Re: eagle takes my fish

Up here on the Nooksack, it is incredible to see 20-30 of them in the trees right over your head. They sure love those old spawned out chum!

Re: Looking to buy my first boat! Help a newbie out!!

Juniah, Isn't that lake closed until April? I also have a 12' Livingston with a 5.5 Seahorse and a trolling motor. Its a dual hull fiberglass boat I got from my grandpa. I really only take it out when I have a buddy or two to take fishing, because I enjoy the simplicity of a fishing kayak. But the b...

Re: Ask an ex-WDFW employee anything!

I worked for WDFW at half a dozen different hatcheries for 5 years raising chinook, coho, pink salmon, chum, steelhead, brown trout, rainbow trout, and tiger trout in the Pierce County area, followed by a year in the private sector raising rainbows in net pens on the Columbia River. How did you lik...

Depression Lake

I am thinking about an overnighter at Depression lake with a friend this weekend. This is the small stocked bow lake connecting to Baker Lake. However, it doesnt look like the lake has been stocked yet this year. Has anyone fished this lake prior to an annual stocking? Would you guys think it's wort...

Re: Kayak for sale?

I just found one on craigslist the other day, and bought if from the guy yesterday. It is a Lifetime Payette Sit-Inside fishing kayak with two rod holders behind the seat, and one in front. I took it out right when I got it, but it was a nasty windy day so I didnt get much of a chance to fish. I do ...

Re: What do bass eat?

I don't know how you guys aren't ranting about senkos. Nothing has even come close to catching more fish for me than those. Wacky rigged they don't imitate any natural prey of the bass, however they still go crazy for them. If you ever have trouble, just go grab some Gary Yamamoto Senkos in green pu...

Re: Fly rod and reel suggestions

Alright! Thank you guys for the info. I might end up looking at Cabelas sometime soon, or just getting some nicer line for my current reels. TFO looks like they make some nice rods as well. I am guessing that both of the rods I have are at least 30 years old and heavily used, so a new rod might be s...

Fly rod and reel suggestions

Hello everyone, So I have recently found a passion for fly fishing. Last year I chased a few trout with an old rod and reel from my girlfriend's dad, who gave me a couple of 1980's rods and several old Orvis reels. I really enjoyed learning how to cast, and I am really itching for spring to come to ...

Re: WDFW - Projections indicate low coho runs

I agree with Larry 100%. onmygame I certainly agree with Larry in some aspects, and I do not support accusing them of being bad people. If I had the chance to net fish to support my family I have no doubt that I would be doing it. But that doesn't mean that I should be allowed to. I do think they a...

Re: WDFW - Projections indicate low coho runs

While I agree with a few of your points, your blatant racism is inappropriate and doesnt help things at all. Its attitudes like yours that are the reason the tribes want the meetings closed. Spreading hate and racism accomplishes nothing good. I am more getting the sense that he is against their wa...

Re: Bass Fishing the Columbia

Hey Tanner, I am taking a trip down there with one of my buddies over memorial day weekend (25th-29th). We are going for smallies on the Columbia and then up to Moses lake as well, and wherever we hear about in between! Hit me up if you are looking to get on a bass boat around that time down there B...
