April-May-June Rochester 2011 Trout and Salmon

    The fishery has been very good to us on the front side of the season, the weather a different story.  April right off the bat served up some of the best Brown Trout fishing ever. Great shoreline fishing both East and West of the Genesee produced a mixed bags of Browns, Coho’s and Steelhead.  This inshore fishery carried later than normal into and through the month of May and transitioned later in the month to an offshore Steelhead bite as well with some Kings showing up.  Early June we still had a good inshore fishery with Browns and offshore surface breaks providing anglers with good Steelhead, Coho and Laker top water action. As usual at some point in June we go through a transition period as the surface temps push down setting up a thermocline and the fish are scattered as they try to find their comfort zone.   Stay tuned for more updates.
