September 14, 2023

9 AM River Patrol fishing report: CFS at the dam 350, CFS at the Pineville gauge 482, opening air temperature 59 degrees, water temperature 63 degrees, mostly cloudy skies that are gradually clearing up to sunshine later, dead calm, no forecasted precipitation for the AM - the estuary section reported fish ("Kings") moving at first light up into the run, however guest action was reported as "quiet" (no action) there - the lower section reported slow (some hookups) to moderate (hooking up, could be better) guest activity with Kings - as we begin to move into the upper section, fishing activity picked up a bit, probably due to fish that had moved in overnight and made it up there by first light - the predominate fish were Kings, with a solitary Steelhead in the mix - all sections of the run also reported fish moving through, with just a few seeming to hold in specific areas - featured today are Dennis (Texas shirt and sunglasses), with a very healthy Chinook ("King") salmon, who was guided by DSR Guide Brian Ferman of High Hook Guide Services; Mark (grey shirt) and Scott (flourescent green shirt) with a brace of nice Kings, guided by DSR Guide Troy Creasy of High Adventure Sportsfishing; and Luke (camouflage waders) guided by John Kopy of Little John's Guide Service
