Rollover Pass Report, April 6 thru April 12, 2015

By Ed Snyder/Outdoors
What a difference a day makes- last week fair to middlin catches- and this week all heck broke loose. One Day Zero’s and one day Hero’s is what I say. This past week’s fishing action is nothing short of being downright awesome, especially for trout and reds, with many 24 to 27 inch trout and reds being caught and released, or boxed for supper. Flounder, drum, and whiting were represented as well. BUT THEN THE RAINS CAME with most anglers racing for cover. BUT THEN THERE WERE TWO!! (Special Note: Check Miss Nancy’s Bait Camp on Face Book for daily fish photos update)
