Fishing Report January 16, 2020
1/16/2020

Given the messy conditions, abrupt transition to snow mixed with plummeting temperatures, only a handful of anglers made it down onto the run today.  A few of these anglers were able to manage bringing several fish to hand, indicating that were all fresh steelhead this morning.  Productivity tapered off into the afternoon with the rapid decline in temperatures, just seemed to shut them down.  Those who were fortunate enough to bring fish to hand, ALL reiterated, you really had to work for them.

The decent weather brought almost a dozen anglers out on the water today and most were able to bring a couple fish to hand. Reports varied from 2/3, 2/2, 'a good day' but a couple did go home empty handed. The water was running cold and clear 36F. Beads size 8 & 10mm in frosted tangerine and green as well as blue egg sacs proved successful.

Despite the slight reduction in flow, only a few anglers joined us today.  A mixed report from these anglers, half were able to bring several to hand, and half unable to pinpoint them.  Experience on this section of the river in particular, definitely played a role today for those who had success.  Flows are still challenging at 1,600 CFS with less concentration and more area to cover. It's a lot of water to navigate, and digest. Walking pace water, and finding the path of least resistance is key, especially in conditions like these.

Only a few anglers came to join us today in this higher water, with a flow of 2050 CFS at the Pineville gauge.  These anglers were able to get a few despite the water levels, but not a ton.  A couple domestic rainbows in the mix today were a great treat for one group of anglers.  With less rain this past weekend then expected, flows should start reducing here gradually, with the first reduction starting tonight at 7:00 PM tonight down to 1,200 CFS.

CFS 1600 at the dam (until midnight, tonight), 2030 at Pineville to start the day (went up to 2090 by the end of the day) - morning temperatures started at 43 degrees but chilled down to the current 29 degrees as of 3:30 PM (projected overnight low is 25 degrees) - skies remained overcast all day, but a calm morning morphed into strong West winds, 20 to 30 mph and occasionally gusting even stronger - the first angler checked-in at 7 AM and swung flies until 3 PM, in the middle and upper sections, without success . . . he stated this was his second visit to the run and was still learning the water - the second angler was a seasons pass holder who arrived at noon, fished for two hours in the upper section, and brought to hand a Brown Trout and "dark" Steelhead - both anglers commented that the winds were "brutal" - a guide is currently on the run with two clients, but I do not have any report from them - tomorrow's forecast is for cloudy skies, a few flurries or snow showers possible, high of 41 degrees, with southeast winds of 5 to 10 mph

It may have been the threat of rain (that really didn't materialize all that much) and the threat of higher (or higher) water that kept anglers away today, but it really was a pretty good day (weather-wise) on the run.  The river was a bit high, but not all that bad.  As one angler mentioned this morning "It's a bit high, but fishable and it didn't seem that the water was moving too terribly fast." A handful anglers ventured were able to get a few tugs on the line, two center pin angler's got into some fish this morning ("but couldn't keep them on. They either threw the  hook or broke the tippet." Keep a close eye on the water flows,  We didn't get much rain today, but I would guess the warmer temperatures are melting the snowpack up in the Tug Hill.If the release from the dam (safewaters.com) reaches 2,000 CFS or greater, DSR will be closed for fishing.

It was a tough day on the run with the recent bump in flows, but a handful of anglers ventured out and were able to get a few tugs on the line and one even brought a nice rainbow to hand. The morning water temperature was 34F and anglers noted the water was running clear.

A duo of anglers were the only ones to brave the frigid temperatures today, before the impending warmer and rainy weather gets here.  These anglers reported a pretty tough battle early this morning with temps in the mid teens, and a fair amount of slush coming down the bottom end of the river here.  They managed to get a few fish, but it definitely took some persistence and a lot of walking to find them in the higher water.  A flood warming has been issued in the area for this coming weekend.  Please keep an eye on the SafeWaters dam release, as well as the Pineville gauge should you anticipate fishing this weekend.  Flows will  increase at 5:30PM tonight (1/9) to 1600 CFS.  DSR will remain open for fishing unless the dam release exceeds 2,000 CFS.

We had a handful of anglers venture out on the run today and a couple of fish were brought to hand despite the wind, snow and bump in flows. A heavy snow band moved through this morning, but we only picked up an inch or two. Water was clear and cold.

Just over a dozen anglers joined us for the greater part of the day today.  With bearable, and certainly more comfortable conditions today, some of the anglers who joined us yesterday were able to redeem themselves.  Nearly all of our anglers reported getting into steelhead today, some faired better than others with a common 1 and 2's theme today. Overall, a good day on the water.
