COMMENTS FOR THE WEEK
The weather and water conditions were less than idea this week. Everyone had great attitudes and made the best of it and still caught lots of fish. The river coming up has helped to flush some Silvers in. Still lots of Chums, Kings and Sockeyes and they are all
starting to spawn.
