Vancouver Island Fishing
Editor’s Note – If you’re interested in fishing Canada but not having to travel a great distance to do so, the west coast of Vancouver Island can offer some of the most amazing scenery and fishing found in the Pacific Northwest. Reel Obsession Sportfishing sent us this summary of their 2015 season. They call the areas of Esperanza and Nootka “The Salmon Highway” and judging from the information on their web site that’s a good name. Of course, more than salmon is available. Read on for all Reel ...

October Coho Tactics
Two days before Halloween I backed my drift boat trailer down to the edge of the river and slid the Willies off into the rising waters. Since leaving my house the rain came pouring down for the two hour drive to the coast. As I put the oars in the locks I noticed the river was quite a bit higher than when we floated it in early October. In fact back in the first week of October the river was flowing at 600 cfs, a bit too low causing us to get out and push the boat across a few gravel bars. Now ...

The Importance of Fishing Guides
Although fishing season is in full swing, there’s a great alternative of how to effectively put more fish in your boat. Have you ever wondered how to fish for a certain species of fish, but feel absolutely overwhelmed of what, where and how to fish for them? One of the best ways to get started is by contacting a local fishing guide, getting on their boat and asking them as many questions as you want. At a local area near you, there is always a myriad of fishing guides who will show you the r...

Think Like a Fish
Football coach Mike has fished Oregon’s rivers about 70 years. When I’m casting with him I’m mostly silent so I can glean as much river knowledge as possible before he goes where there is no closed season and no limit. A few years ago, I saw him at a bend in the river. “12 pounder hanging in the old snag,” he snarled, describing his just-caught steelhead.“Do you mean the one with the eagle’s nest?” I joked. He almost smiled which in itself would have been a pivotal point in the history of ...

They're landlocked Sockeye
My idea is that technique and terminal tackle that work for catching Sockeye should work for catching Kokanee. I set out to test that theory. When I first fished lakes Washington and Wenatchee for Sockeye, ages ago it seems, the terminal tackle favorite was big flashers or dodgers, short metal leaders and big flatfish. I favored the silver U-20 with pink dots. The next big improvement was red and then blue bare hooks behind the flasher/dodger. Three years ago I was privileged to fis...

Westside Fall Alpine Lakes
Winter is coming. When the cold air filters into the high lake areas of Washington State, suddenly if you aren’t ice fishing you aren’t fishing at all.

GH Unders Product Review
I got to learn a little bit about first layer under wear recently at Ed Iman’s Fish Camp, courtesy of Grays Harbor Unders Company GHUnders. This local business has been around since 2005, and started making products primarily for motorcycle riders. Ben and Mario Winkelman did a presentation for us at Fish Camp, which was quite informative. Mario was a cross country motorcycle enthusiast, and his travels led him to develop the first seamless seating area for ...

Caddis Fly: Don’t Leave Home Without it
I was asked the other day which fly I would never leave home without. I quickly answered, “a caddis of course”. I think that would be the answer that most fly fishers would give. The caddis fly is thought of around the world as the fly fisher’s best friend.More than 1,200 caddis species inhabit the rivers and lakes of North America. Caddis hatches are often the first to appear in April and occur right through October. Now don’t ask me to identify all 1,200.It’s really not necessary. Good t...

Boat Trailer Maintenance
The truck pulled up next to us as we headed north on I-5, returning from a nice weekend at Merwin reservoir. “You’ve got a flat!” the passenger called out. Fortunately for us we were only a half mile from a Chehalis exit. JoAnn pulled us off the road and into an AM/PM gas station. Our rear left trailer tire was indeed flat as a pancake. I proceeded to jack up the trailer and pulled my spare out of the truck bed. A half hour later (and about a pound of sweat in the ninety degree weather) we ...
