May 31, 2022

After a few days of some seriously beautiful and warm weather, it's safe to say the river has officially turned into a warm bath.  Flows are still up, with a release of 500 CFS and a reported 622 CFS at the Pineville gauge.  Temperatures this morning were a recorded 64 F, and getting up to 68 F, by mid day. We will see some thunderstorms tonight, and things cooling off a little bit with thunderstorms and rain for a greater part of the day tomorrow.  Anglers that joined us today, reported a rather quiet outing with just a few bass reported.

Clearing skies and temperatures in the the low 70's made for a beautiful day on the run. Only about a half dozen angers joined us on the run today without a great deal of success and by mid-afternoon most had left to commemorate Memorial Day with family and friends. Water from the dam has remained at 500 cfs throughout the day and will remain at that level until midnight

Initially, the CFS at the dam was supposed to be 750, until midnight yesterday, then drop to 185 just after midnight - however, guests fishing the run reported that the flow this morning had not dropped noticeably - our periodic checks of the flow verified that the most recent flow at the dam was, in fact, 500 (as of 2 PM today and projected out until midnight tomorrow) - CFS at the Pineville gauge is currently 851 - our air temperature started at 55 degrees this morning, and rose to 77 degrees as of 4 PM - water temperature started at 60 degrees first thing this morning, and rose to 64 degrees by noon - our hazy skies cleared up to blue skies and sunshine which, with the slight breezes, made for an absolutely beautiful day to be out and fishing the run - we had a total of seven guests who joined us, arriving early and trickling in through the afternoon - one guest, who came in late and left early after just a couple of hours, was very pleased with the six Smallmouth Bass he was able to bring to hand, as well as a bonus (small) Atlantic Salmon - a guide and his companion were able to bring three bass to hand, even though they were only practicing their casting techniques (must have been effective techniques . . . ) - our other guests were also able to bring to hand a few bass as well - our overnight low will be 58 degrees - the forecast for tomorrow is "Sunshine and clouds mixed. High 83F. Winds SW at 5 to 10 mph" - tomorrow is Memorial Day - it has been often said that the cost of freedom is not "for free" . . . all too often the cost is too high . . . and that cost is paid daily by our veterans and servicemembers - please take a moment to thank veterans and servicemembers for their service and personal sacrifices, and to remember those who are no longer with us - "Thank you!".

Clouds, drizzle, and fog for the better part of the morning gave way to clearing skies and pleasant sunshine in the afternoon. The water level was raised to 750 cfs from the dam and that (combined with the Memorial Day Weekend activities) may have contributed to keeping anglers off of the run today. Only a couple anglers fished the run and I was unable to obtain a status report from them.
 
Tomorrow looks to be a beautiful day with plenty of sunshine and a high of 74 degrees.

A few rain showers this morning didn't deter a couple eager anglers from hitting the run early this morning and they were rewarded with plenty of smallmouth bass on the line. This afternoon brought heavy rains and chased those anglers off the run, but tomorrow is a new day and things should dry out by midday.

Water temperatures this morning were a recorded 60 F. We'll see what things look like after this push of rain.

Again, we really couldn't ask for a nicer day.  Just a bit warmer than yesterday, warming up the water a bit today. The recorded water temperature this morning here on the run was 58 F, climbing to 61 F.  The bass sure seemed to like it.  With a bit warmer water, our pass holders noted some extra fight in them today.  Both of the anglers that joined us today were able to bring at least a few to hand. One did a little better than the other, to include a few around 18"+.  Nevertheless , another great morning on the water for both of theses anglers, swinging flies.

65 degrees and partly cloudy.  I’m not sure you could ask for a nicer day to be on the water.  A quiet morning for the run, with just one angler, finishing up early afternoon reporting a couple of bass in his outing.  He did also note, he brought a steelhead to hand yesterday.  They haven’t been gone long, but we all miss them already.  It’s certainly nice to see a few still in the mix.  This afternoon, a group of anglers joined us for a few hours, and cleaned up with a count of 26 bass between them.  They sure weren’t messing around!  Think you could top 26 smallmouth bass down here on the run?!

Cooler temperatures than the past several days made fishing much more enjoyable. Sunshine in the morning gave way this afternoon to rain, drizzle, and foggy conditions. The fishing pressure was very light this afternoon and we only had a few guests take advantage of what is still an excellent Smallmouth bass fishery.
Water from the dam remains at 185 cfs and the flow at Pineville is currently 256 cfs.

Rain and Fog today

Scattered rain showers and periods of fog dominated today but we still had a few guests join us hoping to get a late dropback on the line. Two of our guests fished the first half of the day with streamers and nymphs and got into a number of smallmouth bass and missed one steelhead. The 8am water temperature was 55F.

Another cool day today, with temperatures remaining in the 50's, not much overcast in the earlier part of the day making things a bit tough for the duo that joined us.  Water temperatures were up a couple of degrees from yesterday, with this morning's temperature recorded at 52 F, and a recorded temperature of 56 F this afternoon.  Each angler covering quite a bit of water, the angling duo went bass for bass today, with 3 to hand, each.  We will see a bit more overcast tomorrow with a bit of rain expected tonight, into tomorrow morning.

Some sun after quite a gloomy day yesterday.  But along with that sun, we got some serious wind today.  Constant gusts made it terribly difficult for the couple of anglers that joined us on the run.  Although difficult, these guests were rewarded for their perseverance with a handful of bass. Water temperatures recorded again today at 57 F.  Forecasts for the remainder of the week are looking a little rough at the moment.  It's going to be a cold and rainy close to the week.

A little less heat, and a whole lot more sunshine with temperatures hovering around 70 F today.  Surprisingly, just about a half dozen anglers joined us on the run.  The anglers we were able to catch up with both indicated plenty of small mouth action, with a bonus steelhead in the mix for one lucky angler.  Water temperatures were a recorded 62 F this morning and approached 64 F mid afternoon.  Forecasted temperatures seem to be hanging between 60 and 80 F for the upcoming week.  As for tomorrow, hold onto your hats.  Tomorrow's forecast calls for variable clouds with strong thunderstorms. Damaging winds, large hail and possibly a tornado with some storms. High 71F. Winds WSW at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 90%.

Another bright, sunny and rather hot day that saw about a half dozen anglers fish the run. A large one lost was the Steelhead action for the day, but there are still plenty of Smallmouth to keep things interesting. A couple of anglers were able to get into double-digit smallies with a couple in the five pound category. Tomorrow won't be quite as warm with some thunderstorms in spots during the afternoon

A little warmer than t has been lately with temperatures nearing 80 degrees which caused the water temperatures to go from 55 early to 61 degrees by noon. Only a couple of season pass holders joined us today with one getting into some small mouth bass and the other having a great day by bringing three Steelhead to hand while swinging flies. He was happy, to say the least!

An absolutely beautiful day on the run today. The kind we wait for throughout a sometimes difficult winter. About a half of a dozen anger decided to join us today and while I didn't have the opportunity to talk with all of them, those that reported indicated an excellent day for both Steelhead and Smallmouth bass. One extremely happy Season Pass Holder had a great day going 2 for 4 with some strong and beautiful Steelhead and was able to get into some bass as well. Add the spectacular environment and you have a day to remember for a long time. Water is warming up a bit; starting at 52 degrees this morning and 59 degrees by noon.

It was a beautiful day at the Douglaston Salmon Run and about a dozen anglers took advantage of the excellent conditions. Most anglers were able to get into Steelhead today. Ones and twos for the most part with a couple anglers doing better than that and a couple anglers striking out with Steelhead, but being very satisfied with the Smallmouth bass success that they had. One fortunate angler was even able to bring an Atlantic to hand. Not a huge one (maybe in the 4-5 lb range) "but everyone is a great one."
