My Instagram is blowing up with messages from anglers on the river right now. There is fish movement from Douglaston Salmon Run to end of 81. This is not a full on run but a consistent movement of not even small pods but I’m calling it nano pods of twos and threes of fish moving through. Again not a major run but even DSR is reporting this morning the following.
The above image of the fish comes from @mikelaux on Instagram and he added a nice report.
This also comes from @mikelaux of his buddy’s fish.
Today was at DSR saw about 30 fish was there at first light 3-5 fish were moving in at a time then maybe 30 min later another pod of them will move in from the whole time I was there but there was hooking up and fish starting moving in from the lake. Also all the fish are very fresh and are running very hard through the run.
I’m hearing the same thing up and down to 81 and fish are pushing really hard through. Looks like these early fish are not stopping and racing to the hatchery.
