Homer’s 30-minute Shrimp Recipe for Salmon

By: Homer Brown While many use eggs and plugs for springers I use shrimp partially because it’s different bait that most other anglers aren’t using. When everyone is throwing eggs, sardines or herring and then you throw a shrimp you’ll end up pounding them on shrimp because it’s something they aren’t seeing as often. On [...]

Central PA’s Spring Creek Serving Up Quality Trout

By: Chris Shaffer Central Pennsylvania is littered with famous trout streams. Meanwhile, few gain as much attention as Spring and Penns Creek, both of which have been on our radar for a few years. Fortunately, while we were staying in State College last week both were fishable. The previous year they were so high and [...]

Washington’s Cowlitz River In Heart of Springer Season

By: Bob Kratzer We’re having a good, fairly consistent springer season on the Cowlitz River. It’s not as good as last year, but I’m still averaging four to seven bites a day. May and early June traditionally marks the peak of our run. It’s going to be strong for the next few weeks. Decent fishing [...]

North Carolina’s “Tuck” Producing Lots of Trout

By: Chris Shaffer First timers are intimidated by the Tuckasegee River. Roughly and hour from Asheville and steps from Cullowhee, “The Tuck,” as locals refer to it, is one of the better known trout systems in Western North Carolina. Intimidation stems from its size. This isn’t a small stream, rather a medium size river that [...]

Clearwater/Snake Springers On Hot Bite

By: John Albrich Springer season has been open since April 23 here in the Lewis & Clark Valley. However, it wasn’t until a few days ago that we started seeing decent numbers of salmon arrive. The timetable is running a few weeks late. With that said the fish are here now and we saw phenomenal [...]

Vibrant Wild Browns Available in New Mexico High Country

By: Chris Shaffer Two weeks ago we planned a trip to film in Northern New Mexico. And, while the trip was only to last three days Mother Nature didn’t seem to want us to fish. Unfortunately, horrid weather greeted us. With winds in excess of 50mph, other than a two-hour stint at Monastery Lake and [...]

Anglers Working Harder For Upper Rogue Springers

By: Steven Theel As the season gets underway in Southern Oregon springer fever is invading the Upper Rogue River. However, this year anglers are facing conditions we haven't seen since 2012. Southern Oregon finally received a heap of much needed rain and snow this winter, which has pulled us out of the drought we've been [...]

Central PA’s Penns Creek Stuffed with Rainbows

By: Chris Shaffer We were scheduled to film in West Virginia last week. Meanwhile, with nasty weather and heavy rain predicted after filming on the Youghiogheny River in Southwest Pennsylvania last Monday we rerouted and drove several hours north to avoid the storm and salvage a week. Because of it’s central location to an endless [...]

Huge Weekend For Washington North Coast Halibut Anglers

By: Sean Orr We only get a few days a year to target halibut on Washington’s North Coast, and with this weekend’s favorable forecast anglers couldn’t be more excited. Since quotas only allow us a few days a year to fish everybody is chomping to go. In fact, last week it was a gnarly out [...]

Trout Fishing Close to Morgantown: Coopers Rock Lake

By: Chris Shaffer Northern West Virginia doesn’t boast the same grand trout fisheries the central and southern portion of the state do. Meanwhile, there are a few season fisheries that draw large crowds and enable anglers to trout fish close to home. They aren’t destinations, perhaps opportunities for anglers to catch a limit without having [...]
