The fishing continues to be better than average. We have seen light but steady runs of fish daily. There is no big push of fish at one time. The fish just keep trickling in for most of the day. This is making for some consistent fishing. Work the water and you will get in to a few fish. There is a real potential for a heavy push of fish. The reports coming out of the estuary is that there is a lot of salmon in and waiting to move. Who knows what will trigger these fish to move, but they will go when they are good and ready. We have seen Coho salmon and now a few steel head next in with the Chinook salmon. This is very early for the steelhead, but good fun when hook.

Water flows continued to remain consistent at 335 CFS, for now. We have received consistent rainfall over the past couple weeks. The rainfall that we received few days ago has raised the water level to overflowing in the reservoir. Water flow prediction for this coming week is three days of water flows at 500 CFS starting on Monday. This should put the fishing into high gear. As always cold windy and rainy weather always makes for good fishing.

For flies, so far size 6 and 4 black and silver buggers, and black and copper bunny flies in the same size, have been the work force. When it comes to Coho salmon this fall they seem to definitely have a preference for hot pink. When Coho are around it doesn't seem to matter is long as the fly has some hot pink mixed in.

If you're interested in seeing just how big some of these fish are, I still have prime days available both September and October. Keep in mind that the normal guide fees will include the access fees for two people in to the DSR. This is a $90 value. If you have any questions feel free to call my cell at 585-233-0436. Or call the fly shop at 585-352-4775.
Please keep in mind when try to contact me on my cell phone. I am often in and out of good reception zones. Please be persistent or leave a message and I will return your call as soon as I can.
