Learn to Cure Eggs For West Coast Steelhead

By: John Albrich Out West, from Northern California through BC, and into Idaho, there’s still steelhead runs taking place. Some are about to expire while others are still in full swing. Regardless of whether it’s early or late in the run I cure my eggs the same way. I prefer fresh coho or mature steelhead [...]

Oregon’s North Coast Steelhead Rivers To Fish This Week

By: Pat Abel Steelhead fishing has been challenging this year in the greater Tillamook area. Unfortunately, we’ve had to deal with snow, freezing cold, east winds and flooding. To be honest, I haven’t been on the water much because conditions haven’t allowed. We’ve had clients daily, but had to cancel trips due to harsh conditions. [...]

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 [...]

Anglers Finding Luck With North Oregon Coast Salmon

By: Dave Manners So far it’s been a decent year in Tillamook Bay and our tidewater. We’ve had highs and lows. There have been large waves of fish and there have been some days where they haven’t bit as good. With that said there’s still fresh fish on the way and we’ll be salmon fishing [...]

Learn To Add Seasoning For Trout/Salmon/Steelhead Success

By: Bob Kratzer Salmon constantly switch up what they key in on. Meanwhile, I’ve been noticing recently they are really focusing more on krill stuff. And, that’s with everything: my Super Baits, eggs and jigs. Krill scent defines our success right now and lately a lot of it is coming on jigs. What I’m trying [...]

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 [...]

Having good herring spells the difference between success and failure. When you brine bait you create bait that’s durable [...]

Learn The New No. 1 Coon Shrimp Recipe

By: Duane Inglin The Internet is littered with how to cure coon shrimp recipes. Some focus on recipes that are ready overnight, others take a few days, but the one I’ve been preaching for many years takes longer. I look for quality rather than a quick fix and something that will last for years when [...]
