2019-10-31T08:54:23-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer It's rare we hear that Pautzke salmon eggs don't work for trout. Meanwhile, minutes after signing a waiver and going over the boat inspection at Alaska's Quartz Lake the owner of Quartz Lake Boat Rentals told us to wait at the dock.

2019-10-31T08:54:03-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer Hat Creek, Upper Sacramento River, McCloud River, Pit River, Fall River and many other systems in the mountains above Redding get lots of publicity, and for a good reason.

2019-10-31T08:54:03-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer Hat Creek has been a favorite fishing and camping destination for decades. It’s the staple of Northern California stocked trout fishing for several reasons: it offers many miles of public access, heavy trout plants and the chance to catch trophy rainbows and brooks. That will hold true again this 4th of July. [...]

2019-10-31T08:53:54-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer Traveling to film fishing videos can be risky. Weather can cripple water conditions instantly. This was the case Tuesday when we arrived on the banks of Southwest Virginia’s Cripple Creek. Following several weeks of on and off heavy rain the creek wasn’t in good shape. It was high and almost muddy. Visibility [...]

South Platte River: Bait Section Update

2019-10-31T08:53:52-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer The weatherman isn’t normally correct. That’s why we opted to ignore reports of 60mph gusts and drove from Colorado Springs to the South Platte River upriver of Deckers to trout fish. Unfortunately, this time the forecast was correct. The weather was hideous when we stepped out of the car and attempted to [...]
