Thunder Bay Steelhead Run Starting Early This Spring

By: Tom Armstrong Unseasonably warm weather has put us ahead of schedule in the greater Thunder Bay area. At this time last year we had snow along Superior’s north shore. This spring we're in t-shirts steelhead fishing. Ironically, as I’m writing this snowflakes started falling. Regardless of the weather, steelhead have started to migrate into [...]

GTA Seeing Early Spring Steelhead Action

By: Bojan Zivkovic During the past couple months we’ve experienced dramatic weather changes in Southwestern Ontario. Temperatures have been inconsistent. We've seen 30-degree differences in two days. These abnormal temperature swings have affected plants, wildlife and trout/steelhead. For example, a month ago mild temperatures drew steelhead into our rivers. Meanwhile, the systems were quick to [...]

High Water Forcing Anglers to Run Plugs for Columbia Springers

By: Mike Ainsworth A reflection of high water and lots of snowmelt this week the Columbia River is a foot and a half above flood stage. Fortunately, this doesn’t mean you have to forgo your spring king fishing. Meanwhile, you’ll likely have to alter your techniques to be successful. The springers are going to come [...]

Cowlitz Steelhead off to Slow Start – But Big Ones Around

By: Todd Daniels The Cowlitz River is the only place in Washington that has hatchery steelhead now. That’s it. Essentially, it’s a ghost town everywhere else.

More anglers are venturing on the [...]

Southern Ontario Steelhead Iced Into Winter Pattern

By: Bojan Zivkovic Our fall steelhead season flew by quickly in Southwestern Ontario. A reflection of low water conditions, many rivers saw poor returns. Low water has affected our winter steelhead, too. When we have high water our rivers normally fish in mid winter. Meanwhile, with the low water we have now many of our [...]

North Oregon Coast Still Seeing Fall Chinook

By: Big Dave Manners When I think about this fall’s salmon season on Oregon’s north coast two things come to mind: we had lots of rain and a big push of fish early and there’s still salmon coming in now. It’s been much different than last fall when rain didn’t arrive until much later in [...]

Learn To Rig A Bobber & Eggs For Fall Salmon

By Terry J. Wiest Is there anything more effective than good cured roe for salmon? Not that I’m aware of. I love to twitch for coho, but if I could only use one technique for all salmon, float fishing with eggs knocks the socks off any other technique. Here’s what I do to rig up [...]

Guide Reveals Perfect Egg Cure For Coastal Fall Salmon

By: Kyle Buschelman The season to catch large coastal salmon from Northern California to British Columbia generally runs mid October thru early December. Meanwhile, it’s peak time now. These coastal rivers and steams offer opportunity to catch large kings and some coho, too, but the fisheries can be competitive. As a guide we have to [...]

Learn A Quick & Easy Way To Preserve Cured Eggs

By: Mike Ainsworth There’s nothing worse that pulling eggs out of the freezer and them having freezer burn on them. Freezer burn is common when anglers throw eggs directly into a plastic bag and freeze them for storage. Here's a quick and easy way to help preserve your precious eggs. I have been curing salmon [...]
