Operations Update March 28th, 2020
3/28/2020

To our DSR Community,

We take a moment to share a simple ‘Thank You’ with all our guests for your patience and continued support through this unprecedented time in world history. As our New York residents know, all non-essential businesses were closed by the Governor a week ago in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. 

A week later, we are happy to report that our management team is now fully equipped to serve you remotely. Our normal lines of communication are operational and we encourage guests to contact us via phone (315-298-6672) or email customerservice@douglastonsalmonrun.com so that we may assist with your needs. 

We urge our community to follow their established COVID public health guidelines to ensure the future well-being of all and we eagerly look forward to re-opening the run to fishing as soon as it’s safe for us to do so. 

Sincerely, 

-Garrett and The DSR Staff

Good conditions, but a tough bite today.  A few less anglers on the run today than in the past few days.  Of the anglers we spoke with, most indicated being able to get into a fish or two with low landing percentages, and then some skunked. Fish or no fish,  all were happy to find an outlet for an escape right now!

Even with the water and weather stabilizing today, it was a slow pick for our guests. Interestingly, most of the fish brought to hand were noted to be darker fish that have been in the river for a little while. Of course, there was a fresh chromer or two caught but they were the exception not the rule today. Smaller beads were noted to have taken some bites for our guests fishing floats. Stone fly type patterns remained the most productive for our fly fishing guests. The water temperature this morning was taken at 8am and was 34 degrees.

Happy St. Patrick's Day Everyone!

It's been a real mixed bag of reports today but overall it seemed like the fishing was better this morning before the rain began making its way into the river. Even though a few guests worked hard for a bite or two they still got bit. Others reported doing pretty well actually. Our bait anglers reported that egg sacks outproduced other baits today. Our fly fishing guests reported that stone flies were top producers with glo bugs and wooly bugger type patterns also taking strikes. The majority of the fish caught were still chrome but we had a few more 'grey' colored fish caught today than previous days. The weather and flows finally both look like they'll be stable tomorrow, hopefully that's a good omen!

A NOTE TO OUR DSR FAMILY: 

Even in light of the current COVID-19 outbreak, DSR plans to remain open. We are making adjustments to our check in process and other operations to ensure the safety of our guests and our staff. The Welcome Center will only be open only to staff and guest check-ins will be exchanged through a window in the breezeway similar to our system in the fall. Our main ticket booth restrooms remain open to our guests at this time. That said, if you're feeling sick or think you may have been exposed to someone with COVID, please stay home. This will help prevent further spread and allow us to continue to provide an opportunity for folks to escape the chaos of our current world situation and relax with some quality time on the water. We also ask our guests to practice social distancing both when checking in and while on the water. DSR will close if a government agency directs us to, if a local outbreak is eminent, or if staff members are affected resulting in limited man power. -Stay tuned as information, processes, and ultimately our ability to stay open may change on any given day. Our very best to you and your families in this difficult time. 

On to the fishing report! Another day, another morning drop in the water flow... One guest who got here early to beat the water drop had a nice morning landing a beautiful chromer and playing with several others using beads. Our second guest was swinging flies and was able to bring a nice steelhead to hand before the water drop hit. Our guests who joined us later in the morning had a tougher go as the fish went off the bite as the water was receding. The few guests who came in for the afternoon also had a decent outing as the bite picked back up later this afternoon/evening as the fish adjusted to the new flow. 

*Reminder - Renewing DSR Season Passholders submit a deposit or payment in full for their 2020-2021 passes by April 1st, 2020.  Please be sure to check your email for renewal instructions. Reminders were emailed out this morning.

After a brief intermission due to high water, we are back in action!  A handful of anglers joined us today, trickling onto the run throughout the day.  An initial dam release scheduled was for 1,500 CFS and was again altered at some point last night, to 1,200 CFS beginning at 7:00 AM this morning (3/15).  Water drops always prove to be a difficult hurdle for most, but a couple of our anglers prevailed today, each bringing a fish to hand.  The fish caught today were in their spawning stages.  We should expect to see a pick up in activity as the water begins to settle.
