Southwest Virginia Kicking Out Monster Trout

By: Chris Shaffer It seems every time we plan a trip to Southwest Virginia the weather doesn’t cooperate. This time would be no different. Following a week of stable, spring-like weather the night before we were to return to Rural Retreat to fish the temperature plummeted from 83 degrees to near freezing. And, our good [...]

Get the Scoop on Ice Fishing in Southern BC

By Rodney Hsu While ice fishing has been practiced in Canada for decades, it’s relatively unknown in British Columbia, particularly the southwest. In recent years, the popularity of this winter recreational fishery has grown due to the development of new fishing opportunities by the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC. More anglers are venturing on the [...]

Seward Highway Rainbows Showing Through the Ice

By: Chris Shaffer After frigid temperatures blanketed the greater Anchorage area and Kenai Peninsula a week ago more mild conditions have settled in. In fact, this week the region has seen bumps of heat greater than freezing. It’s been a welcomed site for many ice anglers. Given the favorable conditions we ventured out on the [...]

Northern Montana Trout Showing Through the Ice

By: Chris Shaffer While much of the country is struggling to keep safe ice, most of Montana isn’t having that problem. In fact, in the northern part of the state it’s been a fantastic ice-fishing year, which we couldn’t say last season. The last holes we drilled extended nearly two feet. Anglers have welcomed it.

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.

Youghiogheny River Trout Showing In Summer Heat

By: Joey Usher For the most part trout fishing has grinded to a halt in Southwest Pennsylvania. On the other hand, the Youghiogheny River is still standing tall and will remain a quality trout fishery for the rest of the year. In fact, the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission is still stocking trout here and [...]

Washington’s Wapato Lake Kicking Out Nice Trout

By: Anton Jones North central Washington offers wonderful fishing opportunities. My family has been able to run a successful guide service chasing Lake Chelan’s kokanee and lake trout for many years. That downrigging pays the bills. Meanwhile, to entertain grandkids and return to my roots as a bait fisherman I migrate to Mason, Washington, to [...]

North Carolina’s Big Snowbird Stocked Full of Trout Now

By: Chris Shaffer Trout stocking continues strong in North Carolina and with delayed harvest waters opening to bait this past weekend anglers have an endless amount of opportunities to catch trout in the western part of the state. Almost as far west as you can go, Big Snowbird Creek remains an overlooked year-round trout fishery [...]

PA’s Little Lehigh Creek Still Supporting Plenty of Trout

By: Chris Shaffer Trout fishing is quickly petering out in Eastern Pennsylvania. Meanwhile, not all streams have gone troutless yet. In fact, action on the Little Lehigh Creek last week couldn’t have been much better. Quality fishing should persist for another few weeks and while the PA Fish & Boat Commission has completed trout stocking [...]

North Carolina’s “Tuck” Producing Lots of Trout

By: Chris Shaffer First timers are intimidated by the Tuckasegee River. Roughly and hour from Asheville and steps from Cullowhee, “The Tuck,” as locals refer to it, is one of the better known trout systems in Western North Carolina. Intimidation stems from its size. This isn’t a small stream, rather a medium size river that [...]
