Have fun, John
Last oct. was my first trip ever to the SR. I spent 12 GREAT days from oct 19th to oct 30 th.

I take the opportunity of this thread to make a review of my trip, while I'm preparing this year trip:

I found the words of mt_flyfisher so true ! For exemple, my first 2 days was really bad (no fish in 2 days except a zombi salmon, maybe lining...) In other hand, my 3 rd day was spectacular (for me !) with 11 hook ups and 6 fish landed. (all with egg flies). The rest of the trip was a kind of "hit or miss" with 0 fish day, 2/3 fish day, and an other spectacular day with more than 10 hook ups. 2 regrets of this first trip: I can't be able to land a brown trout, and (maybe the worst !) while my boots was drying (hours befor my plane), I went to the L. fly zone. In 1 hour, I saw almost every guys around landing a fih

I fished the first day with Nick Coppola of slickwater adventures. A very nice guy ! Unfortunatly, the fishing conditions was tought (steelhead had the mouth shut) and a lot of crowd fishing (snagging) zombi salmons.

This time, I'll get a little later (early to mid Nov.) Maybe I'll go with Randy Jones or Joe Vivenzio. An other great guide is Tony Gugino. But he's booked until end of Nov 2014....

Looks like you have been given good guide candidates.

Even though you are locked into dates, start following the Douglaston Salmon Run website (Douglaston Salmon Run, World-Class Salmon Fishing << Douglaston Salmon Run northeast Salmon fishing Steelhead Coho Bass fishing upstate NY >>) in late Sept/early Oct. Being the first stop for steelies coming in from Lake Ontario, you get a good look at when and the number of fish from the daily reports they post.

Not sure about the DSR comment below. Rates may go up but number of fishermen won't go down. The advantage of the DSR is fresh 'chrome' coming into the river.

Good luck and have fun!

From what I hear. The rates are going to go up a lot and they will also limit the number of anglers allowed to fish at any given time. That's just what I hear.

Douglaston Salmon Run passes are $50 in 2014. Their limit is 350 fishermen per day. Seems like a lot of people. DSR runs 2.5 miles so maybe not too bad.
