fishing report 3 Dec '20
12/3/2020

the day started at a chilly 33 degrees but, over the course of the day we reached our forecasted high of 44 degrees - mostly cloudy in the morning changed to partly cloudy with plenty of sunshine throughout the afternoon - forecasted 10 to 15 mph winds were not evident; it was a calm day and "a great day to be out" - CFS was 500 at the dam / 697 at Pineville - 50 guests ventured out onto the run, trickling in from a shotgun start at 6:15 and then throughout morning into early afternoon - guests started leaving mid-morning, reporting "2s and 3s", with a cryptic "we did alright" from a pair of guests - high rod went to a guide and his client, with 3 / 4 Steelhead - as the day progressed, reports ranged from 2 / 6, 2 / 3, down into 1s - mostly Steelhead, although Brown Trout were brought to hand - towards closing, as more anglers left, reports picked up numbers wise, with 2s and 3s more common, typically Steelhead, again with a Brown Trout here and there - one angler brought two Brown Trout to hand (using orange estaz flies) - unfortunately, despite the relative success of most of our guests, three clients got skunked - beads and blue egg sacks under bobbers were the top producers, again - one guest asked us to remind guests in general to practice the proper and ethical release of fish brought to hand; common mishandling seems to be: placing fish on rocks, grass, or dirt for pictures . . . holding fish out of water for more time than an immediate picture . . . squeezing fish organs, or fish against the body, and gilling them, as control measures . . . when these fish are eventually released, they initially seem fine, but eventually they grow fungus that covers their bodies due to their protective slime having been removed, or suffer irreparable damage to their organs from rough handling or flopping around on rocks . . . as a River Patrol, I have found them in quiet backwaters looking like furry balls, or washed ashore without evident cause of mortality . . . please, allow these magnificent gamefish to survive the stresses of the rigors of winter more ably by minimizing their handling out of water - hours are 6:15 AM to 5:30 PM - we will have passes for sale tomorrow, please purchase them online beforehand if you can, or at the ticket booth tomorrow - overnight low 36 degrees, 70% chance of rain showers in the morning becoming a steady light rain in the afternoon, high 42F, winds SSW at 10 to 15 mph
Fishing Report December 2
12/2/2020

Snow showers with little accumulation this morning gave way to partly clearing skies this afternoon with strong, increasing winds.  About a dozen and a half anglers braved the elements to join us on the run and from the reports that I received, fishing was challenging.  Not as good numbers reported today as in the previous couple of days.  One's and two's (with a couple better than that) rather than the three's and four's of previous reports. The Brookfield water flow has not been updated at this hour (4:40 PM) and I assume that it will remain at 500 cfs and the current flow at Pineville remains at 690 cfs.

Fishing Report December 1, 2020
12/1/2020

Another spurt of much needed rain here the past 2 days, resulting in a bump in the flow. The dam release was increased to 500 CFS, and boy does it feel good to finally have some water after a long spell of low water.  A few dozen anglers joined us over the past 2 days.  It certainly didn't seem like anyone had a "banner day" down on the run, but certainly an enjoyable time, with plenty of fish to keep it interesting. The common report we received was 3-4 fish brought to hand by anglers.  Some with a few more.  A fair number of brown trout still being caught in the mix, and fresh steelhead still rolling in.  Several rather larger steelhead reported (30"+/ weighing in the teens) over the past few days, the ones that will make you consider hanging up your boots, and calling it an early retirement in your fishing career.  The majority of the run proved to be productive, with the middle and lower sections seeming to have report the most activity.  Flows are scheduled to remain at 500 CFS until 11:59 tonight (12/1).

Fishing Report Nov 29, 2020
11/29/2020

Today was another challenging day for anglers on the run. Reports were primarily 2's and 3's for steelhead but a few browns were also mixed in. All in all, everyone agreed that the sunshine and mild temps made up for the slow day of fishing. The morning water temp was 38F and rose to 40F by mid afternoon. Water flows are scheduled to bump up to 500cfs at 9PM tonight.

Fishing Report November 27
11/27/2020

After a report of some good action right after first light (particularly in the middle section) things slowed down for the balance of the day. While there were some Steelhead and Browns brought to hand, most anglers reported very little action.  Tomorrow looks to be sunny and warmer than today and maybe the fishing will improve as well.  Water from the dam remain at 335 cfs and the current flow at the Pineville gauge is 494 cfs

From 27 Nov - 10 Dec we will be open 6:15 AM - 5:30 PM

fishing report 25 Nov '20
11/25/2020

we will be open 6:00 AM until 2:00 PM tomorrow, 26 November - if we do not see you here, in behalf of the DSR I extend our hope that our extended "family" all have a bountiful Thanksgiving, with either in person (or telecommuting) family and friends with whom to share the day!

the morning started out low 40s, and we only reached our forecasted high of 47 degrees at the time of this report (4 PM) - water temperature hovering around 40 degrees - overcast all day, but we never had any of the forecasted rain - winds were relatively light and variable, so, all in all, good weather to be on the run - CFS 335 / 482

we had a high of 35 guests fishing the run today, with some leaving early and others arriving as late as 4 PM "for a few casts" - my shift turnover in-briefing at noon made no particular mention of the quality of the fishing - the initial report, at 12:49 PM, was from two seasoned anglers who indicated zero fish . . . I thought "oh, oh . . . , not going to be a good day in Flatrock . . . " - however, I was astounded by the reports thereafter - of the twelve anglers who came off the run, in singles or pairs, nobody reported not having had any success - 2 / 3 small to 28" Steelhead, fishing beads in pocket water; a 28" Brown Trout fishing a 3" streamer down low; 5 / 9 for Steelhead, to include a 30" and big Domestic Rainbow, fishing 10mm natural beads; 6 / 12 Steelhead (including a large Domestic) drifting 8mm UV roe; 1 / 3 Steelhead; 1 / 2 Steelhead swinging an Intruder; 1 / 2 (a 15" Brown Trout); 2 Steelhead (only here about an hour); 0 / 3 Steelhead (only here a couple of hours); with the high rod reporting 7 / 9 for 5 to 8 # Brown Trout and 11 / ? Steelhead swinging stone flies and egg patterns primarily in the middle section, although some of his action was from both upper and lower sections

from 27 Nov - 10 Dec we will be open 6:15 AM - 5:30 PM

Fishing Report Nov 24, 2020
11/24/2020

While the weather improved over recent days (today was cold, but sunny), the fishing was still challenging. Of the anglers we spoke with, many reported having a tough day, but we did have a handful report 2's and 3's for fresh steelies. We also had a few browns reported of decent size.

Fishing Report November 23
11/23/2020

Another raw day on the run with a mix of sun and clouds and general overcast skies. A raw wind for most of the day contributed to less-than-pleasant conditions on the run. The fishing din't help all that much either. Most anglers that I talked with were able to get into a fish or two, but ones and two's were the order of the day. Steelhead in varying sizes and still good numbers of browns continuing to make their presence known. The water continues to tick up slightly and the flow at Pineville currently is 500 cfs. Tomorrow looks to be colder than today with a warm up starting on Wednesday

22 Nov '20 fishing report
11/22/2020

22 Nov '20 fishing report: air temperature remained in the high 30s throughout the day - the forecasted rain never materialized, however there were several attempts at snowing, with almost a frozen drizzle falling, mixed with a few flakes, none of which stuck on the ground - the ESE winds were fairly constant and relatively strong, with occasional stronger gusts - despite the blustery weather we had nearly 70 guests venture out throughout the early morning - the first of these trickled out steadily, starting around 10:30 AM, either for a break or to travel home - reports were fairly consistent, comprised of ones, twos, and threes, with high rod honors going to a pair of anglers with 9 between them - there was a mix of both small and large Steelhead, a lot of Domestic Rainbows competing for largest fish for the day, and a range of Brown Trout from stream sized to some true lunkers - a group of four youthful anglers reported being skunked, but oddly I also had a couple of seasoned anglers reporting scoring zero today - centerpinners did better than most others, and beads were the best lure on the run today, but the one consistent factor reported by highly successful anglers was "I walked a lot of ground" -

the forecast for tomorrow is for considerable cloudiness, occasional rain showers in the afternoon, high 42F, winds WNW at 10 to 20 mph, with the chance of rain at 40%.

Fishing Report November 21
11/21/2020

The weather was not as pleasant as it was yesterday with temperatures in the low 40's rather than the low 60's of yesterday.  Fishing reports from today were very similar to the reports from yesterday.  Not horrible, but definitely not tougher bite than earlier this week.  Movement, again, was a key to success as well as changing patterns often.  Still most anglers were able to get in a few fish (some more some less). Still getting reports of good numbers of quality browns and that is becoming one of the story lines of the season so far.  One fortunate angler was able to bring a beautiful Atlantic to hand and one that was released to spawn and live another day. The kind of fish that is a capstone for anyone's season. Water flow remains at 335 cfs from the dame and is currently 459 at Pineville.
