Justin and I fished below Woodson Bridge today near Corning and found what seemed to be a bite that was a little more so on the quiet side than the last few days.  Not nearly as many salmon rolling and the morning bite was relatively short.  Patiance and persistence helped us land 8 King salmon for our clients today and some were lost throughout the day as well.  We're making the best of every day and working hard to get clients on some salmon.  We've had some great days, but we have yet to see any really big pushes of salmon on a continuous basis. The fishing is very worthwhile and should still get much better with the time of the year and the presence of a big moon this week.
