We're fishing every day and although we're seeing a lot of fish in the river, the past few days have turned off a bit, although most are still catching a salmon or two and some guys are finding more than a few daily.  Looking at reports down river, I'm seeing sizeable schools heading our way daily.  The size of these Kings have been impressive and that makes this years run very special.  I fished a great group today and Lauren hooked and landed her very first King salmon weighing in at 24 lbs.  Congratulations and good job closing the deal on your first big King salmon Lauren!
