Fishing Licenses, Daily Guest Passes, and
Season Pass Deposit Requirement

At the DSR, we value our guests, the lasting relationships and memorable experiences created here, and the importance of supporting high quality sporting traditions. We respect the environment and work hard to build trust among our guests, partners, and the community.

Sticking to our values means putting operational policies into effect to help us achieve our mission.  Here are a few reminders and changes in our Rules and Regulations that we’d like to bring to your attention.

NYS Fishing Licenses Required

The DSR is privately owned and operated, yet this does not create an exemption from State regulations. NYS Fishing Licenses are required while fishing at the DSR. Be prepared to show your fishing license to obtain your fishing pass, and keep your fishing license with you at all times while on the river.

Daily Guest Pass Gets a New Look
Our guests' expectation are high, and we in turn set expectations of our guests for ethical fishing practices and behavior. Please review our Guest Pledge printed on your pass and abide by the Pledge whenever you fish the DSR.

River Access Release Policy
We appreciate all our guests, yet valuing the loyalty of season pass holders is important. In order to provide equitable fishing experiences,  Daily Guest Passes will be issued 45 minutes after opening, permitting season pass holders and guides first access to river sites.

NEW* Deposit Required to Hold Spot on Season Pass Waiting List
We are improving the season pass waiting list process, primarily to shorten the list and waiting time by instituting a $100 refundable deposit (applied to cost of pass) to add or keep your name on the waiting list. Every angler whose name is currently on the list, and who wants to remain on the list, will be contacted by the end of the year to request a deposit. After January 1, 2016,  a one -time $100 deposit will be required to remain on this season pass holder waiting list.

If you or one of your fishing buddies email address has changed, please verify your email with us to ensure you receive notification of the new deposit requirement.
