Get Awesome UV Eggs Now For Winter Steelhead Fishing

By: James Swearingen Salmon fever is high in the Great Lakes. Many of us are drifting skein or sacks under a float and catching lots of king salmon. Meanwhile, this time of year when we catch Great Lakes salmon most of the skeins are still tight and immature. Because of this many of the salmon [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Pecos River Loaded with Rainbows

By: Chris Shaffer Late summer and fall spells opportunity for trout anglers in New Mexico. Water levels have fallen to attractive levels, crowds are slightly lighter as many anglers are hunting and trout are more aggressive as cooler water temperatures have prevailed. In all, it’s an excellent time to trout fish, particularly on the Pecos [...]

Trout Bite Improving On Tennessee’s Caney Fork

By: Chris Shaffer High flows and large releases have kept the trout bite from taking off this summer on Tennessee’s Caney Fork, one of the most popular fisheries in the Southeast. Fortunately, recent cooler weather is aiding the bite. Fishing is improving and should continue to gradually get better through September and October as there’s [...]

New Mexico/Colorado Trout Hammering Pautzke’s New Fire Balls

By: Chris Shaffer New Mexico trout anglers likely use more Pautzke salmon eggs than any other state. It’s one of the few places where we could drop a pallet of Green, Tyee, Premium or Gold Label salmon eggs on the floor of a retailer and be confident they would all sell in a few months. [...]

Alaska Trout Grabbing New Fire Balls

By: Chris Shaffer Driving along the Richardson Highway on our way to salmon fish in Valdez Pautzke pro staffer Mike Wickkiser and I noticed a small waterfall on the left side of the road roughly 200 yards down an embankment. It was classic Alaska scenery upstream of a high mountain lake, looked trouty and we [...]

Chama River Fishing Well For Trout

By: Chris Shaffer Most rivers and streams in Northern New Mexico have finally receded to favorable levels and anglers are catching limits of trout following heavy stockings by New Mexico Game & Fish. This pattern should continue through early October as water levels continue to fall. Action at the Chama River remains impressive even amongst [...]

New Mexico’s Hopewell Lake Loaded with Trout

By: Chris Shaffer It’s been an interesting spring and summer at Northern New Mexico’s Hopewell Lake. The small, high mountain lake took longer than normal to shed its winter layer of ice. Anglers used to fishing the lake in late spring had to wait. Spring wildfires closed access to the area while firefighters dipped water [...]

Central Pennsylvania Still Has Trout

By: James Swearingen While fishing pressure has fallen off there’s still plenty of trout to be found in Central Pennsylvania. The good news is there’s fewer anglers out there targeting them. There were deer tracks on the shoreline last week, not boot prints, meaning you’ll be able to get your favorite hole to yourself, which [...]
