9 AM and 4 PM consolidated River Patrol fishing report: CFS 335 at the dam, CFS 430 at the Pineville gauge - water temperature a cool 48 degrees this morning - air temperature started out at 49 degrees early this morning and gradually rose to its current 61 degrees - a mostly overcast day, with light winds - this morning the lower section continued with a weeklong trend of being very slow (only one King was brought to hand there) - however, again, the further upriver you traveled, the better the action became - the upper section experienced an intense initial flurry of action at first light, which slowly subsided to a "slow pick" - guests trekking through the Welcome Center throughout the day provided individual reports, which were fairly positive, ranging from singles on Steelhead, through "five", to one lucky guided angler with double-digit hookups on Steelhead - covering water, technique, served them well - the late afternoon report was that action had generally died down throughout the run - however, these past few days, at the lower end, the few hours before dusk have witnessed a brief but very intense period of fish activity - the overnight low will be 53 degrees, with a 30% chance of showers late at night (good news!) - the forecast for tomorrow is: 60% chance of rain showers (better news!) early with overcast skies later in the day. High near 60F. Winds SW at 5 to 10 mph.

If you happened to be in the right spot at the right time, you did well. If not? Not so good and the latter was the more common report from our anglers today. A mid-afternoon flurry up high and then little action. Afternoon reports from the lower end were not encouraging. It seems like we have a very good day and then that is followed by a challenging day. If that is the case, tomorrow ought to be a very good day. Not a fishing report but we would like to inform our anglers that one of our guests took an unfortunate fall in the river at which time he lost his wedding ring. A ring that was once his father nd which had been passed from father to son. It's engraved with RS and JS to JR. Needless to say, the family would be most appreciative should anyone be able to recover the ring. At the time the angler was between the Wall Hole and The Flats.

It's hard to beat this weather. Especially at this time of year. It would be better if we had less wind because that caused a pretty significant leaf hatch that became problematic for our anglers, but in spite of the leaves most anglers had a decent day. Some browns, better numbers of Steelhead and some fresher Kings are still being brought to hand (including at least one that was "very silver). Similar to yesterday, early day was very good and this afternoon the upper section of the run lite up pretty good around mid-afternoon and the lower end was productive as well. It's good seeing decent numbers of Steelhead in the run.

Another spectacular weather-day on the Douglaston Salmon Run. The fish that entered the run yesterday evening/night made their way to the mid and upper sections this morning and provided good action for our anglers. The lower section was good at first light but things slowed when the sun hit the water. Afternoon reports from the mid to upper sections was that there "was constant action" with anglers getting into multiple fish. Primarily Steelhead but with some fresh salmon in the mix Afternoon reports from the lower section of the river were similar to that of the upper section report with excellent fishing being reported.

Much better action on the run today. Still some fresh Kings being taken and the Steelhead bite improved in a major wy today. The fish that were sighted at the lower end yesterday evening made their way to the mid and upper section this morning providing our anglers with steady action that continued throughout the day. This afternoons report indicated that fishing was very good from the top end all the way down to the mid-section with most anglers getting into multiple Steelhead. The afternoon report from the lower section was also positive with "a steady pick throughout the afternoon. Messages of "doom and gloom" and "the sky is falling" are beginning to look misguided.

A challenging day for most angers today. That being said, others did reasonably well with a couple nice browns, some steelhead, and a few Kings (on the fresh side). At the end of the day, river patrol indicated that some Steelhead were witnessed coming into the lower section of the run with anglers "hooking up pretty good." Where those fish will be in the run will be determined by our anglers tomorrow.

A beautiful day on the run, but, unfortunately the fishing continues to be a challenge for our guest. Early morning in the mid-to upper section saw some action and the reports from this afternoon indicated a few Coho, Kings, Steelhead and an Atlantic being brought to hand. River patrol this afternoon reported sighting about a dozen Kings in various location in the lower section of our run. Tomorrow looks to be another beautiful day and we are hopeful that the presence of Steelhead shows some sign of improvement.

With the fishing seeing a little bit of a dry spell lately, today was hopefully a glimpse of better things to come. Anglers had their work cut out for them while battling colder temps, wind and leaves. We finally saw a glimpse of Steelhead working their way into the run along with some late but very fresh Kings. Also showing their presence were the odd Coho, Atlantic and Brown Trout. Not off the charts by any means but a good sign.   CFS at the dam is 335 CFS at Pineville is 430

A challenging day on the run. Good water temperature (50 degrees), good water flow (about 500 cfs), and plenty of eggs in the river, but the Steelhead are proving to be elusive. That being said, I did get reports of multiple angers hooking (but not landing ) multiple steelhead. 0 for five and zero for four, for example. But clearly, this was the exception to the rule. Most struggled to get into multiple fish. We are seeing an increasing umber of Atlantics being hooked, however. At least four Atlantics were brought to hand by various anglers.

To say that our anglers had a challenging day is, perhaps, an understatement. A good many of the anglers that I spoke with spent the day fishing hard with little to show for their efforts. There are still a few salmon around, but very few. Steelhead (and Browns) that had been making a limited showing of late, seemed to be playing hide and seek today. But in spite of the challenge, it was a beautiful Fall day.

Evening Fishing Report: The changing weather brought mixed results on the run today. A couple of anglers had success at the bottom of the run, with several Kings brought out and Steelheads landed. The upper end of the run saw some activity with Kings and Steelheads landed. In the middle, River Patrol didn't see and Kings landed but a Brown and Steelhead were brought to hand. The water temp was 52F. The weather for tonight evening clouds will give way to clearing overnight. Slight chance of a rain shower. Low 37F. Winds S at 5 to 10 mph. For tomorrow the weather will be a mix of clouds and sun in the morning giving way to a few showers during the afternoon. High 52F. Winds SSW at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 30%.

Most angers were challenged today. Fewer fresh salmon are coming into the run and those that are here are in spawning mode. There are better numbers of trout (Steelhead and Browns) showing up. Not great numbers by any means, but encouraging numbers. Two season pass holders that I spoke with at the end of the day each got into multiple Steelhead and one had the good fortune of bring an Atlantic Salmon to hand. Rain in the forecast next week may well have a positive impact of the numbers of fish in the run.

Todays action on the run was a bit of a mixed bag. Overall it was a tough pick but fish were brought to hand by the anglers who put in the time. The higher water levels weren't particularly helpful with most anglers by limiting their fishable water and making it easier for fish to cruise on by undetected. A few Kings, the odd Coho, a rare Atlantic and a few Steelhead made an appearance today. CFS at the dam is 750 and will drop to 500 at 9PM CFS at Pineville is 929

The heavy rain that was forecast for today, thus far, has not materialized. Perhaps things were different in our larger drainage area (Tug Hill, etc.). A short downpour and some showers kept many anglers off the run and therefore it was difficult to get a representative sampling of the quality of the fishing. From what we could assess, there are fish around (particularly on the edges), with a mix of Kings nd better numbers of trout (Steelhead and Brown Trout)
 
At the time of this posting (6:15 PM) the flow from the dam is scheduled to remain at 1200 cfs through tomorrow night at Midnight and the current flow at Pineville is 1340 cfs (which indicates that at this point there is not much runoff).

Similar to yesterday, the top of the run saw good action this morning and again, around mid-afternoon, the upper section of the run came much more active with multiple and steady hookups. The middle section had fish and some fish being brought to hand, but, relatively quiet compared to the upper section. Afternoon reports indicated that "fresher" Kings were moving into the lower section of the runout of the estuary.

From our mid-section down, fish were still being brought to hand while the estuary was described as "very quiet."

AM Fishing Report - Reports from our River Patrol this morning indicated another quiet start to the day.  With Columbus Day behind us, it seems safe to say that we’re most likely soon approaching the conclusion of Salmon season.  So far this morning, first light seemed to be the most productive, but overall rather light fish activity.  The upper sections of the property reporting a light activity, with a few trout hooked in the mix, but predominantly reporting kings. Middle and lower sections with kings reported as a ‘slow but steady pick’.

3 PM River Patrol fishing report: although the AM report was "very slow" all along the entire run, apparently that was not entirely the case at some specific locations as all morning I saw a procession of guests with their salmon, and a guide reported that about mid-morning the fish activity changed from very, very slow to double-digit hookups on fresh Kings - perhaps the pod of salmon in the North channel decided to make a small run into the river - the lower section again reported "very slow" action this afternoon, mostly spawning Kings - just upriver was also "slow" - however, beginning about 1:30 PM or so, fish movement and angler activity gradually picked up in the middle section {"fish in holes more aggressive"}, resulting in reports of hooking up on primarily Kings - upper section also reported an uptick in action, Kings, with an eight pound Steelhead recently brought to hand there - the forecast for tomorrow is: Rain showers early with some sunshine later in the day.

Jack Kings. Coho, mature Kings, some browns, Steelhead and a beautiful domestic rainbow were all in the mix today. It's nice to see that there are still decent numbers of Coho in the run. They seem to be staying around longer than in recent year. Anglers that put in the work and time are still finding success. Not "off the hook" numbers but plenty of fish to keep everyone occupied and happy. A late day report indicated that decent numbers of fish were moving into the lower end of the run and that should prove beneficial for tomorrow.

Probably the coolest start we’ve had yet, with air temperatures in the 30’s this morning, and a reported water temperature of 52 F.  Initial reports from the upper end of the property this morning indicated a bit more activity than that of the lower end.   The lower section of the property and estuary reported very little fish movement, with just a few reports of Kings being landed.  Middle & upper sections of the property seeing just a bit more action, predominantly smaller ‘jack’ kings. Overall; of the fish hooked so far this morning, it seems anglers are still having a rather tough time keeping them on considering  the flows.

River Patrol evening fishing report: Overall, todays movement on the run was definitely on the "slow to moderate" side of things but the middle to upper end of the run saw a "fair" push of fish in the late afternoon. Reports of mostly Kings with a few odd Cohos mixed in with even an Atlantic and Steelhead making an appearance. Anglers who put in the time and miles on their feet were definitely rewarded with fish but no means a "day to remember." Lets see what tomorrow brings. CFS at the dam is 500 CFS at Pinevill is 700
