PA’s Little Pine Creek Stuffed with Trout

By: Chris Shaffer When we filmed Pautzke Outdoors Saturday morning at Little Pine Creek it was the first time we’d ever been there. In fact, we knew nothing about it. If it weren’t for the GPS coordinates on the PA Fish & Boat App we would have never known where to go or what areas [...]

Pennsylvania’s Laurel Run Stocked with Brook Trout

By: Chris Shaffer It’s rare that we get the opportunity to use underwater cameras to film catching trout in public waters. Normally, crowds don’t allow it. Other times, the fish get spooked instantly and won’t bite when we put a camera in the water. Or the water can be murky. Fortunately, a few days ago [...]

PA’s Whipple Dam Kicking Out Nice Brookies

By: Chris Shaffer Whipple Dam is one of the most popular brook trout fisheries in Central Pennsylvania and if you want to catch trout here this season you better get here soon. The small lake was stocked with brook trout (and very few browns) Friday and the fish are being caught quickly. We filmed Pautzke [...]

Colorado’s Elevenmile Canyon Sporting Good Trout Bite

By: Chris Shaffer It didn’t matter who we asked, every one told us fishing the all-tackle section of Elevenmile Canyon wasn’t good this time of year. That included the attendant at the gas station where tackle was sold, the general store with a large tackle section, the fly shop, the local marina, the ranger station [...]

Drano Lake Springers Starting to Show

By: Toby Wyatt Following a slow March and early April many anglers were worried that this was going to be another disappointing springer run. However, we’re realizing that the fish are likely just a few weeks behind schedule. After a slow start to the run in the Lower Columbia River springers have finally started their [...]

PA’s Standing Stone Creek: Loaded with Trout

By: James Swearingen Central PA’s Standing Stone Creek was packed on opening day. There was a ton of trout caught. However, crowds have thinned and there’s a decent number of trout still available. Fortunately, those numbers will skyrocket this Tuesday as the last in season stocking of the year takes places. The PA Fish & [...]

Trout Fishing Update: Virginia’s Cripple Creek

By: Chris Shaffer Traveling to film fishing videos can be risky. Weather can cripple water conditions instantly. This was the case Tuesday when we arrived on the banks of Southwest Virginia’s Cripple Creek. Following several weeks of on and off heavy rain the creek wasn’t in good shape. It was high and almost muddy. Visibility [...]

Virginia’s Big Tumbling Running High But Fishable

By: Chris Shaffer Rain fell everyday this week in Southwest Virginia. All the creeks we fished were running high and off-colored. Some were unfishable. Fortunately, while much higher than normal Big Tumbling Creek is still fishable and loaded with trout as plants continue to arrive four days a week. We filmed two episodes of Pautzke [...]

Durham’s Falls Lake Producing Lots of Catfish

By: Chris Shaffer Not too long ago we headed to Kerr Lake to film Pautzke Outdoors with Wes Jordan of Redbeard Cats. The forecast was for no chance of rain. Naturally we left the raingear at the hotel. Sure enough, an hour into fishing it started pouring. The radar showed a heavy band of rain [...]
