acreage.

    You'll be pleased. If you have a boat, you'll be even happier.

    As mentioned above, you have access to some of the best water in the state!!! Oh, and did I mention less pressure?

    Thanks guys for good response. I'm pretty psyched now! I have a little 12' aluminum John boat that suits my needs but I'd like to get something a little more river-worthy.

    Wish me good luck on getting the job!

    Don't forget the North River as well! Oh, and all those estuaries and creeks for salmon and sea-runs..... I imagine there are a few good lakes too!?
    Good Fishing, Darin:beer2
