New Mexico’s Red River Loaded with Big Rainbows

By: Chris Shaffer In New Mexico catching five-fish limits of trout that weigh more than 12 pounds isn’t common. In fact, it’s rare.

It often gets large allotments [...]

Eastern PA’s Brodhead Creek To Fish Well This Weekend

By: Chris Shaffer Those who trout fish Pennsylvania often know many streams can be fished out a day or two after being stocked. Fortunately, that’s not the case with Brodhead Creek.
