June/July 2012 Rochester Fishing Report

    Trout and Salmon Fishing out of Rochester has been absolutely awesome this year. It started early in the spring with tremendous Brown Trout activity and early Kings showing up on the South Shore due to the warm weather conditions. We have successfully transitioned offshore with a continued good bite East and West of the Rochester Harbor. Each day out has been providing a good variety of Kings, Browns, Lake Trout and Steelhead.  Don’t miss this action. The exiting and hugely anticipated piece is what can we expect size wise this Fall with early May and June providing many 30lb Kings. This Fall is likely to be one of the best since the early 80’s.
