Yesterday's Report

August 13, 2022

A half dozen anglers took advantage of a truly beautiful day and joined us on the run today. "Small fry" is all that was reported. An early morning angler fished until mid-morning and did see any evidence of what he was looking for and that was the same report of a couple season pass holders that fished the early evening hours. One did report that while looking downriver for any tell tale sign, he noticed significant splashing in the shallows downstream form his location. He got very excited and then disappointed (sort of) to realize that what he was witnessing were three deer splashing across the river!!!
 
Flow from the dam remains at 185 cfs and the current flow at Pineville is 240 cfs.

Typical of this time of the year, there have been isolated salmon caught upriver already - today, two guests fished the run - one fished the center section during the morning into very early afternoon, but did not either see or hook into any fish - the other guest saw a solitary salmon splashing upriver this morning, took a break during the afternoon, and came back in the early evening to try again, without any luck - CFS at the dam 185, CFS at the Pineville gauge 240 - alternating periods of overcast and (mostly) clear skies meant bright sunshine most of the day - temperatures in the high 60s and low 70s most of the day, with cooling breezes - overnight low will be 50 degrees - tomorrow will be sunny, high 76 degrees, winds 5 to 10 mph - the good news in the next week is that daytime temperatures will be in the mid 70s, overnight lows will be low 60s, and there is a 39% - 41% chance of rain Monday through Thursday - other than biological imperatives, cooling temperatures, overcast and rain, are two of the three general triggers for salmon to enter the river - now we need increased water flow as the last trigger . . .
 
we have made the nine month seasons passes, for those passholders who had acceptable pictures uploaded to their accounts - you may pick those up on your first visit - if you are a season pass holder (nine or 6.5 months) please check your accounts to ensure that you have a passport quality picture uploaded (head and shoulders only, full on, face illuminated, no hat, no sunglasses, plain background) as this is the picture we will use to print your pass - please, no "action photos" as we generally cannot use those

Cooler temperatures brought four anglers to the run today. A few bass and some Fall fish were the only fish that were brought to hand today.

No guests fished the run today - CFS 185 at the dam, 248 at the Pineville gauge - air temperatures remained in the mid to high 70s all day - an overcast sky, with nice breezes, made for a welcome relief from the brutal heat and humidity combination of the past few weeks . . . the overnight low will be a refreshing 58 degrees, with the forecast for tomorrow as: Partly cloudy skies. High 77F. Winds NW at 5 to 10 mph.
 
The Estuary Lodge will very soon be opening up for booking 12 through 15 September - please call us should you be interested in booking this lodge
 
if you are having difficulty obtaining online daily access fishing passes, for the day(s) you wish to fish, here are some potential workarounds:
 
please note that we begin sales of online daily access fishing passes, for the forthcoming season, in mid-January of each year - please plan accordingly;
 
continue to monitor our website for the day(s) desired as, on occasion, individuals surrender their pass(es) and we post them back to the website;
 
renting an available DSR lodge allows you to purchase daily access fishing passes, up to the number of lodge guests, from the day of check-in through the day of check-out;
 
obtaining the services of a DSR guide will enable you to purchase daily access fishing pass(es) up to the maximum number of the guided party, for the day(s) the party is being guided;
 
you may want to research the benefits of a season pass, the greatest of which is guaranteed access every day that the pass is active, as well as four coupons each season that guarantee access for up to four guests, who may purchase daily access fishing passes for a reduced amount;
 
we will have limited opportunities for walk-up full, and afternoon only, daily access fishing passes - on the day(s) you wish to fish, be here at our posted opening time and obtain a numbered ticket (similar to the one you would obtain at the barber shop or any other location where there is an abundance of first-come, first-served, customers) at the kiosk located in front of our Ticket Office - after we have processed all categories of guests, we will determine if there are any tickets remaining (no-shows) and issue any available.

One angler hit the run early to beat the heat and the rain and unfortunately it seems it was too hot - even for the fish! The morning water temperature was 75F. We had a brief down pour mid afternoon that left a few puddles in the parking lot but skies are already clearing.

One angler stretched his legs and had the run to himself all morning. While the fishing was fairly quiet (1 smallmouth bass reported), the scenery did not disappoint. Now that August is here and salmon season is on our doorstep, we can begin counting the days until the first salmon is caught! Will it be you?
