Puget Sound Coho Still Showing Well

By: Mike Ainsworth After two poor years the Puget Sound coho fishery has rebounded. We’ve seen an influx of numbers and larger than average coho this year and there’s still more than a month left in our fishery. We started to see coho in July and they’ve continued to trickle in ever since. I’m expecting [...]

By: Mike Ainsworth With fall upon us this weekend I have been busy prepping my eggs for fall salmon. This is one of my favorite times of year. As the days get shorter and the rain starts falling king and silver salmon begin to flood into Washington rivers. Here is a simple, yet effective way [...]

Alaska’s Ship Creek Loaded with Silvers

By: Dustin Slinker It’s been a bounce back year for silver salmon on Ship Creek. We are coming off the heels of last year where silver salmon were poor in South Central Alaska. Not only is the run size larger than previous years, but the fish are greater in size. It’s been impressive. I think [...]

Learn to Make a Fire Worm & Catch More Trout

By: Mike Wickkiser Dough bait catches trout. Just like many trout anglers across North America I’ve used dough bait for as long as I’ve been fishing. Many anglers simply cast the dough bait out, let it sit and wait for a bite. I don’t do that. Rather than rolling my bait in a ball I [...]

Meanwhile, that’s not the case at Black Rock Mountain State Park where 17-acre Black Rock Lake rests. The lake is stocked frequently in the spring, and [...]

Adjust to Challenging Conditions for Willamette Spring Chinook Success

By: Kyle Buschelman So far the spring Chinook season has been a challenge. Meanwhile, making adjustments to baits and how we present them have helped me put a few fish in the boat. Those putting in the work and time can catch springers. The Columbia River is closed. Therefore, most anglers will travel above Bonneville [...]

Berryessa Trout Fishing Set to Bust Loose

By: Troy Barr Berryessa is full right now. It’s been spilling for more than 50 days. This hasn’t happened in a decade. We are excited. You’re going to be able to fish places we haven’t fished in 10 years. There are old humps, canyons and canals where we haven’t had any water in ages. Now [...]

Salmon River Spring Steelhead Bite in Full Swing

By: Troy Creasy Overall our steelhead season was slow and tough in Upstate New York. Our numbers are down. Fortunately, for us on the Salmon River we have the hatchery and it’s keeping us fishing now. This is drop back season and there’s a lot of drop backs in the river now. It’s safe to [...]

Feather River Striper Bite Excelling in High Water

By: Scott Feist It’s no secret there’s a ton of water in the Sacramento Valley on the Feather and Sacramento River, but don’t let that discourage you. There are also more stripers than we’ve had in years and that high water is going to keep them around longer than we’re used to having them. The [...]
