Tyler Coughlan with large female salmon July 16th 2014

Again this week, we have a mixed bag as far as reports go.  One angler or angling area of 10 might just have hit a small wave of fish going through and felt angling was quite good.  On the other hand, the other nine reported almost nothing.  There still has been no great run, but…
