Yesterday's Report

December 2, 2022

While it is usually the case that after a period of high water, once it drops, it takes a day or so for the fish to re-settle and become active. That was not the case today. Many anglers that I spoke with today, while admitting that the water was still a bit high (1200 cfs or so), the fishing was excellent. Double-digit hookups was not the exception and while there had been some concern that the high water might have "washed" our fish out, that was simply not the case. More than one angler made mention of the fact that "There are a lot of fish down there."

December 1, 2022

Much to everyone's surprise, we've jumped back down to a dam release of 750 CFS as of 7:00 AM this morning (12/1).  The dam release was adjusted from 3000 CFS to 1200 CFS last night at 7:00 PM until 7:00 AM this morning, at which time it was dropped again to the current 750 CFS release.  With such a substantial fluctuation, expectations for fish activity today certainly remained hopeful, but weren't high.  Given the conditions, only handful of anglers joined us today, contending with some serious west winds and freezing rain.  The anglers we were able to speak with this afternoon, reiterated the difficulty the winds presented today. It seems most of our anglers were able to hook a fish or two regardless.  We are certainly hopeful after a day of acclimation that we will see just how many fish the 5 days of high water brought in with it.

A raw day on the run today.  Temperatures in the low-40’s and a brutal wind made things challenging for our anglers today. At the end of the day it looks like there may be clearing skies and we can only hope that the winds subside overnight. The lower section seemed to fish better than the mid and upper sections in spiteof the strong winds in that section).  The reports from our anglers were mixed.  Many that I spoke with had a “very good day” with decent numbers of chrome Steelhead and a few browns in the mix as well. Others that I spoke with came up empty which may have been a function of wind,  one’s ability to deal with it, and angling technique.  All agreed, however, that the fish are there in good numbers which is all we can ask for.   Water from the dam remains at 500 cfs and the current flow at Pineville is 660 cfs

What more could we be thankful for!? A beautiful morning with sunny skies, modest temperatures, no wind, a good fishable flow in the river, and of course happy biting steelhead! Just about everyone I've spoke to this morning has had success and all have enjoyed their time on the water before heading off to spend time with friends and family. The morning's catch was primarily freshly minted steelhead with a few brown trout in the mix. We continue to observe steelhead being caught in a variety of sizes indicating a good age structure and (hopefully) several more years of good fishing ahead of us. Several guests noted larger fish today in the 10lb+ size class. Happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at Douglaston Salmon Run!

Another mild day, plenty of overcast, and just a few brief showers.  Overall, based on angler reports, the fishing didn’t slow down today, rather, for some, just picking up where they left off yesterday.  With most of the action reported in the lower end yesterday, it was inevitable that we see some more action in the middle and upper sections of the property today.  Lower sections of the run reported greater action earlier in the day, but overall, consistent.  Middle sections of the run were reported to be consistent throughout the day.  A few browns reported, along with a rogue coho in the mix today.

November 22, 2022

Seems like today was one of those days you should have been here!  A bit of overcast, and warmer temperatures were definitely ideal ingredients for a good outing. Another couple dozen anglers (most returning from yesterday), seemed to have quite a field day down on the run.  Reports ranged from a couple fish, to one seasoned angler reaching double digit numbers indicating it was the best fishing he had experienced in quite some time. As usual, we just needed that day of acclimation, to see just how many fish that bump in flows brought in with it.  Overall, today, the lower end was the place to be today, with great reports from both float and fly fishing anglers.  After the apprehension and concern expressed earlier in this season, it's certainly reassuring to hear such positive reports as we progress through the season.

And, we're back in action!  The snow didn't seem to amount to the few feet we were expecting in Pulaski.  However, some surrounding areas were a completely different story.  Although not having seen the water quality yesterday, it's probably safe to assume, given the conditions, it was extremely slushy.  With the weather subsiding today, a couple dozen anglers eagerly set out this morning, hoping to take advantage of the lack of pressure on the run yesterday, AND a drop in the dam release (back down to 500 CFS).   Reports from the anglers we were able to catch up with today seemed to be fairly consistent - several indicating a few fish each (1's & 2's), others reporting a quiet day on the water with no luck.

November 19, 2022

CFS at the dam 750, CFS at the Pineville gauge 898 - air temperature at opening time was 28 degrees, and rose to only 34 degrees over the course of the day - we started mostly cloudy, cleared for a bit, then went back to a complete overcast - light winds made for almost a pleasant day - the run was well populated by guests, angling from top to bottom - the general consensus of reports was that this morning the fish activity level was best, with a gradual tapering off into the afternoon - primarily Steelhead, with two Brown Trout making an appearance - middle section fished slightly better overall, with the lower close behind - about three quarters of our guests were able to tag "a few" - mostly 1s and 2s, with higher numbers from 3s to 5s, a 7, and even one in the low double-digits, so fishing today was "not bad" - one guest stated that the fish seemed to come in little waves, setting up a flurry of short-lived action - so far we have not received any of the forecasted snow showers . . . however, overnight and into the early morning this is the forecast: Cloudy skies with late-night snow showers. Low 26F. Winds SSW at 15 to 25 mph. Chance of snow 80%. Snow accumulating 3 to 5 inches. - the forecast for tomorrow is: Periods of snow along with gusty winds at times, especially during the morning. High 29F. Winds WNW at 20 to 30 mph. Chance of snow 90%. Snow accumulating 5 to 8 inches. Winds could occasionally gust over 40 mph. We are in a lake effect snow warning from about 4 AM Sunday through 4 AM Monday, which, if the winds are just right, and the lake effect forms over us, may make travel very difficult since there will be high winds blowing the snow around - be careful, and stay tuned here, and on our Face Book page, for whether or not we will close tomorrow - if we do, we will credit any passes purchased, to your account, per a posting we made earlier this morning

With the potential for significant amounts of snowfall, combined with high winds, in the next 24 hours, and out of an abundance of caution for our guests' safety, DSR is allowing guests to cancel their fishing or lodging reservations for 11/20/22. Any cancelled fishing or lodging reservation will result in a full credit to a guest’s online account.
 
Please contact DSR Guest Services at 315-298-6672 extension 0, or [email protected], and our team will take it from there.
 
Lake effect snow bands are narrow and difficult to predict, given their wind-driven nature. DSR will continue to monitor the forecast and announce a closure for 11/20/22 if determined appropriate.

Low 31F. Winds NW at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of snow 90%. Snow accumulating 1 to 3 inches.

consolidated morning and afternoon River Patrol fishing report: at the bottom line, today was challenging but categorically unproductive fishing, for a trifecta of reasons, which I will set forth below should you be interested in reading on - first, yesterday we had on and off sprinkling, followed by steady, heavy, rain throughout most of the night - as a result, although the CFS at the dam remained at 335 (as of this report there is no scheduled change), the CFS at the Pineville gauge at 6 AM was 829 - spot checks throughout the day revealed the CFS steadily climbed to it's current peak of 1110 as of the time of this report - some good news for tomorrow morning is that at 11:15 AM the straight-up climbing trend started to stutter-step, and the curve bent over a bit - since we have had negligible rain today, we should reach the ascension apogee soon, with gradually reduced flow thereafter - our overnight forecast is for 80% chance of showers turning into a light steady rain overnight, so the drop will be slowed but it may still level out at a relatively high flow tomorrow - secondly, the strong westerly winds made angling just that much more difficult, blowing straight down the river - last, no guests mentioned water clarity being any issue, probably because there were so many leaves that had been blown into the water overnight, posing yet another serious challenge to angling - it should be stated that although our part of the river system rises rapidly, it also equally rapidly drains and clears out - the conditions can only get better . . . the forecast for tomorrow is: rain early...then remaining cloudy with showers in the afternoon. High 43F. Winds WNW at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 80%. Rainfall around a quarter of an inch.

High 66F. Winds SSE at 5 to 10 mph. Looks like Friday we are looking at a lot of rain throughout the day and that night, with chances for rain continuing through the weekend in the 60th and 70th percentiles - no idea how that will effect CFS at the dam, or in our part of the run, however overcast conditions and increased flows are usually a trigger for greater fish activity throughout the day

If you happened to be in the right spot at the right time, you did well. If not? Not so good and the latter was the more common report from our anglers today. A mid-afternoon flurry up high and then little action. Afternoon reports from the lower end were not encouraging. It seems like we have a very good day and then that is followed by a challenging day. If that is the case, tomorrow ought to be a very good day. Not a fishing report but we would like to inform our anglers that one of our guests took an unfortunate fall in the river at which time he lost his wedding ring. A ring that was once his father nd which had been passed from father to son. It's engraved with RS and JS to JR. Needless to say, the family would be most appreciative should anyone be able to recover the ring. At the time the angler was between the Wall Hole and The Flats.

It's hard to beat this weather. Especially at this time of year. It would be better if we had less wind because that caused a pretty significant leaf hatch that became problematic for our anglers, but in spite of the leaves most anglers had a decent day. Some browns, better numbers of Steelhead and some fresher Kings are still being brought to hand (including at least one that was "very silver). Similar to yesterday, early day was very good and this afternoon the upper section of the run lite up pretty good around mid-afternoon and the lower end was productive as well. It's good seeing decent numbers of Steelhead in the run.

Another spectacular weather-day on the Douglaston Salmon Run. The fish that entered the run yesterday evening/night made their way to the mid and upper sections this morning and provided good action for our anglers. The lower section was good at first light but things slowed when the sun hit the water. Afternoon reports from the mid to upper sections was that there "was constant action" with anglers getting into multiple fish. Primarily Steelhead but with some fresh salmon in the mix Afternoon reports from the lower section of the river were similar to that of the upper section report with excellent fishing being reported.

Much better action on the run today. Still some fresh Kings being taken and the Steelhead bite improved in a major wy today. The fish that were sighted at the lower end yesterday evening made their way to the mid and upper section this morning providing our anglers with steady action that continued throughout the day. This afternoons report indicated that fishing was very good from the top end all the way down to the mid-section with most anglers getting into multiple Steelhead. The afternoon report from the lower section was also positive with "a steady pick throughout the afternoon. Messages of "doom and gloom" and "the sky is falling" are beginning to look misguided.

A challenging day for most angers today. That being said, others did reasonably well with a couple nice browns, some steelhead, and a few Kings (on the fresh side). At the end of the day, river patrol indicated that some Steelhead were witnessed coming into the lower section of the run with anglers "hooking up pretty good." Where those fish will be in the run will be determined by our anglers tomorrow.

A beautiful day on the run, but, unfortunately the fishing continues to be a challenge for our guest. Early morning in the mid-to upper section saw some action and the reports from this afternoon indicated a few Coho, Kings, Steelhead and an Atlantic being brought to hand. River patrol this afternoon reported sighting about a dozen Kings in various location in the lower section of our run. Tomorrow looks to be another beautiful day and we are hopeful that the presence of Steelhead shows some sign of improvement.

With the fishing seeing a little bit of a dry spell lately, today was hopefully a glimpse of better things to come. Anglers had their work cut out for them while battling colder temps, wind and leaves. We finally saw a glimpse of Steelhead working their way into the run along with some late but very fresh Kings. Also showing their presence were the odd Coho, Atlantic and Brown Trout. Not off the charts by any means but a good sign.   CFS at the dam is 335 CFS at Pineville is 430

A challenging day on the run. Good water temperature (50 degrees), good water flow (about 500 cfs), and plenty of eggs in the river, but the Steelhead are proving to be elusive. That being said, I did get reports of multiple angers hooking (but not landing ) multiple steelhead. 0 for five and zero for four, for example. But clearly, this was the exception to the rule. Most struggled to get into multiple fish. We are seeing an increasing umber of Atlantics being hooked, however. At least four Atlantics were brought to hand by various anglers.

To say that our anglers had a challenging day is, perhaps, an understatement. A good many of the anglers that I spoke with spent the day fishing hard with little to show for their efforts. There are still a few salmon around, but very few. Steelhead (and Browns) that had been making a limited showing of late, seemed to be playing hide and seek today. But in spite of the challenge, it was a beautiful Fall day.

Evening Fishing Report: The changing weather brought mixed results on the run today. A couple of anglers had success at the bottom of the run, with several Kings brought out and Steelheads landed. The upper end of the run saw some activity with Kings and Steelheads landed. In the middle, River Patrol didn't see and Kings landed but a Brown and Steelhead were brought to hand. The water temp was 52F. The weather for tonight evening clouds will give way to clearing overnight. Slight chance of a rain shower. Low 37F. Winds S at 5 to 10 mph.

Most angers were challenged today. Fewer fresh salmon are coming into the run and those that are here are in spawning mode. There are better numbers of trout (Steelhead and Browns) showing up. Not great numbers by any means, but encouraging numbers. Two season pass holders that I spoke with at the end of the day each got into multiple Steelhead and one had the good fortune of bring an Atlantic Salmon to hand. Rain in the forecast next week may well have a positive impact of the numbers of fish in the run.

Todays action on the run was a bit of a mixed bag. Overall it was a tough pick but fish were brought to hand by the anglers who put in the time. The higher water levels weren't particularly helpful with most anglers by limiting their fishable water and making it easier for fish to cruise on by undetected. A few Kings, the odd Coho, a rare Atlantic and a few Steelhead made an appearance today. CFS at the dam is 750 and will drop to 500 at 9PM CFS at Pineville is 929

The heavy rain that was forecast for today, thus far, has not materialized. Perhaps things were different in our larger drainage area (Tug Hill, etc.). A short downpour and some showers kept many anglers off the run and therefore it was difficult to get a representative sampling of the quality of the fishing. From what we could assess, there are fish around (particularly on the edges), with a mix of Kings nd better numbers of trout (Steelhead and Brown Trout)
 
At the time of this posting (6:15 PM) the flow from the dam is scheduled to remain at 1200 cfs through tomorrow night at Midnight and the current flow at Pineville is 1340 cfs (which indicates that at this point there is not much runoff).

The middle section had fish and some fish being brought to hand, but, relatively quiet compared to the upper section. Afternoon reports indicated that "fresher" Kings were moving into the lower section of the runout of the estuary.

From our mid-section down, fish were still being brought to hand while the estuary was described as "very quiet."

AM Fishing Report - Reports from our River Patrol this morning indicated another quiet start to the day.  With Columbus Day behind us, it seems safe to say that we’re most likely soon approaching the conclusion of Salmon season.  So far this morning, first light seemed to be the most productive, but overall rather light fish activity.  The upper sections of the property reporting a light activity, with a few trout hooked in the mix, but predominantly reporting kings. Middle and lower sections with kings reported as a ‘slow but steady pick’.

3 PM River Patrol fishing report: although the AM report was "very slow" all along the entire run, apparently that was not entirely the case at some specific locations as all morning I saw a procession of guests with their salmon, and a guide reported that about mid-morning the fish activity changed from very, very slow to double-digit hookups on fresh Kings - perhaps the pod of salmon in the North channel decided to make a small run into the river - the lower section again reported "very slow" action this afternoon, mostly spawning Kings - just upriver was also "slow" - however, beginning about 1:30 PM or so, fish movement and angler activity gradually picked up in the middle section {"fish in holes more aggressive"}, resulting in reports of hooking up on primarily Kings - upper section also reported an uptick in action, Kings, with an eight pound Steelhead recently brought to hand there - the forecast for tomorrow is: Rain showers early with some sunshine later in the day.

Jack Kings. Coho, mature Kings, some browns, Steelhead and a beautiful domestic rainbow were all in the mix today. It's nice to see that there are still decent numbers of Coho in the run. They seem to be staying around longer than in recent year. Anglers that put in the work and time are still finding success. Not "off the hook" numbers but plenty of fish to keep everyone occupied and happy. A late day report indicated that decent numbers of fish were moving into the lower end of the run and that should prove beneficial for tomorrow.
 
Flow from the dam remains at 500 cfs and the flow at Pineville is currently 603 cfs.

Probably the coolest start we’ve had yet, with air temperatures in the 30’s this morning, and a reported water temperature of 52 F.  Initial reports from the upper end of the property this morning indicated a bit more activity than that of the lower end.   The lower section of the property and estuary reported very little fish movement, with just a few reports of Kings being landed.  Middle & upper sections of the property seeing just a bit more action, predominantly smaller ‘jack’ kings. Overall; of the fish hooked so far this morning, it seems anglers are still having a rather tough time keeping them on considering  the flows.

Not a great day. Not a bad day, but all-in-all a good day to be fishing the DSR. Just about everyone that I spoke with were able to get into multiple Kings nd a good many were brought to hand. Warmer weather (after a chilly start) and plenty of sunshine contributed to the enjoyment of the day. A few more Steelhead are starting to show up as are a few more brown trout. It would be nice to get another push of some salmon in from the lower end and we'll wait and see. Water level is going down tonight and that will make things a bit more manageable.

Fishing, overall, was slower than yesterday, but after the numbers we witnessed yesterday that's not saying much. Today may have required greater fishing effort but from the anglers that I spoke with and what I have seen, fishing was very good today. Mostly Kings today with fewer Coho, but that's not surprising given the rate fish were moving through the run yesterday.
 
Water continues to drop, which is good, and the level looks like it will remain at 750 cfs (at least until 8:00PM tomorrow night when it'll go down to 130 cfs for three hours (probably doing some work at the power house)

Well today was the day. Or at least one of those days, of which we hope there are more to come. The high water brought in the fish today and for the first time this season I feel it safe to say we had "a run." Fish poured into the run in jaw-dropping numbers throughout the day and have continued into this evening.
 
All are concerned as to what happens next with regard to the water level. Will it go down? How fast? Will it go up? How high? All questions whose answers we will wait for. The good news is that the rain has diminished and as has the water flowing into the reservoir and the flow at Pineville. Let's all keep our fingers crossed.

Good movement early this morning, as has been the case of late. Slower movement and more difficult fishing after the initial flurry. And while in past days things might have remined slow until late afternoon/evening, things started cranking around 2:00 this afternoon. Heavy rain during the day triggered good fish movement .Reports of good numbers of Kings and Coho's entered the run and provided "off the hook" fishing for all anglers all afternoon and into the evening. I'm guessing anglers are going to be hesitant to leave the run today.

Morning fishing report from River Patrol. The action seems to be a little patchy this morning depending on where you are. The top of the run is currently steady with a mix of kings and coho as well as a lone brown trout. However, just below that area was good for the first hour but has slowed down since the early going. This was also the trend observed in the middle of the run and now a slow pick of kings and cohos is continuing. Near the bottom of the run saw good action for the first two hours but has slowed down more recently, a few brown trout were reported here as well. The estuary reports decent pods of kings and coho but few fish are being brought to hand in that area.

Another good day to be fishing on the Douglaston Salmon Run.  Similar to the past several days, early morning indicated that the upper section had the upper hand, but fish were spread throughout the run and everyone that I spoke with were able to get into Kings, some  into nice-sized Coho, and a brown trout here and there.  As anglers were leaving the water this morning, most were smiling, some were dragging a bit, but all indicated that they had an enjoyable and worthwhile day.  Stormy weather that was forecast for this afternoon did not materialize and it ended up being a gorgeous day.  Mostly clear skies and very comfortable temperatures.  Much cooler temperatures over the next few days ought to put some fish on the move.  We'll have to wait and see.

Overall a good day to be on the run. Still "moderate but steady" action from top to bottom but plenty of fun the be had with Kings and a few Cohos still showing up. More rain is on its way over the next couple days so we can hope for a continued pattern and success that we have seen.

The morning fishing report from River Patrol indicates good fishing in the upper and lower sections with a slower but steady pick in the middle of the run. Today's action is mostly kings with a few cohos and brow trout in the mix. Reports from the estuary indicate some good pods of fish moving around there as well.

After yesterdays lull in the action, today was definitely a change of pace. The fish seemed to take a break on the run with yesterdays slower action and decided to start moving again today. Plenty of Kings, Cohos and the occasional Brown provided plenty of action for the entire duration of the day on the entire run. This may be a continued pattern with the cloud cover and rain systems moving in over the next few days.

With the coldest overnight temperature yet this season, the water temperature this morning dropped down to a recorded 60 F.  Last night’s fishing quality certainly set some expectations, for this morning’s anglers on the run.  The reports we’ve received so far this morning, from both guest’s and  river patrol, the consensus from all; fishing is ‘STEADY’, with a seemingly even ratio of King Salmon, and the fan favorite, Cohos. All sections of the property indicated similar fish activity.

Nice cooler temperatures today and a mix of sun and clouds. Water temperatures are still on the high side with an early morning reading of 65 degrees getting to 69 by mid day. Very good fishing for the better part of the day and late morning into this afternoon it got much better than good. Very good movement of fish at the upper and lower end with Kings, a few browns, and more Coho than we have seen all season. Excellent fishing with persistent fish movement throughout the run. Late afternoon report from down low is that the estuary just below lower clay is "loaded." Today was by far the best day of the year and the prospects for tomorrow look excellent. Cooler temperatures at night should keep things movin

There weren't big numbers of fish around, but there are fish here. Primarily Kings, but a few browns as well. I saw a picture of a nice 30' brown that was brought to hand and released back into the run. Some action in the morning, a much slower pick through the better part of the day' and some better fish movement into the lower end that started around 4:30. So perhaps more fish will follow them in tomorrow. We'll wait and see. But it does appear that the mid-section might fish well in the morning.

Fish movement and angler success this afternoon seemed to be dictated by where you were on the run. It seemed movement on the upper end was pretty consistent from sunrise to sunset with most guests hooking a fair amount (nothing spectacular) and brining a few to hand. The lower section seemed to have a small but steady push of fish moving for the later half of the day with little pods of fish (1-3) moving up every few minutes and the few anglers who were down there took advantage. The middle section seemed to be quite slow, which makes to believe the fish at the upper end came in overnight and the fish in the lower end are moving in early on in the day. Only species reported were King Salmon. CFS at the dam is 370, CFS at Pineville is 476.

It was a beautiful day to be on the river but the fishing has slowed noticeably. There are still salmon around and a number made it to hand, but compared to the days over the weekend (especially Monday) it's a different ball game. It might have been that the high water we saw over the weekend brought in some fish that have now played out. We'll just have to see what the next several days bring.

Definitively more salmon on the run today than we have seen so far this season. Good numbers of fish were on the move and many anglers got into multiple fish. Some did better than others in bringing them to hand, but that is to be expected. Especially with these early season fish that for some reason, even in warmer water, seem particularly difficult to bring to hand. "Hooked five but didn't land any" was a typical statement. More good news is that multiple anglers reported seeing some brown trout in the mix.

Evening Report

This evenings report is a continuation of this afternoons report. Some of the anglers that fished and saw salmon this morning came back this afternoon and evening and all six anglers reported seeing "some" additional salmon. Not a lot but some. No additional fish were brought to hand although one was hooked and broke off. The next few days will tell us if the fish that appeared on the run today are the beginning of more to come or are merely fish that were hanging around and made a move when we received that rain and the bump in the water level. We'll see what tomorrow brings, but things are beginning to get interesting. More rain is in the forecast and that's a good thing.

This is the first afternoon fishing report that we've had in a while, but todays news justifies it. The rain that we had this morning, combined with some cooler temperatures encouraged some Salmon to push into the DSR. Reports of the few anglers on the water suggest not a lot of fish but "some". One angler reported seeing at least a half dozen this morning (before he left) and while two others "saw nothing" this morning, reported seeing three this afternoon, one of which is pictured on our Facebook page. Someone had to be first and this happy father and son were the first on the Douglaston Salmon Run. This evening I will give an update on any additional fish or sightings.

Again today there was no sign of any salmon. Water from the dam remains at 185 cfs and the flow at Pineville is 240 cfs. It would be good to get some rain as things are getting a little dry.

A half dozen anglers took advantage of a truly beautiful day and joined us on the run today. "Small fry" is all that was reported. An early morning angler fished until mid-morning and did see any evidence of what he was looking for and that was the same report of a couple season pass holders that fished the early evening hours. One did report that while looking downriver for any tell tale sign, he noticed significant splashing in the shallows downstream form his location. He got very excited and then disappointed (sort of) to realize that what he was witnessing were three deer splashing across the river!!!

Typical of this time of the year, there have been isolated salmon caught upriver already - today, two guests fished the run - one fished the center section during the morning into very early afternoon, but did not either see or hook into any fish - the other guest saw a solitary salmon splashing upriver this morning, took a break during the afternoon, and came back in the early evening to try again, without any luck - CFS at the dam 185, CFS at the Pineville gauge 240 - alternating periods of overcast and (mostly) clear skies meant bright sunshine most of the day - temperatures in the high 60s and low 70s most of the day, with cooling breezes - overnight low will be 50 degrees - tomorrow will be sunny, high 76 degrees, winds 5 to 10 mph - the good news in the next week is that daytime temperatures will be in the mid 70s, overnight lows will be low 60s, and there is a 39% - 41% chance of rain Monday through Thursday - other than biological imperatives, cooling temperatures, overcast and rain, are two of the three general triggers for salmon to enter the river - now we need increased water flow as the last trigger . . .
 
we have made the nine month seasons passes, for those passholders who had acceptable pictures uploaded to their accounts - you may pick those up on your first visit - if you are a season pass holder (nine or 6.5 months) please check your accounts to ensure that you have a passport quality picture uploaded (head and shoulders only, full on, face illuminated, no hat, no sunglasses, plain background) as this is the picture we will use to print your pass - please, no "action photos" as we generally cannot use those

The Estuary Lodge will very soon be opening up for booking 12 through 15 September - please call us should you be interested in booking this lodge
 
if you are having difficulty obtaining online daily access fishing passes, for the day(s) you wish to fish, here are some potential workarounds:
 
please note that we begin sales of online daily access fishing passes, for the forthcoming season, in mid-January of each year - please plan accordingly;
 
continue to monitor our website for the day(s) desired as, on occasion, individuals surrender their pass(es) and we post them back to the website;
 
renting an available DSR lodge allows you to purchase daily access fishing passes, up to the number of lodge guests, from the day of check-in through the day of check-out;
 
obtaining the services of a DSR guide will enable you to purchase daily access fishing pass(es) up to the maximum number of the guided party, for the day(s) the party is being guided;
 
you may want to research the benefits of a season pass, the greatest of which is guaranteed access every day that the pass is active, as well as four coupons each season that guarantee access for up to four guests, who may purchase daily access fishing passes for a reduced amount;
 
we will have limited opportunities for walk-up full, and afternoon only, daily access fishing passes - on the day(s) you wish to fish, be here at our posted opening time and obtain a numbered ticket (similar to the one you would obtain at the barber shop or any other location where there is an abundance of first-come, first-served, customers) at the kiosk located in front of our Ticket Office - after we have processed all categories of guests, we will determine if there are any tickets remaining (no-shows) and issue any available.

A day with clear skies, little breeze, and rather warm with temperatures in the mid-80's. I guess it's just that time of year. Water temperature was not taken today, but with the temperatures that we had today and overnight, I would assume that they remained in the mid-to high 60's (as they were yesterday).
 
We had several anglers join us today that indicated that they had a good day (giving me the "thumbs up" from across the parking lot).
 
Tomorrows weather looks to be very similar to today but with temperatures perhaps a slight bit warmer.
 
Water flow will remain at 400 cfs from the dam until 6:00 PM tomorrow at which point it will start heading down to 185 cfs on Monday. Current flow at Pineville is a very manageable 464 cfs

High 83F. Winds SW at 5 to 10 mph" - tomorrow is Memorial Day - it has been often said that the cost of freedom is not "for free" . . . all too often the cost is too high . . . and that cost is paid daily by our veterans and servicemembers - please take a moment to thank veterans and servicemembers for their service and personal sacrifices, and to remember those who are no longer with us - "Thank you!".

About a half of a dozen anger decided to join us today and while I didn't have the opportunity to talk with all of them, those that reported indicated an excellent day for both Steelhead and Smallmouth bass. One extremely happy Season Pass Holder had a great day going 2 for 4 with some strong and beautiful Steelhead and was able to get into some bass as well. Add the spectacular environment and you have a day to remember for a long time. Water is warming up a bit; starting at 52 degrees this morning and 59 degrees by noon.
 
Water from the dam remains at 185 cfs and currently at Pineville it is 273 cfs

It was a beautiful day at the Douglaston Salmon Run and about a dozen anglers took advantage of the excellent conditions. Most anglers were able to get into Steelhead today. Ones and twos for the most part with a couple anglers doing better than that and a couple anglers striking out with Steelhead, but being very satisfied with the Smallmouth bass success that they had. One fortunate angler was even able to bring an Atlantic to hand. Not a huge one (maybe in the 4-5 lb range) "but everyone is a great one."

A beautiful day! But, not particularly warm as many of us hoped.  Soon enough.  Seems like just the other day we were looking at flows over 1,000 CFS down here, but as suspected, we'll be all the way down to 285 CFS tomorrow.  With flows today at 350 CFS from the dam, it's certainly enabled some of our anglers to stretch their legs and cover some ground.  Today was a toss up. Seemed like most of our fly fishing anglers got into a few feisty steelhead, while others reported easy double digit action on some FAT small mouth bass.  Either way, it's a bent rod!

Another beautiful spring day in the 70’s! Hard to believe Tug Hill received a foot of snow last week. Like yesterday, the bite was better before the sun got high on the water, strong winds also made casting difficult. Anglers continue to catch steelhead using multiple techniques. Those guests using larger flies or lures are seeing more success catching both steelhead and smallmouth bass than anglers using eggs or beads. As predicted in yesterday’s report, the water continued to warm today. Around 8am the water was 48 degrees and increased to 52 degrees by 1pm. With these types of water temperatures, steelhead tend to gravitate to faster water. With ¼” of rain forecasted for tonight, the flowcast shows the dam release will continue at 1,200 cfs through midnight tomorrow 4/26. The Pineville gauge currently reports 1,450cfs. Tomorrow’s forecast calls for cloudy skies and a chance of a shower with a high of 50 degrees, winds West at 10-15mph.

Improving weather and improving fishing

Blue skies dominated today and although there was a breeze, it was nothing like the last few days. One of our busiest days in the last week, anglers we spoke with indicated things were on the up tick, reports of 2/3, 2/5 and several who noted they landed 'a few'. The morning water temp of 43F rose to 48F by midday. Please note; water flows are scheduled to increase to 1200cfs at 7pm tonight.

The weather wasn't great today, with fairly constant light misty rain. But for fishing conditions, you couldn't ask for much better overcast.  Temperatures stayed mid 40's today, and minimal wind compared to the past few days.  Many of the anglers today, again returning from the past few days.  Seems like the fishing is just about as good as yesterday.  A fish or two reported by most anglers.  With a 750 CFS release from the dam, the Pineville gauge reading 1220 CFS for most of the day, means this run off most likely doubling the output of the dam by the time it sees us down here on the bottom end. Hopefully things will start to dry out here over the weekend, with a low probability of rain in the forecast.

Snowy and Windy

We had a number of guests join us today and all expressed the same sentiment - too windy! Snow squalls over night didn't lead to much accumulation, all of which was melted by midday. A small brown and a feisty steelhead were reported, but most of our anglers were driven off because wind made casting difficult. Tomorrow should bring an improvement in both wind and temperatures, a great day to come chase some dropbacks!

DSR Fishing Report April 18th, 2022

A pretty decent day overall, except perhaps for the wind. As usual, some guests did better than others but most guests we spoke with got into several fish today. An added bonus was the variety of species caught. Steelhead, Brown trout, and small mouth bass were all represented in our guest's reports. In addition, several methods were successful -nymphing, swinging flies, and float fishing anglers all had success catching multiple fish. The water temperature started at 43 degrees around 8am and ended at 45 degrees around 1pm. The flow cast is forecasted to remain at 750 cfs through tomorrow at midnight. Please use caution if you're headed this way in the morning as Pulaski is forecasted to receive 4-8" of snow through tomorrow at noon.

Nothing like a bit of snow, mid April! Temperatures dropped quite a bit last night, leaving us with a pretty good coat of white, which melted by mid day with the bluebird skies.  Overall, a quiet day for the run, with just a handful of anglers joining us early this morning to get some fishing in.  A range of reports from these anglers.  A couple of our regular anglers indicating a pretty good day, especially with the light angling pressure.  But for others, it seemed like a endless battle considering the strong wind today.  With some stability in the release, the fishing seems to be fairly consistent.  Plenty of drop backs being caught at this point.  With the occasional fresh fish in the mix down here.

All the feels today.  Temperatures last night into this morning, were surprisingly warm this morning.  The dozen of anglers started the day off, probably breaking a sweat with temperatures in the upper 60's, but quickly changed by mid-day with a bit of rain and dropping 20 degrees in just a few hours.  A handful of anglers fishing today, having fished the past few days, expressed things were a little quite today.  But the good news, again, it seemed almost all of our anglers were able to get at least one fish.  The posted dam release is currently outdated, but with a current flow of 1060 from the USGS gauge at Pineville, its safe to assume we are still seeing a release of 750 CFS.  With no rhyme or rhythm, we will jut have to wait to see where the release goes from here.  As always, please be sure to check Safe Waters for updates on the Dam Release schedule, in anticipation for any scheduled fishing trips!

Flying Fish

Regardless of the fish activity, today was quite a comfortable day.  Could have even been just a bit cooler.  Water temperatures this morning were recorded  at 39 F approaching 45 F by the end of the day today.  Don't let it fool you though.  You still need your wool socks. But, you might be able to get away in a t-shirt.  Reports from our anglers indicated a quieter day but nearly everyone was able to get a nice little piece of steel today.  Definitely starting to see plenty of spawned out fish now, bee-lining it right for the lake.  And they certainly don't waste time.  Let the steelhead acrobatics commence.  As if their brute power wasn't enough, now they'll really be throwing their weight around.  Forecasts for the remainder of the week here leave us with some looming rain, which at this time doesn't seem like we will receive a great volume of rain.  Many anglers asking what they might do with the water, given the forecast.  I'd be a rich man if I had the answer to that question!

Things are drying out

Rain overnight came to an end early this morning and we saw clearing skies as the day progressed. Water temperatures are beginning to warm, starting at 43F this morning and warming to 47F by midday. Anglers picked away during the first part of the day but once skies cleared they really had to work for every bite. Rain and thunderstorms are back in tomorrows forecast, but at least there's no snow in the 10 day!

Walleye in the S-Turn

It's certainly been a roller coaster over the past week with change after change in the dam release.  Today, a release of 750 CFS.  With fair weather, rather mild temperatures, a little bit of overcast, you can't ask for a much better day to be on the water, let alone steelhead fishing.  Reports that rolled in over the weekend, spread some optimism as we start to approach mid April now.  Water temperatures were recorded at 39 F this morning, reaching 43 F mid day.  From the reports we received today, it certainly wasn't lights out fishing, but most anglers were able to bring in a fish or two.  One of our guides reporting some pretty energetic fish, taking him and his clients for a nice ride from Joss down to the Spring Hole before they could tame it. Good old pink worms! And, another quite an interesting note from our guide; there seem to be an abundance of walleye spawning in the lowest parts of the run here.  Not uncommon to see them towards the estuary at this time of year, always a few caught unknowingly. Crossing our fingers that things will continue to warm, and we don't get too much rain.  It'd be nice to see the same flow for a few days!

Not quite as nice as it was yesterday, weather wise, but we did have half a dozen anglers join us on the run and from the reports that I have received the fishing was pretty good. Finally, the water flow has diminished and continues to be decreased at the dam. From 4500 to 2000, to 1600, 1200 and this morning at 9:30 the flow was dropped to 750 cfs. That definitely helps the fishing.... one for two, a couple two for three (with a nice brown),
three for six and our last anglers off the run late this evening (that tells you something) went ten for twenty two amongst three anglers. Very good when also considering that one was a "first timer". . A guide in a drift boat that fished the Douglaston had numbers in the double digits which indicates to me that the drop back season is getting into full swing.
Flow from the dam is 750 cfs (through midnight Monday) and at Pineville the flow is 1150 cfs

Although the originally posted release was to be 2000 cfs, that was changed and the flow from the dam today was 1600 cfs. It turned out to be a beautiful day with blue skies and temperatures approaching 50, but other than lodge guests, the run went unfished today.
At this hour (4:45 PM) the water release is to be 1600 cfs, but that might well change (as it did last night) and it is recommended to visit the site later this evening. Based on todays weather, the flow may decrease from the scheduled 1600 cfs, but we'll need to wait and see. https://www.safewaters.com/facility/lighthouse-hill

Blindsided by a 1900 CFS release this morning, needless to say, things were pretty quiet on the run. Most likely in anticipation of the few inches of rain we have forecasted.  A couple of anglers whom had traveled a distance to get here, certainly made the best of the situation by sticking it out on the water for a majority of the day.  Weather was pleasant! A bit breezy but, good overcast, and comfortable temperatures.  There was no reports of any fish being brought to hand today.  With higher water, things are definitely tricky.  It'll drive you nuts trying to get a good drift in some of the juicy slicks and edges you, just out of reach to get it right.  Presentation at these levels is definitely tough.  No doubt about it.  But, there definitely remains fair opportunity even with all of these limitations.  With fish pushing to the edges, it's just time to look in the spots you wouldn't have looked before.   I'll reference yesterdays post. Would fishing even be fun, if it weren't for all the adversity and challenges we face as anglers?

Warmer temperatures today, and finally feeling a bit more like spring here.  A few more days of this, and we might just see the water temperatures creep into the 40's.  This morning the recorded water temperature down here was 38 F.  A few anglers reporting the water is still a bit cooler up river toward the upper fly zone.  One of our guides reporting that the reservoir levels are looking surprisingly good, even after this extended high water release.  Today seemed to be a tough day for our anglers, with only a few fish reported being brought to hand, and a few more lost.  These blue bird skies definitely weren't in our favor.  The fish most likely laying low, and tucked away, getting ready to do their thing.  It's been a bit of a lull here, apparently throughout most of the river. Seems like the annual lull though, pre spawning time.  I mean, would fishing even be fun, if it weren't for all of the adversity and challenges we face as anglers?

About a dozen anglers fished the run today and most reports indicated that it was pretty tough grind. The water temperature remains around 37 degrees and the fish seem stuck in the "transition stage" (when they are not interested in eating but haven't committed to spawning yet). Most anglers were not able to get into a fish, a couple "hooked one and dropped it", and the most successful angler (that I spoke with) hooked three nd was able to land one (which was an absolute beautiful domestic rainbow).
The water was supposed to go down to 500 cfs today but the power company must have changed their minds as it stayed at 750 cfs and is scheduled to remain there through tomorrow.

While still a bit chilly on the water, the weather was more favorable today. Our guests reported working for their catch which ended up being a handful of steelhead and one fresh brown. As usual, covering water was as big of a factor of success as what was on the guest’s line.

We didn't get too much snow today and the little we received (maybe an inch) melted and didn't sty long. We did get wind and plenty of it. And the gust were what seemed to cause the most problems About a half dozen anglers braved the elements and found ways to deal with it. Being able to cross the river and find spots where one could tuck in helped and that contributed to a pretty successful day for most anglers that I spoke with. Much better that yesterday and most were able to bring a fish or two to hand and some did better than that. All Steelhead and no reports of any browns today.

Breathing Room

Onto the down slope now.  After yesterdays 3,200 CFS release, today we saw another reduction to a 2,000 CFS release.  DSR remained closed to anglers today, and will re-open when the dam release drops below 2,000 CFS.  But knowing how things usually go, it'll probably be 285 CFS by Friday.  If anything, while the waters raging, it certainly offers these fish a little breathing room.  The water temperature here on the bottom end of the river was a recorded 34F today.  Surely we'll see a nice climb in temperature as things continue to thaw.  We are excited to see how the fishing is once our anglers are able to return to their normally scheduled routines down on the run.

Shell Shock

Wish granted.  Another blue bird day today.  It might scare the fish a bit with no overcast, but we'll surely see the water start warming up if we can maintain this kind of weather.  Warm weather means snow melt.  Unaware of the snow pack situation up on the hill, I'd presume there's still quite a bit, with the dam release being increased to 1,500 CFS tonight, and scheduled to remain at 1,500 CFS tomorrow. Somethings always got to spoil the fun.  Quite a few anglers on the run today, but from the reports we received indicated another grind.  A bit of color to the water today, from some of the run off.  As we go into the weekend, while 1,500 CFS may be not be your cup of tea, or shell-shocked by the number, it's manageable.  And, no better way to master something. It's all about time spent on the water, no matter conditions, and just figuring it out!

Layers

We'll certainly take some more of this weather! A cloudy morning turned into a bluebird day, with temperatures crawling into the 50's. Lessons of the day; check the weather, don't trust the weatherman, wear layers, never overdress.  Some of our anglers managed to break a sweat today. As much as we love blue skies, they can certainly be troublesome.  Reports from our returning anglers today indicated a quieter day today than some of the previous outings in the week past.  Had to work for them yesterday, and today as well.  A few of our anglers hoofed it down to the bottom end of the run, surely taking advantage of the low pressure environment.  And, I dare say it, we have exposed grass on the bank of the Meadow.  Now, don't everyone run.  There's still plenty of icebergs left.  Results from the bottom sections of the run seemed to be less productive than the middle and upper sections today.  With a 900 CFS release, for some, the river has become crossable allowing for more ground to cover, and hit some of the holes that may not have seen an angler in a while.  Water temperatures this morning were recorded at 34 F at 8:00 AM.  It's not much of an increase, but we're getting somewhere.

It's raining, it's pouring...

We had a steady drizzle all day but that didn't deter a handful of hearty season passholders from spending the afternoon on the run. Guests picked away with a mix of fresh and colored up steelhead, no huge numbers reported but with the drop in water flows (down to 900cfs) we expected there to be a little bit of a lull in activity. Rain will taper overnight and tomorrow will be mild and sunny.

Conditions this weekend were a bit rough.  Little snow accumulation as result of Friday night's storm, with temperatures really all over the place.  Reports from anglers this weekend indicated a better outing on Saturday, but overall it seemed like everyone was able to get into a fish or two, just no crazy numbers reported from the handful of guests over the weekend. Another handful of anglers joined us on the run today, again, no crazy numbers, seemed like a couple of fish for each angler with no section of the run fishing better than another.  Conditions in the lower end are getting better, gradually. Pretty pleasant conditions overall today, with not much angling pressure, can't complain!

We <3 Lake-Effect

It's the calm before the storm I suppose, with temperatures climbing into the 40's today.  Quite a few anglers decided to get their fishing in, while the weather was cooperative.  As a result of commenting on the end of winter, we are now looking at a Winter Weather Advisory for tonight with a big question mark on just how much snow we might get.  We <3 lake-effect!  A majority of our anglers stuck it out for nearly the entire day.  Today went one way or another it seemed.  Some guests reporting multiple fish, while others reporting no fish.  One pass holder took a hike today, and went 2 for 3, ALL brown trout.  Our DSR guide, getting it done again today, again. We'll just say.... Good numbers. Reports from anglers indicated the water clarity has increased since the previous days.  We'll see if any anglers decide to venture out this weekend.  Maybe the weatherman will be wrong!

Veterans of High Water

A handful of anglers joining us today, despite water flows.  A majority of the anglers, pass holders (veterans of high water), including a DSR guide that drifted through the property.  It’s never easy when your fighting 1,500 CFS + down on the lower river, but most of our anglers stayed on the run for nearly the entire day.  Reports varied, a few left all the fish for the others, and a few got them good.  With ice finally breaking up in the estuary, and allowing for exit, having a drift boat has certainly been encouraging, and a great gauge for the current quality of fishing, after what seemed like a grind the past few weeks. Consistently seeing good numbers from a veteran DSR guide and clients. They’re there!

Mild

A rather mild day today.  Just over freezing with a bit of snow flurries (great overcast). But, amazingly so, a quiet day for the run. Those few that took advantage of a fair day, found a peaceful retreat down here with a considerable number of anglers upstream today. The release from the day remains 1200 CFS, and still a bit of run off, things are a bit chalky DOWN HERE. With high water it certainly makes it a bit tricky when it comes to getting a good presentation. The Pineville gauge reading 1450 CFS at the time of this report, with a recorded water temperature of 32F today.  Our ten day forecasted temperatures with highs, all above freezing. We might just be over the hump here with winter. But I wouldn't hold my breath. And I know, probably shouldn't have said that.  Not much snow on the ground DOWN HERE, but I'd presume there's still a fair amount of snowpack ready to feed the reservoir. Temperatures DOWN HERE and up there don't necessarily jive though. It's still an ice bath, but a few drop backs have been reported in various parts of the river, including down here over the past two weeks. Can't wait to see what April's infamous drop back season has in store for us, as the temperatures continue to warm the water up a bit.

Sunny skies dominated today but temperatures remained in the low thirties with the breeze. One guide drifted through the Run and hooked into double digits of fish, including a 34" steelhead. The fields have lost all their snow but a few piles remain in the parking lots and the woods has a crusty layer. We can feel spring in the air and look forward to the longer days March will bring. Start making your plans to join us on the run this Spring!

A bit of pressure this weekend, with Saturday seeing about double the amount of anglers. Today another story. Just a few anglers joined us, one in the morning, and two guided clients in a drift boat. The two anglers wading had a tough go at things; with flows limiting accessibility. The DSR guide who floated through today, didn’t do to shabby landing fish in the double digits, all caught throughout the property. The snow showers expected today, decided to remain as rain with temperatures staying around 40F today. Trails are fairly well cleared from all the boots on the ground, but lower sections of the property still remaining tough to navigate.

Welcome to central New York! Experience all the seasons in less than just one week!! Tonight, temperatures will drop into the teens, picking up some momentum tomorrow,  60 F on Sunday, and then back to snow Monday. Who knows, maybe the salmon will start running tomorrow. Some blue in the sky today, not too cold, but the wind was another story.  The handful of anglers that joined us today reiterated the wind was just a pain in the bass. But, if its not the weather, its the water. A good drift was definitely hard to come by today.  Seems like all of our anglers were able to get into a fish or two, but we all know, when there's wind, there's slack.   Sometimes, its just impossible to get a good hook!

Three Thumbs Up

A windy start to the day was definitely, and rightfully so, a deterrent for anglers.  Winds continued throughout the day but dyed down just enough to make for a productive outing for the sole pass holder that joined us today, on his return from yesterday.  The playground, all to himself. Envy. Taking advantage of unpressured fish, he was able to have a better day today.  Which is hard to believe after the past few days reports from this angler.  Persistence pays, always.  Ice seems to still be proving to be quite the obstacle course when navigating down to the lower end of the property, but with the forecast in store for Sunday, might change things just a little bit.  Especially if we see the flows bump back up with 60 F and rain.

Two Thumbs Up

Seems like the weather just cant make up it's mind. A little back and forth between showers and snow flurries last night into the morning with temperatures holding around freezing over the day.  Most of the anglers today, were anglers returning from yesterday, up for a little bit of redemption after an okay day.  Today, we got 2 thumbs up from a few from several season pass holders.  It was definitely a bit more rewarding than yesterday it seems.  Not much change as far as conditions, just a bit of stabilization seemed to do the trick.  Another day of 750 CFS, we might just see some consistency!

Hold onto your waders

Things warmed up a bit today, enough that we didn't get snow, but some nice cold rain.  With the water drop and the fair weather, a handful of anglers came out from hibernation, a majority of the anglers having a one or two fish day.  The fish caught most reported to be rosy cheeked but not too colored up otherwise. Season Passholders - We just love to keep you wading.  DSR is actively working to finalize your renewal invitations and payment processes.

Thumbs Up

Is it spring yet? Another single digit morning. But today, finally seeing a nice drop in the dam release to a fan favorite 750 CFS.  Fishing this morning was bone chilling, but also a bit messy with ice and slush to start the day making its way down through the bottom end of the river.  A low pressure day on the run, with a thumbs up report from one of our regular anglers.  Hopefully things will start to warm up here, and we see some stabilization in the dam release.  It was quite an abrupt adjust from 1700 CFS down to 750 CFS this morning.

There are still a few flurries in the air but so far we've only gotten about 8 inches of snow. Even so, it was enough to deter any anglers from spending time on the run today. The parking lot has been cleared and the trails have been cleared to the steps. With an overnight low of 8F forecasted, DSR will operate on a delayed opening tomorrow of 9AM tomorrow morning.

As of 4:30pm, skies remain clear and fields are snow-free, although a few small snow piles remain in the parking lot.

Just one angler decided to have a go at it, a brief trip, but A for effort.  Today's conditions drastically different then yesterdays warm weather.  Temperatures dropped almost 20 degrees since this morning, with strong wind and some flurries on top.  Nothings impossible, but today fishing, just fell short of it.  Hopefully we see the flows drop down just a bit and stabilize as we close out the week here.

A touch of Spring

Guests today were greeted with mild temperatures and sunny skies, a welcome change from the blustery conditions we experienced this past weekend. Of course the warm up meant increased flows and runoff so the fishing was slower than one would have hoped. Still, a handful of anglers came out to enjoy the day and a few were able to get into a fish or two. A nice brown and a couple fresh steelhead were reported.

Hold onto your hats!

What a delightful day!  Things seemed fairly calm for the initial part of this morning, with a bit of slush, a couple of anglers joining us right off the bat, then a few more deciding to follow in their footsteps.  Don't be fooled by the weather here though. With weather changing drastically in the course of minutes, you could see the wall of snow coming at you.  These ultimately surrendered to the blistering wind and complete white out. You had to REALLY want it, to be on the water today.  DSR will have a delayed opening tomorrow 2/20/22, opening at 9:00 AM. Cross our fingers we can kick the wind, maybe trade it for the snow that just comes straight down, and NOT from every direction.

Hitch in the Giddy Up!

And, back to our regularly scheduled routine!  A few fresh inches of snow, and temperatures staying just below 20 F most of the day, made for quite a delightful walk in the park.  A few anglers joined us early this morning, one season pass holder making quick work of things, out by the early afternoon. One of our lodge guests opted to head up river after his success late yesterday down here on the run, indicating another 4 fish upriver to add to his 3 late yesterday afternoon.  River conditions this morning were slushy, carrying on for most of the day today down here on the bottom end of the river.  We expect a bit more of the same tomorrow.  Tonight with a low of 17F, but tomorrow, the wind is going to biggest hitch in the giddy up.  Forecasts call for winds 25-30 MPH with gusts of 40F.  Hold onto your hats!  With overnight forecasts, and impending weather tomorrow, DSR will have a delayed opening tomorrow 2/19/22, Opening 9:00 AM.

The rain began last night, as forecasted, with temperatures approaching 50F today, making for a pretty slick day on all this melting ice and snow.  Another handful of anglers today, not many returning, usually ducking the fair weather days anticipating the popularity.  The anglers we had join us today, all seemed to make pretty brief trips, with no anglers indicating any significant action, or conditions we didn't see down there yesterday. Just in case you missed the snow, we'll see temperatures begin to drop tonight, with a winter weather advisory beginning at 11:00 PM tonight here.  It's Friday, but tomorrow might just prove to be a test of dedication for our steel head angler0s given the impending weather.

20 MPH - PERFECT DRIFTS

We're mid way through February now, with temperatures in the 40's, tomorrow approaching 50F.  Don't be fooled, just a fluke. Temperatures are forecasted to drop again, with rain turning to snow.  A handful of anglers came out to the run today, a few returning from that past few days.  Today was better than yesterday, tougher, but better.  Multiple fish brought to hand from at least one of pass holders, with a few putting one under their belt (not literally).  Yesterday was the ice, today was the wind. 20 MPH is so much fun, makes for the perfect drift.  We'll see what tomorrow's crew has to say. Lighter winds, and we'll trade that in for a bit of rain! That's okay, the fish are already wet, right?

Double Digit....Temperatures

Quite the squall this morning, with a few inches of powdery snow unloading on us.  Temperatures finally crept back up today into the double digits, and we even got a glimpse of the sun! With the snow we got this morning, slush kept anglers off the run for most of the day.  Two season pass holders came out to stretch their legs today, walking out smirking, saying they did triple digits today.  Needless to say, today wasn't an overly production day on the lower end of the river given the slush.

Dime Bright & Rosy Cheeks

A warmer start today, with temperatures sitting at about 40 F for most of the morning. Things have begun to get a bit colder over the course of the day, with snow expected tonight.  A few of our anglers that have joined us over the course of the week, returned for another crack at, along with some other anglers taking advantage of the temperatures.  The first angler off the water, early afternoon, indicated a solid day, going 4 for 4 with 2 of those fish being browns, on a fly rod.  Expectations definitely weren't high today after the past few days, but the first report was certainly encouraging.  With reports from the anglers that joined us in the past dats, its clear, today things picked up a bit.  A majority of the fish landed today were reported to be dime bright steelhead, with a handful of rosy red cheeks in the mix, starting to earn their stripes.

Quite the collective crew of anglers on the run today. Talk about experience!  A total of 5 season pass holders trickled in over the course of the morning, most of them stuck it out through the snowy day.  Today just wasn't the day apparently.  A few of the pass holders that joined us today, joined us yesterday as well.  Reports seemed like night and day. One pass holder landing 8 yesterday. Today, zip, nada, none.  They either weren't there anymore, or they were just turned off today.  Some of the pictures these pass holders have shared with us over the past two days have been a majority of completely chrome steelhead, with only a few colored up.  The snow didn't  accumulate to much today, may an inch or so, no issues with slush reported.

6 More Weeks of Winter!

Well, Punxsutawney Phil says another 6 more weeks of winter!  He might just be right looking at tomorrow's forecast. Today, was another treat, with what felt like t-shirt weather after the past few weeks.  Temperatures reached the low 40's, beginning to melt some of the snow and ice that's accumulated.  A whole bunch of anglers joined us, most beginning early morning.  The high stick today was 3 for 5, making short work of things and headed off the run early this afternoon.  But reports from there indicated things started to die down when the sun started all the melt. It's like adding a glass of ice water, to an already cold bath for the fish. A couple of anglers took my warning for granted the other day, and hoofed it all the way down to Spring Hole, to find nothing but ice!  It's probably going to take a bit of water, or a lot of sun to start breaking some of that big ice down there.  Temperatures will continue to drop over night tonight, with a winter storm warning in effect, rain will turn into snow early morning tomorrow.  I think at some point, when you live up here, there's no reason to check the weather report, just expect snow or some crazy weather.

Breaking Freezing

Balmy but bearable today.  Temperatures broke freezing, only by one degree. We'll take it!  Another handful of anglers took advantage of the heat wave to go break some ice.  All of the anglers we spoke with today were able to hook multiple fish, all bringing at least one fish to hand to include a brown trout.  Our anglers reassured us things are frozen from about Spring hole down, but plenty of opportunities otherwise.  Oh, and anchor ice covering the rocks certainly doesn't make the slippery rocks any less slippery when wading.  It's quite an obstacle course down there, requiring extreme caution with some unstable shelf ice.  Fishing is fun, but not exactly when its from a barge of ice floating down river in the currents.

Warming Up

Things are finally starting to warm up.  We aren't quite over freezing, but heat wave brought some anglers out from hibernation today.  No lights out or banner days by any means, but at least they got to go fishing while we are stuck at work!  Ice has continued to accumulate, with the river frozen over up until about Spring Hole.  You've been warned. I remember a few days hoofing it down there in knee deep snow, to find no water in sight.  But, then again, when it breaks open, you could be that lucky angler.

Conditions certainly weren't promising today, with another bone chilling day.  Needless to say, the run went untouched. Thankfully we are getting a nice work out in, inside this week keeping up with this crazy demand for fall fishing passes!  As the dust settles, we look forward to following up with all of our guests whom have reached out to us in the past several days, expressing their concerns for securing fishing passes in anticipation for their annual trips to the Douglaston Salmon Run.  Rest assured, we are working diligently towards what we are hopeful is nothing but good news for everyone.  We so greatly appreciate everyone's patience, understanding along with the outpour of support as we get through some of these growing pains!

We woke to another morning with temperatures in the single digits which slowly rose into the mid 20's through the day. However, it still wasn't warm enough to keep the run from being unfished again. The good news is the 10 day forecast has a stretch of days at or above freezing for next week.

This weather is WILD.  Temperatures hovered around 40 F today, again with little wind.  With grim forecasts through the end of the month (won't get warmer than 28 F) , a handful of anglers jumped at the opportunity. Several of the anglers that joined us today indicated quite a bit of slush, and ice coming down for most of the day.  This wont be the last of it either, considering that forecast that looming over us.  Fishing wasn't easy today, with a lot of "One for's"today, but also a couple of "Two for's", with one brown reported today.  These fish are taking complete advantage of the vail the ice shelves offer them, making for some tough drifts, and requiring calculated landing opportunities. Due to forecasted conditions, DSR will begin tomorrow with a delayed opening time of 9:00 AM.  Please stay tuned for abbreviations to our schedule due to impending conditions.

With a break in the weather, today wasn't terribly cold, with minimal wind.  Just a couple of anglers blazed the trails today, both having rather short outings indicating a considerable amount of slush in addition to rather unstable shelf ice.  A few takes on the first few couple of casts, but today just wasn't in favor of the anglers, conditions on the river proved to be quite difficult to overcome.

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.

Today was a bit of a luxury, with temperatures finally breaking freezing reaching a high of about 36F.  Another treat, the dam was dropped to 350 CFS at 7:00 AM this morning, making for quite an interesting day. Typically never favorable for anglers when we have a drop during the day.  Between snow melt, and shelf ice beginning to give way with no support from the higher water, things were definitely a bit of a mess in some areas of the run.  Most of our anglers seemed to have a tough go at it today, most with success coming early this morning, before we saw the affects of the water drop. Some of our veteran pass holders, took advantage of the break in the weather and ventured a bit farther today and were rewarded handsomely.  The high stick of the day today went 7 for 9 (covering a lot of ground), bottom bouncing egg sacs.  His theory, it was all luck, with lightly pressured water this past week. Temperatures will begin to drop back down tonight, with a forecasted 23 F at our opening time tomorrow.  And, it's only expected to get colder as the day goes on, projected to drop down to 9 F by closing tomorrow.  Saturday, is even COLDER.  Please stay tuned for announcements surrounding abbreviated hours this weekend in the event of the zub zero temperatures.

Not quite as cold as yesterday, but the wind sure made it feel worse.  Surprisingly, despite this little break in temperatures, we didn't see much angling pressure today.  Two anglers ventured onto the run this afternoon, one first-timer and one veteran pass holder, both float fishing.  They both expressed ice shelfs which were quite difficult to negotiate while fishing in the middle section. But, our pass holder indicated compared to a few days prior, and a slight drop in the water, the ice shelves have started to clear way a bit.  Good news for the middle section, sounds like bad news for the lower end of the run, I can only imagine the piles of ice beginning to claim the banks and runs.  Despite the ice shelfs, our pass holder was able to get plenty of good drifts in, and landed a few fish.  Expectations were set a bit higher for today, but they just weren't having it today.  Temperatures are forecasted to creep past freezing tomorrow, but with snow flurries in the mix.

BELOW ZERO!

Well, we got exactly what was forecasted for this one.  Temperatures dropped dramatically last night, with temperatures around -7 F when we arrived at the office today.  Needless to say, although the run would have felt like a warm bath on a day like today, slush and ice shut things down today for anglers on the river.  With about a foot or so of snowfall here, and untouched water for a couple of days now.  Smells fishy to me. DSR will resume normal hours of operation tomorrow (6:45AM - 5:45PM), with a fair forecast of about 28 F around our opening time.  Just be ready to chip some ice, and blaze some trails!  Winds tomorrow look to be the only trouble in store, until we approach the weekend with some more intensely cold weather.
