Welcome center not very welcoming. Asked best place to fish and was told "in the river". For 75 bucks I'd at least expect a map or some hints. First time visitor, you are pretty much on your own to determine where to go and without...More

I had a blast fishing at the DSR! I fished last fall and caught 2 kings and a coho. The DSR was very welcoming, clean, and had nice bathrooms. Their private access of the Salmon River is wonderful and is never too crowded. I highly...More

The Douglaston is a pay to fish section of the salmon river located at the mouth of the river and offers world class fishing. Buy tickets well in advance to secure a fishing pass
