Trout and Salmon Fishing Report 6/12/2014

    The spring has been very good to Rochester. We experienced kings right from the get go along with our wonderful brown trout fishery in 8 to 15 fow along both Eastern and Western shorelines. As of recent over these past couple weeks in June we have experienced a jumbo steelhead fishery in 150 to 250 fow that has been awesome. Still seeing some king activity in 80 to 110 fow.
