Columbia River Still Kicking Out Lots of Salmon

By: Connor Taplin Salmon fishing on the Columbia River continues to be great in the Portland area. However, the bite will likely slow in the next few weeks. Fortunately, anglers will be able to migrate upriver to follow the fish and remain in consistent action through the end of the month. We are seeing about [...]

Wisconsin Salmon Bite Peaking Now

By: Kyle Deavers Harbor and river salmon fishing started much earlier than we are used to in Wisconsin this year. The first two weeks of September provided exceptional salmon fishing as unseasonable cold weather drew salmon out of Lake Michigan. However, the warm temperatures that have been with us for the last week has slowed [...]

Lake Ontario Salmon Still Showing in Big Numbers

By: Andy Bliss This year will go down as one of the greatest years for salmon fishing on Lake Ontario and it doesn’t seem to want to slow down. We’ve had great numbers, large fish and action on multiple year classes all season. It’s also going down as the season that will never end. We [...]

Learn to Cure Eggs for Great Lakes Salmon

By: Kyle McClelland Good bait is everything when targeting Great Lakes salmon. If you don’t have good bait the skein is going to fall apart after every cast and loses color fast.

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.

Anglers Working Hard for Lower Red River Trout

By: Chris Shaffer Reading local fish reports you would think anglers were catching trout every cast on Northern New Mexico’s Lower Red River. New Mexico Game & Fish’s weekly report stated action was very good. We reacted by flying to Albuquerque and driving north to the Lower Red to cash in on the action, but [...]

GTA Salmon Bite to Take Off with Cooler Weather

By: Bojan Zivkovic The Great Lakes have seen an increase in Chinook and coho populations this summer, and following stellar summer fishing on Lake Ontario we’re expecting a promising salmon run in our GTA rivers this fall. The cool rain and mild temperatures we saw a few weeks ago drew salmon into tributaries on the [...]

Learn the Nectar Infused Spray Bottle Scent Every Salmon/Steelhead Angler Should Have

By: Bob Kratzer Fall is here and so are summer steelhead and salmon. One thing both have in common is their love for eggs. We all know I cure my eggs in Fire Cure, but adding more scent to eggs is always important. Salmon anglers have successfully added Pautzke Red Nectar to eggs, wraps and [...]

Learn the Most Effective Wisconsin Salmon Egg Cure

By: Kyle Deavers Our river salmon season in Wisconsin has started earlier than we are used to this year. We already have salmon in harbors and rivers from Kenosha to Northern Wisconsin.
