Author: Jason Brooks
Posted: 9/6/2018
One of the most exciting moments for an angler is to see a float go under the surface and after a hard hookset the battle erupts with a huge fall Chinook.

“Fish Fish Fish!!!” That port rod had been getting hit the whole trip and it was once again bouncing. Pop, the line released from the clip and line went peeling off with the scream of the reel clicker. “Whose turn is it?” We’d had enough bites and fish that it was getting hard to know whose turn it was rotating through the four anglers. Rob Frawley of TofinoFishing.com had his fish detecting skil...

Some have names like Blue, Blankenship, Cougar, Cramer and Flatiron. Others don’t have a name at all. But for anglers who might be willing to hike a few miles, and who want to get away from the heat of the cities, fishing one of these high mountain lakes, many in the William O. Douglas Wilderness in central Cascades, should be in for some productive fishing. The Department of Fish and Wildlif...

Although they develop their own attitudes, perceptions and philosophies over time, most children reflect the views and priorities of their parents. For modern hunters and anglers, few things are as satisfying to see from their sons and daughters, as a blossoming love of wildlife and desire to protect it. But although your children will likely follow in your footsteps to some degree without extr...

Pulling onto the gravel bar next to a deep hole I noticed two guide boats already anchored up and taking the slot. The river was low and the fish were stacked up in the holes, or at least so we thought. Instead of trying to wrestle our way into the crowds I just dropped the oars and sat for a while, watching the anglers. It was like an assembly line of floats going down the river, everyone casting...

From the outside looking in, fishing may seem to be all about body counts and hard-pulling, big fish. But if you have spent a considerable number of years in the sport as I have, you may find that there is more to it that the casual observer may see. As a young man I lived within walking distance of the beach and when I was bored there was always a place to go fishing, whether you had someone t...

How did my phone know just the right music to play? Ah, the age we live in! To either side Northwest Fishing Report’s Rob Holman and I soaked in tree-covered hills and glimpses of snowy ...

Pulling up to the boat launch in the pre-dawn I noticed how warm the morning air was. It was going to be another hot July day in North-central Washington. Un-latching the tie down straps to the boat and making sure the plug was installed it was time to get out on the water before the sun came up. I had grown up here, near the small tourist town of Chelan, and the cool water from Lake Chelan ran do...
