Despite the dropping temperatures, conditions started out pretty good.  One angler joining us right off the bat, to get his fishing in early this morning.  He was to bring a beautiful colored up buck this morning. His words "They are ALL good! But some are definitely better than others”. By the end of his outing, temperatures had steadily dropped, with the wind picking up quite a bit.  A few other season pass holders came in early this afternoon just at the beginning of the high winds, battling through it for a couple of hours.  They were each able to hook and bring a couple of fish to hand.  On their retreat back to the Welcome Center, one of the anglers wasn’t ready to call it a day, hitting another fish on his way back and continued to stick it out for quite a while. With temperatures continuing to drop, and anticipated to plummet below zero, DSR will be open for abbreviated hours on Saturday 1/15/22 and Sunday 1/16/22; Opening at 9:00 AM / Closing at 3:00 PM.
