Other than Blue Creek and Barrier Dam access points: it is nearly impossible to reach the river by foot, unless you gain permission from landowners. Many areas near the river are actually leased or rented, therefore simply walking to a likely access doesn't mean you'll find the right person who can grant permission. For such a big river, there really isn't too much fly-water on the Cowlitz (but you've seen this already) that can be reach by foot, and those few spots are better covered through use of water-craft.
