DELAYED OPENING 1/21/22 – 9:00 AM

January 19, 2022

6:45 am Opening Time

6:00 pm Closing Time

This weather is WILD.  Temperatures hovered around 40 F today, again with little wind.  With grim forecasts through the end of the month (won't get warmer than 28 F) , a handful of anglers jumped at the opportunity. Several of the anglers that joined us today indicated quite a bit of slush, and ice coming down for most of the day.  This wont be the last of it either, considering that forecast that looming over us.  Fishing wasn't easy today, with a lot of "One for's"today, but also a couple of "Two for's", with one brown reported today.  These fish are taking complete advantage of the vail the ice shelves offer them, making for some tough drifts, and requiring calculated landing opportunities. Due to forecasted conditions, DSR will begin tomorrow with a delayed opening time of 9:00 AM.  Please stay tuned for abbreviations to our schedule due to impending conditions.

With a break in the weather, today wasn't terribly cold, with minimal wind.  Just a couple of anglers blazed the trails today, both having rather short outings indicating a considerable amount of slush in addition to rather unstable shelf ice.  A few takes on the first few couple of casts, but today just wasn't in favor of the anglers, conditions on the river proved to be quite difficult to overcome.

Despite the dropping temperatures, conditions started out pretty good.  One angler joining us right off the bat, to get his fishing in early this morning.  He was to bring a beautiful colored up buck this morning. His words "They are ALL good! But some are definitely better than others”. By the end of his outing, temperatures had steadily dropped, with the wind picking up quite a bit.  A few other season pass holders came in early this afternoon just at the beginning of the high winds, battling through it for a couple of hours.  They were each able to hook and bring a couple of fish to hand.  On their retreat back to the Welcome Center, one of the anglers wasn’t ready to call it a day, hitting another fish on his way back and continued to stick it out for quite a while. With temperatures continuing to drop, and anticipated to plummet below zero, DSR will be open for abbreviated hours on Saturday 1/15/22 and Sunday 1/16/22; Opening at 9:00 AM / Closing at 3:00 PM.

Today was a bit of a luxury, with temperatures finally breaking freezing reaching a high of about 36F.  Another treat, the dam was dropped to 350 CFS at 7:00 AM this morning, making for quite an interesting day. Typically never favorable for anglers when we have a drop during the day.  Between snow melt, and shelf ice beginning to give way with no support from the higher water, things were definitely a bit of a mess in some areas of the run.  Most of our anglers seemed to have a tough go at it today, most with success coming early this morning, before we saw the affects of the water drop. Some of our veteran pass holders, took advantage of the break in the weather and ventured a bit farther today and were rewarded handsomely.  The high stick of the day today went 7 for 9 (covering a lot of ground), bottom bouncing egg sacs.  His theory, it was all luck, with lightly pressured water this past week. Temperatures will begin to drop back down tonight, with a forecasted 23 F at our opening time tomorrow.  And, it's only expected to get colder as the day goes on, projected to drop down to 9 F by closing tomorrow.  Saturday, is even COLDER.  Please stay tuned for announcements surrounding abbreviated hours this weekend in the event of the zub zero temperatures.

Not quite as cold as yesterday, but the wind sure made it feel worse.  Surprisingly, despite this little break in temperatures, we didn't see much angling pressure today.  Two anglers ventured onto the run this afternoon, one first-timer and one veteran pass holder, both float fishing.  They both expressed ice shelfs which were quite difficult to negotiate while fishing in the middle section. But, our pass holder indicated compared to a few days prior, and a slight drop in the water, the ice shelves have started to clear way a bit.  Good news for the middle section, sounds like bad news for the lower end of the run, I can only imagine the piles of ice beginning to claim the banks and runs.  Despite the ice shelfs, our pass holder was able to get plenty of good drifts in, and landed a few fish.  Expectations were set a bit higher for today, but they just weren't having it today.  Temperatures are forecasted to creep past freezing tomorrow, but with snow flurries in the mix.

BELOW ZERO!

Well, we got exactly what was forecasted for this one.  Temperatures dropped dramatically last night, with temperatures around -7 F when we arrived at the office today.  Needless to say, although the run would have felt like a warm bath on a day like today, slush and ice shut things down today for anglers on the river.  With about a foot or so of snowfall here, and untouched water for a couple of days now.  Smells fishy to me. DSR will resume normal hours of operation tomorrow (6:45AM - 5:45PM), with a fair forecast of about 28 F around our opening time.  Just be ready to chip some ice, and blaze some trails!  Winds tomorrow look to be the only trouble in store, until we approach the weekend with some more intensely cold weather.

Snow Day (Welcome to the new DouglastonSalmonRun.com !)

With temperatures beginning to take a dip last night and accumulation of snow, regardless of a delay or not, today just wasn't the day to be on water.  The snow is continuous, with white out conditions, reducing visibility substantially, even on foot.  Again, with impending weather and record low temperatures forecasted, DSR will operate on a delayed opening with office hours from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.   The wade is almost over.  With just a few snags, and things to untangle, we've got our hands full preparing for our Fishing Pass release on Monday so everyone can land the fishing passes they've been wading for.  Emails will be sent to guests of varying categories (Season Pass Holder, Waiting List Guests, Lodge Guest) for pertinent information to prepare them for the Daily Fishing Pass release.
