Just got back from the annual trip and this one will be hard to beat. The run was very big with about a million more fish in the river compared to the same time last year. The limit was raised to six July 28th and the limit was easy most days for an hour or two of fishing. The first week of August very large numbers of fish came in daily. I had a hard time getting my line in the water, while I was putting my wife's fish on her stringer she had already hooked another. Our coolers filled fast and after we caught all the fish our neighbors wanted we caught and released or fished for trout and dolly's the rest of our trip.

Did you spot any bears or see any sign/scat?

Great looking fish.

Thanks for the report.
No signs of bear this year, I heard they let the hunters take of a lot of big ones and as a result the moose are doing really well.
