FIshing Report 11/12/18

Today was very much a repeat of yesterday, with many anglers getting into a few fish or more, while others deemed it a tough day on the run. Either way, all anglers agreed that conditions were much better than what we saw over the weekend with the snow and wind. Water flows are forecasted to remain at 500cfs through midnight on Tuesday. Rain will move overnight with a quarter of an inch expected. Tomorrow will have a high of 39F with a mix of rain and snow showers, winds WNW 10-20mph.

Fishing Report November 11

A chilly, but pleasant day with plenty of sunshine and no snow.  Most angler's that fished the run today were able to get into a fish or two with some doing much better than that.  Not a great day, but a very good day with sufficient action to keep everyone occupied and entertained. And most that I have spoken with indicated that there are still considerable numbers of steelhead in the run.  Egg sacks and beads seemed to have the upper hand today, but swinging flies were also able to get into some fish.  The water from the reservoir remains at 500 cfs thorough midnight Monday and the current flow at the Pineville gauge is 818 cfs (down slightly fromthis morning).

Fishing Report November 10,2018

The winds today proved to be extremely difficult for ALL of our anglers, but those who beared through the bitter gusts, were rewarded with a few steelhead!  We definitely didn't see the forecasted snow, earlier in the day at least. As I sit here writing this report, I cannot see much further than 20 ft off in the distance with white out conditions!  The good news, forecasts for tomorrow look much calmer, with some sun in the morning, increasing clouds during the afternoon.  A few flurries or snow showers are possible.  High of 37 F.  Winds WNW at 10 to 15 MPH. 

Fishing Report 11/9

Anglers today reported another decent day on the run with plenty of aggressive steelies keeping things interesting. A number of anglers reported hooking into several steelies, but landing them proved more difficult. We had one report of a brown being landed as well. The wind picked up this afternoon and we saw some of the white stuff mixing in with the rain. Tomorrow looks to be a tough day weather-wise, with a mix of snow, rain and wind. Be sure to bundle up if you plan to head out on the water! Flows will remain at 500cfs through midnight Saturday. 

Fishing Report November 8, 2018

Things are on the up and up as the flows begin to go down.  Most of our anglers, even those who spent only a few hours fishing had an exceptional day down on the run today.  The release will go down to 500 CFS at 9 PM tonight (11/8).  Tomorrow's forecast calls for another cloudy day with occasional rain in the afternoon.  High of 41 F. Winds ESE at 10 to 20 MPH.  

Fishing Report November 7, 2018

Most of the anglers that joined us again today during this high water were rewarded with a fish here and there but no significant numbers. On a brighter note, release schedules have been posted, good bye high water! The fish have had some time to settle in, now its game on! The dam release schedule is as follows...

Until 9:00 PM today, 1,200 CFS

From 9:00 PM today until 9:00 PM tomorrow, Thu, 750 CFS
From 9:00 PM tomorrow until 11:59 PM tomorrow, 500 CFS

Tomorrow's forecast calls for morning showers, becoming more intermittent in the afternoon.  High of 43F.  Winds W at 10 to 15 MPH. 

Fishing Report November 6, 2018

Another day of higher water, with a release of 1200 CFS at the dam with a reported flow of 1630 CFS at the Pineville gauge as of this afternoon.  The weather held out and did not bring as much rain as was forecasted, a handful of anglers seized the opportunity and were able to land a few fish down on the run today. The release at the dam will remain at 1200 CFS until 12 PM Wednesday 11/7/18.  Tomorrow's forecast calls for showers in the morning, with a cloudy afternoon.  High of 49 F. Winds WSW 15 to 25 MPH.  

Fishing Report 11/5/18

Anglers today reported a mix of steelies, rainbows, and browns. None in any large numbers, but enough to keep things interesting. The upper half of the run seemed more productive and leaves were not a huge problem in the morning, but became more of a nuisance as the day wore on. The water clarity was reported as clear. 

Water flows will be 1200cfs through midnight on Tuesday. Weather-wise, Pulaski is currently under a gale warning with rain and winds (SSE 15-25mph) expected for tomorrow. 

fishing report 4 Nov 18

CFS 1600 (until midnight Monday) / 1960 - quite a change in the weather patterns from this past week - a dead calm, partly (mostly) sunny day, hovering in the high 30s - water temperature was 44 degrees this morning - we had a good group of about 40 clients venture out starting early this morning all the way until mid-afternoon - as I received reports from River Patrol and clients, there were some trends noted: about a quarter of the clients were relatively new to both the river and Steelhead fishing - only one reported hooking up a fish - the vast majority of the other clients were either season pass holders or relatively experienced in both Steelhead fishing and specifically fishing the DSR - this group fared a little better, but not by much - the comments were "very few fish in the river today", "didn't touch one", "hooked up once", etc. - the last group, a minority, like to fish higher water, specifically as these individuals know exactly where the Steelhead lay and once you can get into them its like panning for gold!  The hookup ratio was (relatively) much higher among this last group, with a high of three brought to hand being reported.  In this high water I would suggest fishing: right along the bank, within inches, particularly wherever the bank has the smallest projection into the flow as the fish stack up behind those projections; again, along the bank, particularly where there is a relatively large cutout that allows a few fish respite from the current; along seams between fast and slower water; in the back eddies typical of areas where the water is channelized then abruptly flows into a larger pool of water (i.e. Little Black, Glide, Meadows); bouncing right on the bottom as the current is broken up by debris to a remarkable degree; in small side channels of the river; behind obvious obstacles, such as boulders, that serve to break the flow and create a small area for fish to lie within - good luck.     

Evening fishing report 11/3/18

The high water continues, with a posted flow of 1650 CFS at the dam until 4 PM today, where will be dropped to 1600 CFS until Monday night. No further release schedule has been posted.  The leaf bite has continued hinder the abilities of our fisherman along with this flow, with a recorded flow of 1980 CFS at the Pineville gauge as of this afternoon. A handful of fisherman joined us today, most reported little to no success as pushed along through the day today.  The fish are there, they just seem to not be feeding at the moment as they have seemingly struggled to acclimate themselves to water fluctuation.  Tomorrows forecast calls for mostly sunny skies (Finally!) with a high of 47 F. Winds light and variable.

*Note – The DSR remains open for fishing unless the posted release at the DAM is 2,000 CFS or above.*
