Sitting at the dinner table one Friday night my cell phone began ringing and the caller I.D. showed it was a fishing buddy of mine. I grabbed the phone and excused myself while my wife looked at me with a polite stare (in case she reads this article you know what I mean by “polite stare”) and I reassured her it would be a short conversation. As I answered the phone I wondered what he wanted. Our ...

Lake Washington Perch Fishing Secrets During the winter months I tend to fish mostly for perch. I like how simple and relaxing it is. Plus it is great fishing to take kids and new fishermen too – plenty of action to keep them entertained, and lets them learn the basics of working a rod and reel, setting the hook, and other basic fishing skills. This article, however, will focus on fishing ...

Felt Soled Waders

Posted: 2/25/2017
Felt-Soled wading boots are a terrific invention. The fabric can make a slippery log or rocky bottom feel easy to navigate, and can even make a long day of standing feel a bit easier. But as great as these boots are, their fabric-coated soles are a known cause of transmitting certain invasive species and diseases into different streams, severely impacting the creeks and the fish in them. Felt...

Secrets Hurt Our Fisheries
Secrets Hurt Our Fisheries
Author: Greg Larson
Posted: 2/3/2017
We can agree that our fish are in trouble. Every year we witness another set of disappointments. If it’s not another early closure, or reduced catch, or some other concession, we are losing the battle to improve our fisheries. I dare say, we are losing our fisheries altogether. As we spoke to hundreds of citizens at the recent Sportsmen show in Puyallup, one thing became very clear. A good m...

Bank Bound Success
Author: Jason Brooks
Posted: 2/2/2017
Bank bound anglers have to watch boats go by, and as one of those formally stuck on the bank, I often thought about how I need to get a boat to become more “successful” on the water. For years I stood on the banks, hiked along the trails and stood on boulders just knowing that I could catch more fish if I just had a boat. Finally, after getting a drift boat and learning how to navigate rivers I wa...

Clearwater Winter Steelhead
Author: Mike Carey
Posted: 1/31/2017
Winter steelheading runs in the DNA of anglers in the Pacific Northwest. Anglers know that later winter steelheading affords the opportunity to catch truly trophy sized steelhead. Nowhere is this truer than on the Clearwater River in Idaho. The Clearwater River runs 75 miles long in north central Idaho. It flows westward from the Bitterroot Mountains and joins the Snake River. The Snake River i...

January Kokanee
Author: Jason Brooks
Posted: 12/30/2016
Kokanee are a hard fighting, finicky, and tasty landlocked salmon highly sought after by anglers. Throw in the mix of a lake that is fifty-five miles long, up to 1,400 feet deep and dead of winter in January and most anglers agree kokanee would be great but head for other lakes and other fish waiting until the kokanee can be patterned easier. “Most anglers” doesn’t include Jeff Witkowski, guide fo...
