9/27/21 5:40pm


Current Dam Release: 350 CFS / Pineville Gauge: 529 CFS / Current Water Temp: 65 F


Overall it has been an excellent day of salmon fishing here at DSR. For most, the day started off fast with good action. As the sun came up, the lower and middle sections of the run slowed some and remained at a slow to steady pick throughout the day. The upper part of our 'middle' section and our 'upper' section remained very steady to excellent throughout the day. Most of the day's action was with cohos but kings were more prominent in the lower section. A few brown trout were reported and the steelhead had their strongest showing of the year to this point. 


Tonight's weather is forecasted to be cloudy, low of 52 F, and light & variable winds. Tomorrow's forecast calls for cloudy skies early with partial clearing in the PM. High of 62 degrees and North wind 5-10 MPH. The flow cast predicts a dam release of 350 CFS through midnight on 10/1/21.


DSR has recently had a cancellation at our River Lodge for this Wednesday (9/29) through Friday (10/1) nights (check-out Saturday 10/2).

Yesterdays lull on the run was truly the "calm before the storm." Everyone had an excellent day from sunrise to sunset from top to bottom. Although Kings were obviously around, the Cohos had an immense presence, including some of the largest specimens we've seen so far this season. With this fresh push of fish, we should see a fun week ahead with plenty of bent rods and smiling faces.

Water flow from the dam remains at 350 cfs and the flow at the Pineville gauge is 505 cfs

Fishing Report September 26 Morning
9/26/2021

At 9:46 Am River Patrol reported excellent presence of fish throughout the run with a good mix of Kings and lots of fresh Coho. The lower end indicated that two separate pushes of fish occurred so far today with the first being at first light and the second push around 8:30 AM.  Good hook ups and actions throughout the run.  Early rain has moved away and appears to be staying north of us. An excellent day to be on the run.  

Fishing Report 9/25/21
9/25/2021

Although a beautiful day, the lull of fish movement was apparent. With most action seen in middle to upper reaches of the run, the anglers who put in an entire days effort were rewarded. Most fish movement reported were Kings, with some Cohos and Brown Trout making their presence known as well in the lower reaches of the run.

Water flow from the dam remains at 350 cfs and the flow at the Pineville gauge is 511 cfs

Fishing Report Sept 25 AM
9/25/2021

Reports from the run at 8:45 this morning was that the upper end of our run was seeing a mix of Coho and Kings "not a lot, but enough", some Coho and Kings through the mid section of the run with things a bit slower toward the lower end but all three channels of the estuary at the bottom of the run are "full of fish."

REMINDER : * September 24  marks DSR's shift in hours of operation, in consideration of daylight hours.  Please see below for an updated angler release schedule between the dates of 9/24 and 10/7.  Check-in for each angling category, is 15 minutes before release.


While there were many satisfied anglers fishing the run today, the consensus overall from anglers and River Patrol alike, was that it was a more difficult bit today.  That being said, there were, proportionally, a lot more Coho than Kings in the run today.  Of course, as we all know, Coho tend not to hang around too long so many anglers reported seeing them go by.  The early presence of Browns seems to be a thing of the past, at least for know, and no reported sightings of and Steelhead.


Water flow from the dam remains at 350 cfs and the flow at the Pineville gauge is 529 cfs

With today's rain, it was almost a sure bet we'd see some new fish entering the river today.  This morning's report of a good quantity of fish pushing up, was definitely apparent with the reports received from anglers fishing the middle and upper portions of the property today.  However, the lower part of the property reporting very little activity after the fish seen earlier in the day.  A mix of both kings and cohos were caught today with the trout laying low in the recent days.  Water temperatures began at a recorded 62 F this morning, and approached 66 F this afternoon.  We are uncertain the total rainfall for today, because its still raining, but surely approaching several inches after todays storms.  That being said, please be sure to check SAFE WATERS posted dam release before beginning your journeys tomorrow.

Cloudy conditions for the better part of the day, but by mid afternoon (until closing) we received a good amount of rain which can only contribute to improving conditions. And speaking of "improving conditions" that is what happened today.  While we have seen some improved the past servers days over the preceding day, today was a major improvement over the past several days.   Almost all anglers that I spoke with had an excellent day.  Today was a very good day to be on the run.  I received may "thumbs up" and big smiles from many of the anglers as they left the run (sometimes soaking wet).Many fish were brought to hand and there was a good mix of Kings and Coho and. clearly, the Coho presence increased  considerably from the past several days.  With the rain that we received today, the dropping temperatures, and the rain expected for tomorrow I expect things to get very interesting very soon.


Water flow from the dam remains at 350 cfs and at the Pineville gauge the flow is 494 cfs (ticking up due to the rain we received this afternoon)

Fishing Report 9-21-2021
9/21/2021

Todays fishing was reported better than yesterday, which most anglers found challenging. Mid-day reports indicated that most of the action was during the morning, but a consistent report was that the action in the mid and upper sections were steady. Most anglers, while not getting into significant numbers of fish, were able to pick at them throughout the day. There were few reports of Coho, however most fish brought to hand were Kings. The lower sections of the run saw the least action of the day.

Fishing Report September 20, 2021
9/20/2021

With temperatures dropping into the low 50’s last night, there was quite a bit of anticipation this morning. But, even with recent low overnight temperatures, our daytime temperatures have creeped close to 80 F. Water temperatures recorded this morning at 61 F, followed by a mid day recording of 68 F.  The cool overnight didn’t quite seem to give our anglers the push of fish they were looking for.  Activity remained quiet for most of the day today, predominantly king salmon, with very few indications of trout in the mix today. It seemed like a majority of our anglers were able to get into a handful of fish. But, as always, angling experience on this river pays dividends on a “quiet” day. The good news, our forecasted temperatures are beginning to drop as we close out the month of September, hopefully triggering the push of fish we are all waiting for.
