I used to go up every year in the early part of OCT but gradually moved my dates further back to target steel and avoid the crowds, Way back when, I've been going about 20yrs, it was an absolute mob scene. When they banned snagging it got a little better now with the gas prices it will probably thin out even more. The DSR did not have one sold out day this past season, hope it's a sign of things to come. I may take a few days and go up early this year not sure yet. I'll keep you in mind if I do.
As Juro mentioned the fishery has a rather tainted reputation and rightly so. It is frustating to see some of the methods used but you can still have a good time and usually catch some fish fairly if you fish for them correctly.
