Pink Salmon fever is an ailment that occurs every other year and sometimes the disease hits harder for some than for others. Usually those that get the “fever” the most are those that just like to catch fish and a lot of them regardless of size or stature.

Perhaps you’ve heard the news that WDFW have planted triploid kokanee in Lake Roosevelt. Anglers that have are probably dreaming of monster triploid kokanee, similar to what they have seen for the triploid rainbow trout program. The fact vs. fiction however is much more interesting.

The Golden Bonefish Carp – long considered an invasive trash fish and the subject of mockery – st...

They may not be the best lure for the dead of winter or while ...
