Alaska’s Deshka River Sporting Strong Salmon Bite on Cured Bait

By: Chris Shaffer When we booked our fishing trip with Alaska guide Andy Couch a few months ago he suggested we plan for a full day chasing Chinook on the Deshka River. The hope was to gain enough footage to film Pautzke Outdoors on this popular greater Anchorage area fishery without Couch having to give [...]

Learn to Make Super Saturated Roe

By Andy Couch In Alaska it’s no secret that salmon roe is a top bait, especially when fishing for early running king and coho salmon. There are times, however, when a roe-fishing angler may need to, “kick it up a notch,” in order to draw strikes in occluded waters or jazz heavily pressured salmon into one [...]

PA’s Lehigh River Still Producing Big Trout

By: Chris Shaffer Lehigh River veteran fishing guide Paul Davidson looked at the sky and warned us. Citing a high sun, clear water and substantial heat he expected a slow bite. In fact, he said we’d be fortunate to land a few fish. Despite the conditions we were in town to show Davidson (and many [...]

Washington’s Roosevelt Lake Kicking Out Monster Kokanee

By: Big Duane Inglin There’s many hot kokanee bites in Washington. However, no reservoir can rival the size and quality of kokes being caught in Lake Roosevelt. It’s become the go-to place in the Northwest for trophy kokanee. Normally, anglers target them in the winter, but spring and summer can be productive, too. And, it [...]

Learn To Make Halibut Bait Like A Pro

By: Gary Blasi When halibut fishing anywhere on the West Coast there’s nothing more important than establishing a strong scent trail. Generally, down 300 feet where we fish it’s dark and the fish can’t see too well, so you want three things: sound, scent and a little bit of sight. For many anglers if you [...]

Youghiogheny River Trout Showing In Summer Heat

By: Joey Usher For the most part trout fishing has grinded to a halt in Southwest Pennsylvania. On the other hand, the Youghiogheny River is still standing tall and will remain a quality trout fishery for the rest of the year. In fact, the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission is still stocking trout here and [...]

Washington’s Wapato Lake Kicking Out Nice Trout

By: Anton Jones North central Washington offers wonderful fishing opportunities. My family has been able to run a successful guide service chasing Lake Chelan’s kokanee and lake trout for many years. That downrigging pays the bills. Meanwhile, to entertain grandkids and return to my roots as a bait fisherman I migrate to Mason, Washington, to [...]

Tillamook Springer Bite Kicking into High Gear

By: Dave Manners Springer fishing in Tillamook Bay and our tidewaters was slow out of the gate this spring. There were fish being caught, but not in large numbers. We had good and bad days. However, the last few weeks action improved and become more consistent. In fact, it’s been improving daily and I’m expecting [...]

Icicle River Springers Returning to North Central Washington

By: Brad Wagner In North Central Washington the Icicle River’s springer fishing is a big deal. It marks the first of our salmon fisheries that opens. It’s one of our fisheries that have been consistent for a long time and it’s a cool fishery. It’s a small river where you can catch big salmon and [...]

Almost as far west as you can go, Big Snowbird Creek remains an overlooked year-round trout fishery [...]
