Overcast skies in the morning gave way to sunny skies in the afternoon. Coincidentally, fishing action was reported as being better in the morning than it was this afternoon. That being said, this afternoon's fishing was, by any measure, still very good. Numerous anglers that I spoke with reported becoming exhausted by playing large numbers of fish. Mostly Kings, but solid number of Coho as well. A few browns and Steelhead added to the mix. Late this afternoon, the lower section of the run was winning top honors for the most action although the mid-and upper-sections were reporting moderate anglers present and moderate to good fishing success.

Seems like for most of our anglers, you couldn't ask for much better fishing.  While the day had it's ups and downs, most of the run reported fairly good success throughout the day.  This afternoon our river patrol indicated light angling pressure in the upper sections of the property, but fishing consistently, with fish steadily moving through.  Middle sections of the property reported a moderate amount of angling pressure with a mix of Kings and Cohos moving through slowly.  Lower sections of the property indicated the most angling pressure, as well as the most success, catching a mix of both king and Cohos.  It's certainly been quite a year for the Atlantic salmon, with one lucky season pass holder (pictured below) bringing his first to hand this afternoon, fishing the the middle section of the run.

Another nice weather day and the fishing wasn't bad either. Not quite the action of yesterday, but all things are relative. Today was still a very good day with no complaints from our anglers and no shortage of fish movement, hooked fish, and fish brought to hand. A higher concentration of Kings than we have had of late, but there are still plenty of nice-sized Coho in the mix. This afternoons fishing reports indicate that the lower section of the run was the most active with a good amount of hookups. We also had reports of fish moving jumping and moving up from the estuary.

Reasonable temperature, overcast skies, and little wind were the weather factors for the day. Add to that excellent movement of fish throughout the day and we had a day that "it's hard to ask for anything more." Section of the run to fish? Pick your poison. Top to bottom, the reports from our anglers were that fishing was consistently good regardless of the section of the run one was fishing or the particular location (hole) within that section. Kings mostly, good numbers of Coho, with little reports of trout. Significantly more fish were hooked than were brought to hand, but we're talking about, in many instances, double-digit hook ups. I had one regular season pass holder leave around 1:00 say "For the first time this year, I got tired of hooking fish." Another season pass holder, when asked how the fishing was, replied, "If I had to use one word it would be steady. "Steady, consistent good fishing throughout the day, throughout the run.

It's hard to beat this weather, especially as we near the final week of September.  Fishing this morning proved to be a bit more productive than this afternoon, but overall, activity today has seemed to improve quite a bit regardless.  Reports from the upper sections of the property indicated minimal angling pressure, with some fish reported moving through once in a while.  The middle section reported a bit more angling pressure, and a bit more action.  Anglers have reported a majority of fish being kings, but it seems there have been a fair amount of Coho.  Lower sections of the property reported similar activity to that of the middle section this afternoon with fish consistently moving up and through.

Nearly a carbon copy report of yesterday afternoon. Honestly, the weather couldn't be nicer. But like yesterday, the number of fish that guests have encountered varies greatly throughout the run. The middle of the run has been most productive while the upper and lower sections have reported a few fish but in general are fairly slow. The estuary reports good numbers of fish but they seem content to stay where they are. Kings continue to be the predominant species caught but a handful of cohos and a lone brown also made an appearance in River Patrol's report.
Flow from the dam remains at 350 cfs through midnight tomorrow and the current flow at Pineville 447 cfs.

One couldn't ask for nicer weather, but the day could have been improved with a little better fishing. Not that it was horrible. Some anglers had what they described as "very, very good" while others struggled to bring a fish to hand. It was another one of those days that if you happened to be in the right spot you did well. If not, things were more difficult. The day started with the estuary loaded with fish, the expectation that they would make their way into the run, and then they changed their mind and, seemingly made their way back to the lake. An exciting note is that at least two Atlantics were in the mix. (One was pictured in this mornings reports). No particular section of the run won top honors for "best fishing" and so, as is often the case, don't fall in love with one spot and change locations as needed Flow from the dam remains at 350 cfs through midnight tomorrow and the current flow at Pineville 453 cfs

The better part of the day consisted of cloudy overcast skies which gave way, about mid-afternoon to mostly sunny skies. One would have thought that the weather this morning (add in cooler temperatures) would have resulted in better fishing success, but that was not the case. Most anglers that I spoke with struggled this morning. There were exceptions to the rule where some anglers happened to be over a cooperative pod of salmon, but that was the exception. This afternoon with the sun out, fishing conditions did not change very much. Most sections of the run reported light fish movement with the exception being at the very top of the run we had better numbers of fish (mostly Coho) moving through. This afternoon we did receive a report of fish porpoising in the estuary and numbers of salmon making their way into the run.

PM Fishing Report:  This afternoon's fishing slowed a bit from the morning's activity in part due to the decreased cloud cover, keeping fish in the deeper pools and reducing the movement of fish upstream.  As has become the norm so far this season, Kings were by far the most plentiful fish brought to hand, but a few Cohos and Steelhead made their presence known.  Tomorrow's weather should be similar to today with lows in the mid 50s, highs hovering around 70, and a slight chance of rain. The flow continues to be 350 cfs from the dam scheduled thru midnight tomorrow.

Evening Report:  Reports from this afternoon proved to be fairly solid from the upper stretches thru the lower river.  With the past (2) mornings cooler temperatures, the fishing certainly picked up.  Many clients were able to get into a fish, if not several.  Once again Kings were the most widely reported fish caught today, but Coho numbers are picking up, along with a steelhead and a beautiful Atlantic Salmon brought to hand as well.

Fishing picked up slightly from the morning, with the lower and middle sections reporting the most action over the course of the afternoon.  Reports from our River Patrol this afternoon indicated minimal angler presence in the upper sections of the runs, but those anglers present had slow pick at the few pods of kings moving through.  Middle sections of the run reported moderate action, with a mixture of kings and some cohos, and a few brown trout in the mix as well.  Lower sections of the property fished similar to the middle section, with a mixture of Kings and Cohos continuing to move out of the estuary and up into the river. Overall for mid September, things have remained fairly consistent.  While not overrun with fish, nor anglers, the fishing continues to be, good!

Yesterday the number of fish present on the run increased and our guest reports today suggest that the angling has continued to incrementally improve. In particular, the middle section of the run saw the most consistent action throughout the day. The lower end reported a trickle of kings and cohos with a fair number of kings jumping in the estuary. The upper end of the run had the slowest reports but perhaps the fish will reach that section by dusk.

Another mixed weather day with overcast skies giving way to sunshine and returning to overcast skies at the end of the day. Fishing reports were mixed as well with some anglers reporting seeing very few fish and others reporting good numbers of fish. Overall, there is no question that todays fishing was a marked improvement over the last several days. More fish were brought to hand, overall a lot more fish were sighted on the run, and the good news is that we had an increased presence of Coho mixed in with the Kings. The mid-section proved to be the place where the most action was. Two anglers that I spoke with that fished the middle section for a half day indicated that they saw around 30 salmon with a good mix of Coho (that blasted through of course). An encouraging day which makes us anxious to see what tomorrow might bring Water from the dam remains at 350 cfs and the current flow at Pineville is 470 cfs

Overcast skies, sunny skies, and back to overcast skies. The rain that we are all hoping for has not yet arrived, but it would be nice if we could get some. And more than a little. That could encourage an increased number of fish on the run. Today was a continuation of the past several. Some early morning movement of fish, but not in any great numbers. Anglers struggling to get into fish today and while a number were brought to hand, we are not seeing the numbers we saw a week or so ago. Again. It would be nice to get rain. Nights have been a little cooler with water temperatures in the mid-sixties. Water flow from the dam remains at 350 cfs and the flow at Pineville is 459 cfs

While we enjoyed cooler temperatures and an overcast misty morning, fishing has been pretty slow overall today. A few kings are sporadically trickling through the entire run but guests are working hard for their fish. We did receive one report of a single Coho hooked but no other species have been reported this afternoon. Looking ahead, we hope the cooer temps and showers forecasted later this week cool the water down and start to get things moving again. We'll be here to find out!

Evening Report:  This afternoon's action on the river basically mirrored reports from the morning.  From the upper stretches of the river, to the middle, down to the lower and estuary, fishing was reported as light to moderate, with Kings once again being the most reported catch.  There was an afternoon report of a Coho in the middle portion of the river.  The one significant difference between today and yesterday was fisherman were hooking greater numbers of fish as the bite seemed to be stronger today. With clouds and moderate temperatures, along with some rain in the forecast, tomorrow looks to provide good opportunities. The reported flow from the dam continues to be listed as 350cfs thru midnight tomorrow.

A cooler day with overcast skies was a nice relief from the hot weather we've had recently.  So while the temperatures improved, the fishing did not. As is frequently the case, some anglers were more successful than others, however that was the exception rather than the rule.  Most anglers struggled to bring fish to hand; the fish that were sighted were exclusively Kings.  Hopefully over the next several days with cooler temperatures and some expected rain in the forecast, we will see an increased Salmon presence in the run.   Current Water Flow from the Dam is scheduled to remain at 350 cfs thru midnight tomorrow and the current flow at Pineville is 459 cfs.

A bit of a reprieve from warmer temperatures, with plenty of overcast throughout the day.  Water temperatures reached around 70 F early this afternoon.  Hopefully we will continue to see some cooler weather, and water temperatures dropping with forecasts calling for nights in the low 60's and highs in the mid 70's.  Reports from our River Patrol this afternoon, indicated very little angling pressure and fish activity this afternoon throughout the run.  Overall, while not a banner day, the ratio of fish to number of anglers has continued to make for great days on the water.

The day started warm and sunny, changed to overcast with rain (with a couple scary cells moving through), then changed back to warm and sunny. The overcast skies may have contributed to the good fish movement we've had for the better part of the day. There have been some slow periods (particularly later in the day at the lower end), but most of the run (particularly the mid and upper sections) has experienced very good fish movement. One angler fished the mid section and couldn't believe he had the water to himself for the better part of the day and was able to get into double digit hookups with 8 fish brought to hand. Kings have been the "fish of the day" with no reports (thus far) of any other species being spotted. At mid-dy the water temperature was a warm 73 degrees. It's been a good day on the run with many happy anglers Water flow from the dam is 350 cfs through midnight tonight and the flow at Pineville is 442 cfs

Another hot day, but thankfully temperatures remained in the 80's.  Despite the heat, the fish activity still seems to maintaining its pace.  Reports continue to indicate things are a bit more productive in the early mornings, before the sun and heat take affect.  Anglers fishing the middle sections of the run in the early afternoon again saw the product of the sun instigating some movement.  Forecasts for tomorrow call for the possibility of rain in the later afternoon, with temperatures topping out at about 83 F by 2:00 PM.  The release from the dam is scheduled to remain at 350 CFS until tomorrow (9/7) at 11:59 PM.

With temperatures reaching into the mid to upper 80's, expectations weren't terribly high from the anglers who joined us today. It seems the mid day heat, and the high sun put some pressure on the fish we have had milling around the estuary. Anglers fishing the lower sections of the run were pleasantly surprised by the influx of activity as some pods made their way up river. Upper sections of the property eventually had their turn at these fish on the move, but with these fish on a mission, the opportunity was brief. Based on weather forecasts, we are looking at a bit of the same weather, and just a bit warmer than today. The release the dam is scheduled to remain at 350 CFS until midnight tomorrow (9/6).

The air heated up but the fishing cooled down. At least this afternoon. Nowhere near the number of fish were sighted nor brought to hand as we witnessed this morning Part of this was the bright sun, high temperatures and considerably less anglers on the water. A fish here and a fish there. One anger reported getting into and landing multiple Kings, but that was the notable exception. Tomorrow looks to be another warm one with temperatures in the mid-80's. Water from the dam will remain at 350 cfs until midnight tomorrow and the current flow at Pineville is 453 cfs.

Temperatures heated up a bit this afternoon and the bright sunlight may have contributed to slower fishing action this afternoon than that which was experienced this morning. That being said, reports from the anglers with which I spoke were able to get into a fish or two. Not everyone, of course, and, as usual, some anglers did better than a fish or two. Clearly, this morning was more productive than this afternoon, but this afternoon still provided sufficient action to keep angers busy and entertained. Water from the dam is currently 350 cfs where it will remain until midnight tomorrow. Water level at Pineville is 834 cfs (and dropping)
