Re: Scooteney reservoir crawfish

Guess Tackledog took great offense to my reply above, sent me and Mike a PM threatening to "out" NWFR and me on "social media" telling them not to come here. Good luck, I don't do social media and couldn't care less. :-({|= Rather incredulous Tackledog seems to think I called him/her out, which I di...

Re: Tune up and oil change

Not knowing what age or brand of your engines, my advice is to locate a premium or premier certified dealer. That usually means they have a master certified tech in the service department. All the big name manufacturers have a dealer locator function on their websites and a method of locating those ...

Re: Use trolling flies for rainbow?

Don’t think of leaded line as fishing super deep. It’s just a matter of how many colors you are running behind the boat. You can keep it fairly shallow. Leaded line will be a more natural presentation. If you are using a mono mainline, and sinkers as you said, and then running line/leader down to f...

Re: WDFW closes sportfishing statewide

The state doesn't have the resources to police every body of water in the state so it will happen. I hope those who flaunt the law get the same punishment any poacher would because they are poaching since fishing is closed. Although I strongly disagree with the broad brush closure action, and see no...

Some people are ignoring the closure, talked to a buddy yesterday and at least two bank anglers at Roosevelt, one near Seven Bays, got personal attention from enforcement. [rolleyes]

Re: 2nd day Banks lake chain winter trout bank fishing

Were it not for the pumping station there would be no connection to Banks, in fact, Banks would not exist. I think it quite a stretch to call it the "Banks chain" when the source water is pumped UPHILL from Roosevelt. No dispute on the irrigation project but your claim of it being the "Banks chain" ...
