A couple of anglers joined us on Sunday in hopes the bump in water flows from Saturday's rain would get the smallmouth moving. While things weren't as active as they hoped, they both were able to get a decent smallie or two on the line. The next white water release is scheduled for this Saturday where water flows will be at 750cfs from dawn until dusk. The 10 day forecast shows cooler than average temperatures and a good mix of rain and sun. We will see what the week ahead brings, stay tuned!

It hasn't been scorching hot, but it sure has been humid! A bit of rain and a few thunderstorms were enough to keep things in the 80's for most of the week. Low temperatures have remained in the low to mid 60's.  With a current release of 185 CFS from the dam, water temperatures have inched their way up a bit more hitting a high of 75 F this week.  Only a couple of anglers were able to get some time in on the water with the small windows of opportunity this week, but were successful in their outings, each landed several smallmouth ranging from 8-12 inches.  Forecasted temperatures for the week ahead call for lows in the 50's, and highs in the mid to upper 70's, and a whole lot of sun!

We are in the thick of summer and heat and humidity rule the days. Consistent with previous reports, the water temperature continues to hover in the low to mid 70s, resulting in sluggish fish and anglers alike. The reports from the last few days indicate there are smallmouth bass to be found but you need to work for them, covering ground in the early morning hours.

Things have cooled down just a bit, with some rain, and a few thunderstorms over the course of the week.  One angler joined us for a few outings this week, indicating a strong start to the week with a handful of bass ranging in size, but as the week progressed, the activity slowed a bit.  The release from the dam is currently at 350 CFS with a reported flow of 430 CFS at the Pineville gauge this afternoon.  Water temperatures have remained in the upper 60's for most of the week, with some days reaching into the low to mid 70's.  Forecasts for this weekend call some cooler overnights, but temperatures will reach around 80 F, with plenty of sun.

A bit of an increase in air temperatures this past weekend, reaching around 90 F brought water temperatures up with it. Water temperatures today began at a recorded 69 F and reached about 75 F by mid afternoon.  Given the heat, only 1 angler joined us for an outing yesterday, covering nearly the entire property, reporting decent small mouth action. Today a duo joined us for the greater part of the morning ahead of the mid day heat, and reported a total of 5 bass ranging from 10’’- 16’’. Forecasts for the week call for some cooler temperatures with a high probability of rain a few days.

weather over this past week has ranged from clear and sunny to torrential rains with lightning - nonetheless, a handful of our regulars have ventured out, primarily in the mornings, with results ranging from "nothing today" to a few medium-sized Smallmouth Bass still providing some action - flows dropped from 750 to 185 during this period, remaining at the lowest end the past several days - scheduled CFS bumps up to 750 will occur 5-6 August, as well as 2-3 September - worth checking out for the earliest salmon nosing into the river about those time frames

Heavy rains hit the DSR this morning and continued through the afternoon. It was one of those days we wish we had a rain gauge because it really came down! Water flows are on the rise but are still at a manageable 512cfs at the Pineville gauge. We are told areas to our south, in Mexico, NY, got several inches this morning. Even with all that water, we still had a couple anglers that couldn't sit home and had to try their hand after the weekend white water release. Between the two of them they landed a handful of nice smallmouth, but rain ended up driving them off the water late morning. It will be interesting to see what the next few days will bring with water flows and smallmouth bass activity!

Temperatures have remained in the 80's with a few days approaching the 90 F mark, making for a fairly quiet week on the run.  A couple of regular pass holders joined us for a few early morning outings, getting their fishing in before things got too hot for them, and the fish.  Overall, a few bass were reported by the duo, ranging from 13-15 inches.  Water temperatures have officially entered the 70's now with a high water temperature of 72 F recorded this week.  With a bit of rain forecasted over the weekend, we definitely hope to see things cool off a bit.

Fishing for smallmouth bass has been productive over the past several days. Our guests have enjoyed landing up to a dozen bass per outing with several bass in the 16-18" range still in the mix. Looking at the forecast ahead, we'd expect similar activity. Perhaps the whitewater release this coming weekend will move some more fish around in the system and improve the bite further. We remind all that we will be closed tomorrow 7/4 for the holiday. Happy Independence Day everyone!
