Slow — But Pleasant — Day At The French River

Ben Anderson (foreground) of Cloquet fishes for Kamloops rainbow trout near the mouth of the French River on Friday afternoon as other anglers fish near the mouth of the river. It was a pleasant day for fishing, and anglers could see the rainbows in the water, but nobody was getting bites. (Sam Cook photo)
