Fishing Report Week Ending 7/8/18

Wish I had a better fishing report, but between having two trips cancel for medical reasons, and not finding any biters on the days I did fish, it was a challenging week out on the river. There's been a few fish caught every day by the fleet, and incrementally it got better as the week wore on (much better than the adverse), but overall the fishing has been slow. Thanks, Francis, for sharing a photo of your fish, and special thanks to Rich, Bob, Sam, and Lynn for being patient in the boat. Your attitudes eased the sting of fishless days.
I hate to say it, but so far in July we're experiencing more anglers than fish. The king sonar count is ahead of the 2015 run, but it's behind 2016 and 2017. There's no need to hit the panic button just yet. It's still early in the run and the true strength won't be known for another week or two. 
In the meantime, we're going to keep plugging along and enjoy the ride.

See you next week for a full fishing report. I'm going to try my best to make sure there's more fish photos than caribou photos.

Honesty is the best policy. Thanks for the report.

Update on the sonar counts. We are now ahead of last year’s run. That’s good news.
