PA’s Lehigh River Still Producing Big Trout


By: Chris Shaffer Lehigh River veteran fishing guide Paul Davidson looked at the sky and warned us. Citing a high sun, clear water and substantial heat he expected a slow bite.

Washington’s Wapato Lake Kicking Out Nice Trout


By: Anton Jones North central Washington offers wonderful fishing opportunities. My family has been able to run a successful guide service chasing Lake Chelan’s kokanee and lake trout for many years. That downrigging pays the bills. Meanwhile, to entertain grandkids and return to my roots as a bait fisherman I migrate to Mason, Washington, to [...]

PA’s Little Lehigh Creek Still Supporting Plenty of Trout


By: Chris Shaffer Trout fishing is quickly petering out in Eastern Pennsylvania. Meanwhile, not all streams have gone troutless yet. In fact, action on the Little Lehigh Creek last week couldn’t have been much better. Quality fishing should persist for another few weeks and while the PA Fish & Boat Commission has completed trout stocking [...]

Central PA’s Spring Creek Serving Up Quality Trout


By: Chris Shaffer Central Pennsylvania is littered with famous trout streams. Meanwhile, few gain as much attention as Spring and Penns Creek, both of which have been on our radar for a few years. Fortunately, while we were staying in State College last week both were fishable. The previous year they were so high and [...]

Clearwater/Snake Springers On Hot Bite


By: John Albrich Springer season has been open since April 23 here in the Lewis & Clark Valley. However, it wasn’t until a few days ago that we started seeing decent numbers of salmon arrive. The timetable is running a few weeks late. With that said the fish are here now and we saw phenomenal [...]

Central PA’s Canoe Creek Stuffed with Trout


By: Chris Shaffer When we drove by Central Pennsylvania’s Canoe Creek Monday recent storms had given the popular trout fishing stream a makeover since the opener. Gone was the clear, easy to read water. In is the tougher to read, dark, tea looking stream that forces anglers to use their instincts to find fish rather [...]

Pittsburgh’s Montour Creek Loaded with Trout


By: Chris Shaffer Heavy rain blew out Pittsburgh’s Montour Creek over the weekend. The creek ran high and muddy Sunday and Monday before returning to a somewhat normal flow yesterday.

Learn to Make Your Own Cured Kokanee Corn


By: Sam Baird Recently, I wrote a blog on how to super charge Fire Corn to help catch more kokanee. However, I know many of you are purists and only want to cure your own corn, rather than using a pre-cured product. At times, prefer home-cured corn to tackle finicky kokanee. Fortunately, Pautzke produces product [...]
