By: Casey Kelley It’s been a busy week at Pautzke. In the last two days we’ve produced more than 175,000 jars of Green Label and Premium salmon eggs. This is on the heels of more than 300,000 jars of various Pautzke salmon eggs already produced in the last two months. We’re off to a great [...]

By: Eric Cagle It’s crappie time on the Alabama River and the bite is good. The Alabama River holds some of the biggest fish in the state by far. A two-pound crappie here is pretty normal. It’s not uncommon to catch a fish like that. The average fish is probably going to weigh a pound-and-a-quarter [...]
By: Chris Shaffer Tis the season when massive trout plants are taking place in Southwest Virginia. Near the top of that list is Crooked Creek, a place that is stocked several times a week by the Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries. The creek is in excellent shape this spring and pushing out easy [...]
By: Chris Shaffer Almost a month past opening day Eastern Pennsylvania streams are still full of trout. Fortunately, more trout plants are coming, too. We spent the last few days filming Pautzke Outdoors in many of the region’s streams in the greater Lehigh Valley and found that most of the systems we fished had high [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 & [...]
