The Simplest Steelhead Cure: Great Lakes Style

By: Bojan Zivkovic “Bojangles. How do you get your roe to look so good?” That is a question I get quite often from my friends and anglers on the water, especially after one has seen my freshly cured batch of eggs whether it is trout or salmon eggs. Vibrant, soft, tacky, and plump is a [...]

Fall Like Weather Greeting Wisconsin Steelhead & Brown Trout Anglers

By: Kyle Deavers The last two years we were ice fishing our harbors and the lower part of the rivers during Christmas season along the Wisconsin shoreline. This winter, however, we’ve been fishing in warmer weather than we are used to. There’s no ice around and we aren’t expecting ice to form anytime in the [...]

Expect Fluctuating Water & Use Small Baits: For Hanford Reach Steelhead

By: TJ Hester A Reach is defined as a continuous extent of land or water, particularly a stretch of river between two bends.

Meanwhile, [...]

Learn To Plunk – From A Drift Boat

By Andy Martin As the Pacific Northwest gets pounded by back-to-back-to-back storms, and nearly every river from Southern Oregon to the Olympic Peninsula is blown out, anglers are anxious to get back on the water and begin fishing for winter steelhead. Even when the rains finally stop, many rivers will still be too high for [...]

Learn To To Throw The Kitchen Sink At Salmon

By: Big Dave Manners It’s salmon season and while most guys are using just eggs or just a plug, I’m throwing the kitchen sink at them. I’m strong believer that fall salmon are big on big baits and I want to give them something that’s packed with their favorite things. Every salmon angler knows tuna [...]

Southern Ontario Steelhead Preview

By: Bojangles A lack of precipitation in Ontario the past two months has made for an interesting start to steelhead season. Periods of stellar fishing have welcomed us between windows of good water conditions following sporadic rain. However, low water has action slower than last fall. Mild daytime highs have also kept the rivers warm [...]

Tillamook Tidewater Still Boasting Salmon Action

By: Big Dave Manners The entire month of October tidewater salmon fishing in the Tillamook area was awesome because we didn’t have early rain this year. Therefore, the salmon stayed in the bay and tidewater rather than heading upriver to spawn. Had it rained, an increase in river levels would have drawn the salmon out [...]

Learn To Cure Extra Sweet Salmon Eggs For Bobber & Back Bouncing

By: Andy Martin Floating a gob of roe below a bobber, or back-bouncing a tiny cluster of salmon eggs into a deep pool, are two of the most effective techniques for catching fall king salmon on the coastal rivers of Oregon, Washington and California. The key to successful bait fishing for kings is having good [...]

Oregon’s Upper Rogue Summer Steelhead Bait Opener

By: Steven Theel For most Southern Oregon anglers November is a favorite time to chase fall kings on the Oregon Coast. However, I like to stay close to home in the Rogue Valley and target steelhead. For the last two months summer steelhead have seen nothing but flies on the Upper Rogue River near the [...]
