North Coast Fishing Report – It’s that time of year again when drivers need to exercise additional caution heading for coastal fishing areas. Highway 6 at the summit has been subject to freezing temperatures at times this week and has been slippery. Take it slow to arrive and return safely. Boaters still plying the waters…
