Learn Big Dave’s 80/20 Recipe: For Blue Herring

By: Dave Manners Springer fishing has improved drastically on the Oregon Coast since our last blog a few weeks ago. The water has warmed up and the fish are biting better. The good news is there’s fish around and fish are being caught daily. The guys that are fishing daily are generally picking up some [...]

Use Brined Shrimp For Drano/Wind River Springers

By: Toby Wyatt Although upriver stocks of spring salmon (those headed to Eastern Washington and Idaho) are struggling, Drano and the Wind River still have good runs of springers. Because of these two fisheries a lot of us fishing guides were able to salvage a season. These are two places that are thriving now and [...]

Pecos River Loaded with Trout for the Holiday Weekend

By: Chris Shaffer The Pecos River is one of the most heavily fished rivers in Northern New Mexico. Located a short distance from Santa Fe and Albuquerque anyone who trout fishes comes here. Fortunately, the stocking truck arrives frequently. If the New Mexico Game & Fish didn’t stock it as aggressively as they do it’s [...]

Recent Uptick in Cowlitz Springers

By: Bob Kratzer Springer fishing on the Cowlitz River has been decent. It hasn’t been horrible and hasn’t been great. There’s fish here and we’ve had an uptick in recent days, but we are dealing with high and cold water and that’s made catching them more challenging. It’s been a long time since conditions were [...]

Lower Rogue Anglers Grinding Out Springers

By: Troy Whitaker The good news is people are catching springers on the Lower Rogue. However, it’s been a fair run. I’d call it average. It hasn’t been the worst I’ve ever seen and there haven’t been fish swimming everywhere either. Most of the people I’ve talked to are catching fish, but it’s been a [...]

Time to Catch NW Oregon Springers Now

By: Dave Manners We’ve completed the first quarter of the springer season. So far, there have been some days where fish have been caught and super slow days. That’s normal for springer fishing for us. We should see more fish come in May and June from the central to north Oregon Coast. The first quarter [...]

Big D’s Secret Halibut Bait: Brined Rainbow Trout

By: Duane Inglin In Washington the halibut season is short lived and when you have limited opportunities to target them having good bait is a must. There are several rigging presentations and baits that have been standbys for decades. When it comes to bait, you have several options, namely octopus, squid, horse herring, salmon and [...]

Adjust to Challenging Conditions for Willamette Spring Chinook Success

By: Kyle Buschelman So far the spring Chinook season has been a challenge. Meanwhile, making adjustments to baits and how we present them have helped me put a few fish in the boat. Those putting in the work and time can catch springers. The Columbia River is closed. Therefore, most anglers will travel above Bonneville [...]

New Mexico’s Eagle Rock Lake Loaded with Trout

By: Chris Shaffer It’s hard to find a prettier place to fish in Northern New Mexico than Eagle Rock Lake. Minutes from Questa, the three-acre pond is loaded with trout after being stocked last week. In hopes of filming Pautzke Outdoors on a small, family friendly lake where parents can take their children to catch [...]

Last Chance for Pike in Northern Ontario

By: Chris Shaffer Northern Ontario is littered with some of the best fishing in North America. With that in mind it didn’t take much convincing for us to fly north and spend a three-day weekend targeting burbot, brook trout and splake in hopes of filming Pautzke Outdoors. With good weather on hand doing so wasn’t [...]
