We didn't do much fishing this year due to other projects early and the Copper got absolutely choked with sockeye and over the bank flooding this fall. We did a bit of hunting here this fall and trapping season is in full swing.Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.albums/q4/waterratpics/DSC00276.jpg[/IMG]

Everything was EARLY this year on the Lake,,,,the Copper was full of big trout spawning all May and then most were ragged and came back into the lake. No the river is overrun with small fish making it a nuisance to fish. If you sight fish you may still catch a larger fish but expect to catch 100's of midgets. Now I'm just gonna work all summer and wait for fall!
