Make Sure You Bring

Fishing in this neck of the woods has its own requirements, and a little preparation can go a long way toward making your visit to Douglaston Salmon Run comfortable, safe, and satisfying.

 

Clothing

The weather around here can go to extremes-sometimes in the same day! So you want to be prepared for just about anything. Our advice is to dress in layers.

  • Moisture-wicking layer
  • Insulating layer
  • Rain gear and/or wind breaker (in earth tones that don't spook the fish!)
  • Insulated hat and gloves
  • Full waders; breathable stocking foot with wading boots or neoprene boot/stocking foot
  • Fishing vest/back pack
  • Polarized sun glasses
  • Wading staffs, wader belts, and personal flotation devices

And if there's anything you've forgotten, there's a store nearby that can provide just what you need. Check out our list of local retail operations. In addition, corkers (stream cleats) are always a good idea, but they are absolutely required for any fishing after Nov. 1.
