2013 Trout and Salmon Update

    We experienced a real stable spring brown and coho bite early on. 3rd week of April produced a week long stint of spring kings then they disappeared. Browns, lakers and steelhead stayed steady through June. Finally July the silver bite heated up for the ROC early in the month and has stayed pretty consistent. Good King and Steelhead chew with browns and lakers still readily available. Big fish showing along the whole South shoreline. Copper action has been the most consistent.
