Not a great day. Not a bad day, but all-in-all a good day to be fishing the DSR. Just about everyone that I spoke with were able to get into multiple Kings nd a good many were brought to hand. Warmer weather (after a chilly start) and plenty of sunshine contributed to the enjoyment of the day. A few more Steelhead are starting to show up as are a few more brown trout. It would be nice to get another push of some salmon in from the lower end and we'll wait and see. Water level is going down tonight and that will make things a bit more manageable.
 
Current flow from the dam will be 750 cfs untio 9:00 this evening when it will go to 500 cfs and the current flow at Pineville is 1010 cfs

9 AM River Patrol fishing report: CFS at the dam 750, CFS 1030 at the Pineville gauge (dropping slowly) - water temperature 54 degrees, air temperature 52 degrees, cloudless skies with brilliant sunshine, light winds - estuary section reported no fish activity . . . some anglers simply paddling around looking for fish . . . the lower section has very few anglers present, with little observable fish movement, therefore it is difficult to judge that section . . . middle section reported "relatively slow" fish movement and angler success, hookups are occurring however it remains very difficult to bring the large Kings to hand due to the current - the fish in this section are a mix of Kings and Cohos - as we travel upriver, the fish activity and angler success picks up incrementally to "steady movement, hot and heavy angler activity" - again, a mix of Kings and Cohos, with one Brown Trout hooked but not landed - typically, most of the action was at first light, with a slow down after the sun came up over the treeline - we currently have full day fishing passes for sale

Fishing, overall, was slower than yesterday, but after the numbers we witnessed yesterday that's not saying much. Today may have required greater fishing effort but from the anglers that I spoke with and what I have seen, fishing was very good today. Mostly Kings today with fewer Coho, but that's not surprising given the rate fish were moving through the run yesterday.
 
Water continues to drop, which is good, and the level looks like it will remain at 750 cfs (at least until 8:00PM tomorrow night when it'll go down to 130 cfs for three hours (probably doing some work at the power house)
 
Current flow from the dam is 750 cfs and the flow at Pineville is 1100 cfs

Well today was the day. Or at least one of those days, of which we hope there are more to come. The high water brought in the fish today and for the first time this season I feel it safe to say we had "a run." Fish poured into the run in jaw-dropping numbers throughout the day and have continued into this evening.
 
All are concerned as to what happens next with regard to the water level. Will it go down? How fast? Will it go up? How high? All questions whose answers we will wait for. The good news is that the rain has diminished and as has the water flowing into the reservoir and the flow at Pineville. Let's all keep our fingers crossed.
 
Current flow from the dam remains at 750 cfs and the flow at Pineville is 1420 cfs (and dropping).

Good movement early this morning, as has been the case of late. Slower movement and more difficult fishing after the initial flurry. And while in past days things might have remined slow until late afternoon/evening, things started cranking around 2:00 this afternoon. Heavy rain during the day triggered good fish movement .Reports of good numbers of Kings and Coho's entered the run and provided "off the hook" fishing for all anglers all afternoon and into the evening. I'm guessing anglers are going to be hesitant to leave the run today.

Today saw a "slight" uptick in movement on the run compared to the last few days. Depending on where you were and how much time you were willing to put in, you could be rewarded. Overall reports from today indicated the middle-upper section saw "slow" movement but a few fish were still brought to hand. The lower end actually had a "moderate but steady" flow of fish with a mixed bag of species such as Kings, Cohos, Browns and even a few more Atlantics made an appearance. Still getting word of good numbers of fish in the estuary milling around just waiting to run when they are ready. Rain is on the forecast tonight so things could get interesting over the next few days.

Although not a substantial uptick in movement, there was definitely enough to satisfy the anglers who happened to be in the right areas on the run. It seemed the middle to upper sections were seeing most movement with the lower end being a "slow but steady" trickle. A bit of a mixed bag with Kings, some Cohos, few Browns and even an Atlantic made an appearance. Reports of movement in the estuary gives hope that there could be an uptick in movement tomorrow.

Morning fishing report from River Patrol. The action seems to be a little patchy this morning depending on where you are. The top of the run is currently steady with a mix of kings and coho as well as a lone brown trout. However, just below that area was good for the first hour but has slowed down since the early going. This was also the trend observed in the middle of the run and now a slow pick of kings and cohos is continuing. Near the bottom of the run saw good action for the first two hours but has slowed down more recently, a few brown trout were reported here as well. The estuary reports decent pods of kings and coho but few fish are being brought to hand in that area.

Another good day to be fishing on the Douglaston Salmon Run.  Similar to the past several days, early morning indicated that the upper section had the upper hand, but fish were spread throughout the run and everyone that I spoke with were able to get into Kings, some  into nice-sized Coho, and a brown trout here and there.  As anglers were leaving the water this morning, most were smiling, some were dragging a bit, but all indicated that they had an enjoyable and worthwhile day.  Stormy weather that was forecast for this afternoon did not materialize and it ended up being a gorgeous day.  Mostly clear skies and very comfortable temperatures.  Much cooler temperatures over the next few days ought to put some fish on the move.  We'll have to wait and see.

All sections of the property indicated similar fish activity.

Nice cooler temperatures today and a mix of sun and clouds. Water temperatures are still on the high side with an early morning reading of 65 degrees getting to 69 by mid day. Very good fishing for the better part of the day and late morning into this afternoon it got much better than good. Very good movement of fish at the upper and lower end with Kings, a few browns, and more Coho than we have seen all season. Excellent fishing with persistent fish movement throughout the run. Late afternoon report from down low is that the estuary just below lower clay is "loaded." Today was by far the best day of the year and the prospects for tomorrow look excellent.

There weren't big numbers of fish around, but there are fish here. Primarily Kings, but a few browns as well. I saw a picture of a nice 30' brown that was brought to hand and released back into the run. Some action in the morning, a much slower pick through the better part of the day' and some better fish movement into the lower end that started around 4:30. So perhaps more fish will follow them in tomorrow. We'll wait and see. But it does appear that the mid-section might fish well in the morning.

9 AM River Patrol fishing report: CFS at the dam 370, CFS at the Pineville gauge 476 - air temperature early this morning was 64 degrees, and has risen to 71 as of this report - we started off partly cloudy at dawn, however skies have since completely cleared, with brilliant sunshine - at first light, and for a couple of hours, there was typically a flurry of activity throughout the entire run, all Kings, with one Brown Trout brought to hand in the upper section - the estuary beat reported "quite a bit" of fish jumping, with fish moving up into the river through the center and North channels - just upriver there were reports of fish milling around, some moving further upriver, some heading back downriver, with a decent amount of hookups, but few being brought to hand - middle section was comparatively slower as regards either fish movement or hookups - upper section saw good fish movement, with good angler hookups - again, once the sun came up over the trees, action slowed down dramatically throughout the run

Fish movement and angler success this afternoon seemed to be dictated by where you were on the run. It seemed movement on the upper end was pretty consistent from sunrise to sunset with most guests hooking a fair amount (nothing spectacular) and brining a few to hand. The lower section seemed to have a small but steady push of fish moving for the later half of the day with little pods of fish (1-3) moving up every few minutes and the few anglers who were down there took advantage. The middle section seemed to be quite slow, which makes to believe the fish at the upper end came in overnight and the fish in the lower end are moving in early on in the day. Only species reported were King Salmon. CFS at the dam is 370, CFS at Pineville is 476.

9 AM River Patrol fishing report: CFS at the dam 335, CFS at the Pineville gauge 453 - air temperature ranging from 61 degrees first thing this morning to 66 degrees as of this report - water temperature is also 66 degrees - overcast, with a thin ground fog, very light breezes - River Patrol in the upper section reported a good push of Cohos moving through that section first thing this morning, with multiple hook ups, but no fish brought to hand - River Patrol in the middle section reported primarily Kings (Chinook) on the move, small pods of three to four fish, with hookups, and one guest bringing two of three to hand - another guest in this section was able to bring both a King and a Brown Trout to hand - River Patrol in the lower section reported steady movement of small pods of fish, apparently Kings, into the river system, with relatively few anglers in the area - this movement of fish into the river should bode well for later action in the middle and upper sections

It was a beautiful day to be on the river but the fishing has slowed noticeably. There are still salmon around and a number made it to hand, but compared to the days over the weekend (especially Monday) it's a different ball game. It might have been that the high water we saw over the weekend brought in some fish that have now played out. We'll just have to see what the next several days bring.
 
Water remains at 335 cfs from the dam and the flow at Pineville is 459 cfs

Fish movement was a bit slower than we witnessed over the weekend, but there were still sufficient numbers of fish to keep anglers entertained and occupied. Morning was very good, a mid day slowdown nd then things picked up again iin the afternoon into the evening. A good number of salmon were brought to hand this evening. Not as many brown trout were sighted today as in past days but we are still encouraged by their presence. Water flow from the dam remains at 335 cfs and the current flow from Pineville is 476 cfs.

There was a flurry of activity this morning with Kings brought to hand. A Coho was landed in the upper section of the run. The afternoon saw thing taper off with a few jumpers in the Lower Clay. Activity picked up this evening with a light rain and cooler temperatures. Weather for tonight will be overcast with rain showers at times. Low 61F. Winds light and variable. Chance of rain 50%. Tomorrows weather should see showers early becoming less numerous later in the day. High 71F. Winds light and variable. Chance of rain 50%.

Another very good day on the run. Cooler temperatures and some occasional light rain made things very comfortable down on the run. As has been the pattern of late, the early hours of the morning proved best, but today the fishing was more than decent in the afternoon with anglers reporting good numbers of hook-ups and fish brought to hand. Water from the dam has not been updated and I assume it will remain at 350 cfs and the flow from Pineville is 442 cfs

Definitively more salmon on the run today than we have seen so far this season. Good numbers of fish were on the move and many anglers got into multiple fish. Some did better than others in bringing them to hand, but that is to be expected. Especially with these early season fish that for some reason, even in warmer water, seem particularly difficult to bring to hand. "Hooked five but didn't land any" was a typical statement. More good news is that multiple anglers reported seeing some brown trout in the mix.
 
At 6:00 PM this evening the flow from the dam dropped to 350 cfs and the current flow at Pineville is 814 cfs (but it should be dropping shortly)

CFS at the dam is 350 until 9 PM tonight, at which time it will be bumped to 750 (yes!) - at 6 PM, on 4 September, the flow will go back down to 350 again - CFS at the Pineville gauge is 500 as of the time of this report - the air temperature started out in the low 50s this morning, then drifted up to the mid 70s - we had hazy, through mostly cloudy, then partly cloudy skies today, with sunshine, and cooling breezes - water temperature started at 65 degrees this morning - 54 guests trickled in from early morning to mid afternoon - as guests started leaving we received reports that about one in five of the guests hooked up with a salmon, but only one was actually brought to hand - typically, early season salmon tend to be larger, and are certainly very scrappy!  Interestingly, one of our off duty employees hooked into a "very large" Brown Trout, had it close enough at hand to identify it, but was unable to land the trout . . . Overnight low will be 61 degrees, with the forecast for tomorrow as: Intervals of clouds and sunshine. High 84F. Winds SSE at 5 to 10 mph.
