Feather River Salmon Better Than Predicted

By: Scott Feist The ocean fishing has been spectacular this year out of San Francisco and that’s already translating into a good bite on the Feather River.

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 [...]

By: Terry Wiest The Springers are coming! Meanwhile, the Columbia River is high and dirty. Therefore, many anglers will be looking for smaller water alternatives. On the other hand, to approach smaller water alternative tactics need to be employed, which we’ll cover in this blog. In the Northwest we have several alternatives to the Columbia [...]

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 [...]
