I went to check out the section by Boeing and was surprised to see heavy machinery IN the river. Looks like they're making it deeper and narrower. Any ideas whats going on and when this might be completed? I wish they could have done this when the river was closed, and not started when it finally opened!

They're dredging sediment to increase channel capacity. God forbid any of Boeing's infrastructure be threatened by natural processes. They have to do this type of work in a limited timeframe known as a "fish window"; a window of time when most if not all of the outmigrating smolts have left, and before returning anadromous adults are passing through. That's also the time they let the plebes fish, probably for the same reasons.

Yes, just got home from a couple hours fishing. Hooked into one solid fish that got off at the net and moved a couple more all on small/medium size streamers!
Cedar in the morning is nice. A couple times when I worked in Redmond and lived in Seattle, I would leave super early and fish for a while, then take the 405 to work. It's amazing what you do when you are 22 and desperate.

I get off work at 5:30am and have about a 2 mile drive to one of my favorite stretches of river. But I think after this weekend I'll only be fishing weekdays!

You should start a petition to fill the ship canal and restore the Black. I'd be your first signature...

True that. Fishing the last mile of the Cedar is about as thrilling as a joy ride with Mom on Mercer at 5 pm.
We used to catch big fish right at the mouth as there were a few holes and log piles, but that was a few moons ago when I'd gladly ride a bmx bike 12-15 miles a day just to toss a roostertail and see what was what.

We always saw large fish in the riffle above the trestle bridge too, may have been steelhead back then, who knows.
