FISHING REPORT
MAY 29, 2014

ALERT:     SALMON AND OTHER TYPES OF FISH ARE BEING CAUGHT
UPDATED: April 23, 2014   WEBMASTERS NOTE:
Many of the game fish function in a chronological order.
I have posted the fishing news available to me from last year in a chronological order.

In other words, the trees change color in Autumn.
The flowers begin to bloom in early spring.

Thus it is ordained by higher powers that these fish will pursue their natural migratory routes.
Bear in mind that there is good fishing to be had away from these dates of last year.
Remember, There is a lot of good fishing that goes unreported !
Enjoy your stay at the Bel Aire Motel
At the Bel Aire, you will notice a personal attention to details.

I hope it will make your time here a pleasant memory.
