Sacramento River Experiencing Very Good Fishing

2019-10-31T08:54:13-07:00

By: Jeff Goodwin We are knocking on October’s door, which means the upper sections of the Sacramento River will see impressive numbers of king salmon. Currently sport anglers and salmon guides are seeing lights-out style fishing near the Barge Hole and are catching limits daily. I believe this is the best salmon fishing we’ve seen [...]

Raw Chicken + Catfish Nectar = Tennessee River Success

2019-10-31T08:54:11-07:00

By: Dustin Slinker I’ve spent decades fishing all over North America and grew up catfishing in the Midwest, but I learned something new while targeting catfish in East Tennessee. I learned that fresh, raw, thick-cut, boneless, skinless chicken breast catches catfish, and it may work better than liver, stink baits and other cut baits that [...]

Klamath River Salmon Update

2019-10-31T08:54:11-07:00

By: Mick Thomas The Klamath River is absolutely loaded with salmon right now. Unfortunately, we met the quota for adult Chinook September 12 and the Lower Klamath River is now open to possession of only jack salmon and hatchery steelhead. Meanwhile, it’s been a phenomenal run. It’s off the charts and there’s way more salmon [...]

Michigan Salmon Run Kicking into High Gear

2019-10-31T08:54:11-07:00

By: Kyle McClelland This fall’s salmon run has been one of the largest I’ve seen in my lifetime. We’ve had good numbers and large salmon. On my boat we’ve caught three Chinook over 30 pounds this year and our run isn’t over yet. I anticipate the run continuing through the second week of October and [...]

Learn The Best Way To Wrap a Plug

2019-10-31T08:54:11-07:00

By: Mike Bogue There are two ways many of us fish for salmon in rivers: we run plugs and fish roe. I run bait, but I’m a big plug fisherman. I wish I knew for sure why salmon hit plugs, but I think a plug is something shiny in their face that irritates them and [...]

Guide Talks Borax Egg Cures For Fall Salmon

2019-10-31T08:54:11-07:00

By: Alan Borges On many of the big river systems along the West Coast the water tends to be warmer than salmon prefer in late summer and early fall. Many of these systems harbor water warmer than 65 degrees, which is warm for salmon. This warmer water also affects cured roe and forces me to [...]

Puget Sound Coho Providing Anglers Opportunity

2019-10-31T08:54:11-07:00

By: Mike Ainsworth Chinook retention has expired for the year in Puget Sound. Fortunately, there’s still plenty of coho around for anglers to target. I’m expecting this fishery to persist through September and am basing this around the number of coho still holding in the straits. Due to the lack of rain we’ve had reports [...]

Central Pennsylvania Trout Still Showing Strong

2019-10-31T08:54:11-07:00

By: Isaac Zettle It rained nonstop in July and August in Central Pennsylvania. Our water levels were so high that most of our creeks flooded. Some rose into major flood stage. We had more than two weeks of nonstop rain. Then it took about two weeks for the water to come back down to fishable [...]

How to Make Perfect Bait For Coastal Oregon Salmon

2019-10-31T08:54:11-07:00

By: Kyle Buschelman The Buoy 10 madness has passed. Many of us Oregon guides now migrate back to our home coastal estuaries to intercept Chinook and coho. This is my favorite time of year. Meanwhile, due to the Internet and social media competition is real in all of our fisheries. I need to an ace in [...]
