It’s Big King Time On Oregon’s Chetco River

By Andy Martin The bite was like any other when a salmon strikes an anchovy or herring while trolling in a coastal bay. Tap, Tap. Slight pause. Rod buckles over. But seconds into the fight, the guy sitting in the front of my jet boat knew the salmon at the end of his line wasn't [...]

It’s Game Time For Southern Ontario Salmon

By: Bojan Zivkovic Having seen quite a few floats drop thus far I can officially say salmon season has begun in harbors, rivers and creeks of Southwestern Ontario. We have seen a significant drop in temperatures and finally got a bit of rain, which brought in a wave of staging salmon that have been hovering [...]

Washington’s Snohomish Coho: Limited Season Opens Today

By: Todd Daniels For the last year we’ve been hearing about expected historical low returns of coho in Puget Sound. However, the forecast was wrong and we’re seeing fishable numbers of these feisty silvers in many of our Puget Sound rivers.

By: Kyle McClelland Having good bait is everything when salmon fishing Great Lakes tributaries. To be successful you have to prepare the eggs right every time and have a variety.

Southeast Wisconsin Harbors Finally Showing Good Numbers of Salmon

By: Kyle Deavers Yesterday we got more than two inches of rain in Southeast Wisconsin and it did a few things. The influx of water triggered many of the salmon that were in our harbors to migrate upriver. It also drew fresh fish into our rivers and harbors and we’re hoping there’s more to follow. [...]

Kentucky Cumberland River Trout Eating Up Salmon Eggs

By: Johnny Rush Trout fishing has been slower than normal on the Cumberland River late this summer. However, trout fishing should get better now that it’s going to start cooling down in Kentucky. We’ve had to work harder than we are used to, but the trout we are catching are larger than normal. The Kentucky [...]

Central PA Trout Showing with the Cooler Weather

By: Joey Usher Trout fishing in the summertime in Pennsylvania is limited. There are not a lot of places that hold trout year round. I can only think of a few in the region where a trout angler can experience a quality trout fishery this time of year. To experience this I hopped in the [...]

Wisconsin Salmon Staging on the Lakefront

By: Kyle Deavers The skein bite has been hit or miss the past few weeks in Southeast Wisconsin. Some days we’re getting a few fish to bite in the harbors and rivers on skein. Meanwhile, warmer than normal river and harbor temperatures are keeping most of the salmon pinned to the lakefront. With the current [...]

Learn to Make Spawn Sacks For Northwest Salmon

By: Steven Theel Fall salmon season is kicking off in the Northwest. On the Rogue River in Southern Oregon we're in the middle of our salmon run. On the middle section we have a bad population of Umpqua pikeminnow's that steal bait before it hits the bottom. To combat the problem, and be able to [...]
