Some new products are truly unique, for example, Wiggle Fins. These products create and define new methods and fishing techniques. Other products take a great idea, refine it and make it better.

Summer Trolling for King Salmon on Lake Oroville
Author: Denis Peirce
Posted: 6/10/2017
The land locked king salmon fishery in Lake Oroville has been a tough one to figure out. They are a cold water fish that stays down deep for most of the season. Shore based anglers rarely can reach them and boat fishermen have a tough time finding the correct combination of depth, speed and lure. The story of the cold water fishery in Lake Oroville goes back to the completion of the dam in the ...

May brings on one of my favorite fisheries, but it is not one where you use a hook, line, and rod to reel in the catch.

I listened to the trolling motor as it went into it’s programmed acceleration. Like clockwork the outside downrigger rod began to do a familiar “tap tap tap” as it signaled another kokanee on the other end.

The fishing at Lake Chelan for kokanee is red hot! If you’re interested in getting some shiny 11-15” silver bullets now is the time to go.

There’s something about trout fishing that always gets me excited. Maybe it’s the fact it’s a sign of Spring and after this past long and wet winter I am ready for some sunshine.
