Things got cold, real fast!  Minimal winds, and no rain, but we did see our first snow flakes briefly this afternoon.  A few dozen anglers joined us over the course of the day, fighting the cold and covering a considerable amount of water from the sounds of it.  A majority of these anglers indicated having landed a few fish each, but they didn't come easy. Upper sections reported the lightest angling pressure today, with the the middle in lower sections the most heavily fished.  Overall, anglers saw the most success in the middle sections of the run, with a couple of brown trout reported in the mix along with the steelhead caught today.

Things cooled down quite quickly, with temperatures dropping into the 40's last night and only reaching a high around 45 F today.  Paired with steady rain, it made for quite a bitter day.  Given the conditions, today was the lightest crowd we've seen in some time.  Those that joined us indicated a fairly a tough pick, most covering significant ground and reporting several steelhead landed, but you really had to grin and bear it.  I think it's safe to say, it's officially steelhead season. The current dam release is scheduled to remain at 335 CFS until midnight tomorrow (10/31).  Temperatures are forecasted to continue to drop, with a low of 34 F at the time of sunrise tomorrow.

29 Oct '23 AM fishing report: certainly a damp chill in the air this morning as a light drizzle began to fall at daybreak. River patrol reports that fishing is slow overall from top to bottom of the run. Most of the fish that have been reported hooked or caught have been steelhead but a few fresh kings were also caught in the upper end of the run. The forecast calls for the steady light rain to end near 11AM with potential for showers remaining throughout the rest of the day. Beginning tomorrow (10/30/23), we will move back to posting one evening fishing report per day. 29 Oct '23 PM fishing report: CFS at the dam 335, CFS at the Pineville gauge 512, air temperatures were in the mid 40s, overcast, drizzly throughout the day, light winds to dead calm - the guest presence dwindled throughout the day as guests came off the run, however there were still reports of both Steelhead and fresh Chinook ("King") salmon being brought to hand in limited numbers ("slow" action overall), with very specific and limited areas producing fairly decent action, primarily with Steelhead. Today was the last day of Premium and tiered early access - effective tomorrow, 30 Oct '23, the procedure will be as follows: all categories of guests will line up on the East side of the ticket booth (near the restrooms), in the order in which they arrived at the line; beginning at 15 minutes before the posted opening time (6:30 AM through 4 Nov), we will begin processing all categories of guests; all processed guests will then stage in the breezeway pending their release; all categories of guests are released to the river at the posted opening time (6:45 AM 30 Oct - 4 Nov).

The morning broke with a heavy overcast and a small front having just pushed through. The rest of the day has a small chance of precipitation but nothing that should trouble anglers too badly. Unfortunately, leaves are plaguing anglers this morning and likely affecting the bite too. The upper and middle sections of the run both reported light angling pressure with only a few sparse hookups on steelhead. The lower end of the run has more angling pressure but a few more steelhead being caught there as well. Overall though, all anglers are working for their bites. PM fishing report: for most of the afternoon, there were blue skies and brilliant sunshine, however the wind picked up, occasionally gusting fairly hard - windblown leaves saturating the river system continued to be an obstacle for our guests, with only a few of these reporting any action on the run - "slow" would be the overall description of this afternoon We do have some upcoming lodge availability for early November, visit https://douglastonsalmonrun.com/lodging/  or call us at 315-298-6672 ext. 0 to reserve.

Overall, a tough day for the rather light crowd of anglers we had join us. Despite the overcast, it was a warm day, with water temperatures rising from 53F to 55F by mid afternoon. Winds were minimal, but the leaves were reported to be problematic by a number of anglers. Reports from our River Patrol indicated extremely light angling pressure throughout the entire run, with a few steelhead being caught, but few and far between this afternoon. As we continue into the weekend, temperatures are forecasted to drop with a bit of rain anticipated as well. The current dam release is scheduled to remain at 335 CFS until 11:50 PM tonight (10/27).  Please be sure to check safewaters.com/facility/lighthouse-hill for updated dam release scheduling this weekend.

AM Fishing Report: It was dry at the opening, but around 8:30AM a cell moved in and has given us rain showers and gloomy conditions. The good news is that it's forecast to be a brief period of rain and sunshine and warmer temperatures should be arriving later this morning. Early reports from the run are very similar to what we have experienced the past several days. Light to moderate angler pressure, light fishing success with the primary species being Steelhead (but with a few "fresher" salmon still around). Hopefully, when the sun comes out the activity will kick up a bit.

PM Fishing Report:  Overcast skies with temperatures in the mid 50s, along with a south-westerly wind, and sporadic drizzle seemed to do little to entice an increase from this morning's fishing report.  Angler volume remained low, (plenty of space), and angler hook ups was basically the same with steelhead the lone species of fish brought to hand.  The steelhead seemed content staying in the pools / pocket water with little sign of moving further up river.  Tomorrow's temperatures will approach 70 with SE winds, light rain scheduled thru the morning hours, and overcast conditions the remainder of the day. Flow from the Dam continues to be 335 cfs thru midnight tonight.  The flow from Pineville is currently 525 cfs and holding steady.

A bit of a damp and dreary start to the day, with on and off showers this morning.  Water temperatures this morning were a reported 56 F.  Reports from our River Patrol indicate the lightest angling pressure in the upper most section of the property, and fairly low pressure throughout the rest of the run.  Some of the upper sections of the property have reported moderate activity, with the middle and lower sections reporting minimal success from the anglers present, all having reported only steelhead being caught.

Moderate temperature into the 60's and overcast skies to begin the day are the conditions on the run this morning. Similar to yesterday, relatively light angler pressure, hookups and fish movement through most of the run. The exception is that there has been reported moderate fishing success at the lower section of the run with some movement of Steelhead and Kings up into the run.

AM Fishing Report: A great day to be out fishing. Overcast skies that will give way to sunshine and highs in the upper 60's. All we would need to make things perfect were better numbers of fish being brought to hand. Early reports from throughout the run, regardless of which section, was that angling pressure was light, relatively few fish were being hooked/brought to hand, and the primary species in the run is Steelhead (with a few fresher Kings in the mix). The day is still young so we will just have to wait to see how things develop. Water from the dam remains at 350 cfs and the flow at Pineville is 470 cfs (and dropping steadily.)

What a difference a day can make with weather. Yesterday's rain moved through and gave way to a beautiful crisp fall day here in Pulaski. So far this morning the fishing remains similar to yesterday. Most areas of the run have reported slower action. However, in the middle section, River Patrol reported moderate action for the anglers there. A few kings are still in the mix in the lower end of the run with the rest of the reports all being steelhead only. Please use caution when wading as the river is puffed up quite a bit with runoff from this weekend's rain. We expect that the water levels will continue to recede throughout the day as we dry out. Note the increase in flow is only from runoff, the dam release has not changed from 335cfs.

AM Fishing report: Intermittent showers and colder temperatures sure makes today feel like perfect Steelhead weather. Water temperature this morning was 51 degree also contributes to the notion of perfect Steelhead weather. Reports from the river suggest that throughout the run the anglers pressure is light, a mix of Steelhead and "fresher" Kings (with Steelhead being the more prominent species), and while not strong numbers of fish being brought to hand, our anglers are bringing some to hand. The day is young and with these light showers, we are hoping that the action will pick up before days end.

Tomorrow's temperatures are listed to be in the low to mid 40s with light to moderate NW Winds and sporadic rain not expected to exceed 1/4".

The rain overnight did puff the river up slightly, +60cfs reported at the Pineville gauge. The river is still wadable but do use caution. So far, the forecast is better than expected for the day. We experienced a light drizzle for about 30 minutes earlier this morning but other than that it has been dry. More light rain is forecasted for this afternoon. This morning's fishing report from River Patrol was consistently reported as good from one end of the run to the other. The upper portion of the run is nearly all steelhead while the bottom of the run is more of a mix with several kings, an Atlantic salmon, and a brown trout also being reported. With the leaves changing it is making for a very scenic backdrop and all in all seems like a great day to be out fishing. This morning's water temperature was reported at 54 degrees. We currently have Full Day passes for sale and expect to have some Afternoon Passes for sale at 1pm. If you're thinking about making the trip here, we do have lodging available in the coming week.

Mixed reports from anglers today, seeming to be dependent on the time and place for most. Plenty of fish present, but more holding rather than moving through. A bit of intermittent wind, but overall a pretty ideal day to be on the water, with plenty of overcast and moderate temperatures.  Reports from our River Patrol indicated the upper sections of the property having had light angling pressure, with some kings and steelhead.  Middle sections of the property reported the greatest angling pressure, with a slow pick at primarily steelhead holding in the runs.  Lower sections of the property, reported similar to that of the upper section, with light angling pressure and few fish moving through. - ATTENTION GUESTS : Beginning tomorrow October 20 until October 29, our hours of operation will shift to an opening time of 5:45 AM, and a closing time of 7:00 PM.  Please review check-in and release times by visiting - https://douglastonsalmonrun.com/release-schedule/

Sunshine for the morning and cloud cover in the afternoon (but no rain) were the conditions our anglers experienced this afternoon and early evening. Most anglers that I spoke with had a good day down on the run with a mix that consisted predominately of Steelhead and King salmon. The Kings that were brought to hand were described as fresh from the lake and less colored up than they have been of late; the Steelhead as chrome and difficult to land. Water temperatures in the high 40's and lower 50's are pretty ideal for these fish. A number of Atlantic Salmon were also brought to hand. Not sure of the exact number (probable a half dozen or so) but clearly more than the one or two of days past. Additionally, bright, larger females are becoming part of the mix.

It's starting to look a lot like steelhead season!  Today marked the first day of our reduced angler capacity, going from a max of 250 anglers, to now 125 anglers.   Many of our regular steelheaders eagerly joined us for their first outings, and most reported no shortage of fresh, chrome, steelhead. Overall, it seemed the morning today fish a bit better than this afternoon.  Upper and lower most sections of the property reported the least angling pressure this afternoon, with the middle section reporting the greatest angling pressure.  Only a few anglers reported salmon today, with a majority of anglers bringing steelhead to hand, with the occasional brown trout.

It's certainly hard to beat this weather!  While the water fluctuation, and bright blue skies made things a bit tough, it proved to be another productive day for most of our anglers.  Steelhead have continued to take over the show, with the number of steelhead again significantly exceeding the number of salmon brought to hand today.  Upper sections of the property this afternoon reported minimal angling pressure, with moderate action. Middle sections of the property indicated good action, with mostly steelhead, but also noted some fresh kings moving through.  The lower sections of the property reported similar to that of the middle section, having moderate action on primarily steelhead.  Water temperatures this afternoon were a recorded 57 F.  The dam release is currently scheduled to remain at 335 CFS until midnight tonight (10/13).

Another pretty good day on the water for most of our anglers.  Honestly, it's hard to remember the last 'bad' day we've seen in quite a while. We've certainly seen quite an uptick in the number of trout, and decline in the number of fresh salmon coming into the river.  Reports from our river patrol indicated very little angling pressure in the upper sections of the property, with a minimal number of fishing moving through.  Middle sections of the property reported the most angling pressure, with predominantly steelhead.  Lower sections of the property reported the light angling pressure, with minimal fish activity.  The dam release is currently scheduled to remain at 500 CFS until midnight tonight (10/12) - please check safewaters.com/facility/lighthouse-hill for updated dam release information.

A gloomy day with chilling temperatures, periods of rain, and cloudy skies gave way to an afternoon of ample sunshine and warmer temperatures. Today was what I would call a "transition day."  While the reports indicate that while there are still plenty of salmon still in the river, the  primary species, by far, that was brought to hand were Steelhead.  While things can change again, it does seem that we are transitioning from a fishery where salmon are the dominant species to one in which the Steelhead is dominant.  Not a bad thing. The scheduled flow from the dam dropped to 500 cfs at noon today, through midnight tomorrow and the current flow at Pineville is  666 cfs and dropping. Pictured below is a happy angler that landed some nice Steelhead in the morning and this beautiful brown trout in the afternoon.  What a fishery!!

October 10, 2023

PM Report:  Todays weather seemed more like Steelhead season than Salmon Season.   High temperature barely made it above 50 and overnight lows in the 40's.  Add to that overcast, grey skies and you had Steelhead weather.  It must be that the fish were taking note as the number of Steelhead brought to hand today increased somewhat.  Everyday, there seems to be an increase in the number of chrome Steelhead. Not great numbers, but good numbers of salmon continue to be brought to hand despite the somewhat higher water level.  An occasional brown trout and even a less frequent Atlantic showed up today as well (Including the nice male pictured below). The lack of rain today is positive news as it suggests that the flow from the dam may not increase and, (keeping or fingers crossed), might drop.  At this point the scheduled flow has not been updated and continues to call for 750cfs through midnight tonight,  Water flow at Pineville is currently 1040 cfs and is dropping.

With significant rain fall yesterday, we were left with quite a bit of residual runoff throughout the day.  Regardless of the 350 CFS dam release, the Pineville gauge remained around 1000 CFS, and only began to drop towards the end of the day.  Conditions may not have been optimal with high water impacting the wade-ability, but most of our anglers persevered and managed to do pretty well.  Upper sections of the property reported the lightest angling pressure (nearly nonexistent), most likely due to the accessibility.  Middle sections of the property reported minimal angling pressure, with 'plenty of fish', and picking up pace as the afternoon went on.  Lower sections reporting the most angling activity, and moderate fish activity, with mostly kings being reported. ________________________________________________________________ The dam release is scheduled to increase from 350 CFS to 750 CFS tonight at 8:00 PM.  For update dam release information please check - https://safewaters.com/facility/lighthouse-hill.  Please note that DSR will remain open for fishing, unless the RELEASE FROM THE DAM is 2,000 CFS or greater. ________________________________________________________________

It's certainly hard to believe it's already October.  Before we know it, we'll be seeing our first solid  'leaf hatches' of the season!  Overall today, it seems that the fish remain plentiful, with most anglers indicating countless fish caught.  One angler described it as an 'epic day'. You know it's a good day on the river, when you run of tackle. Reports from the upper sections of the property indicated the lightest angling pressure, with a good number of fish moving through (predominantly kings).  Middle sections of the run, echoed the reports from the upper sections, with light angling pressure steady movement, and a few steelhead in the mix.  Lower sections of the property indicated the highest volume of anglers, and moderate fish activity, with a quick flurry of Coho flying through early this afternoon.
