OK I can hear the laughter already! Yes I am new to the area. Had to take my woodie somewhere. So I could have picked better. Tomorrow I am fishing the Kalama and leaving the boat home!

I was on the river last Tuesday. I paddled up stream from the mouth with the incoming tide. I made it to just above Sterlings Landing, which is down stream from the highway. I could have gone higher, though, but I was fishing. I paddled back down to the Chehalis R in the evening after the tide dropped, and the flow seemed pretty low.
Yes, nice boat!
