Berryessa Trout Fishing Set to Bust Loose

By: Troy Barr Berryessa is full right now. It’s been spilling for more than 50 days. This hasn’t happened in a decade. We are excited. You’re going to be able to fish places we haven’t fished in 10 years. There are old humps, canyons and canals where we haven’t had any water in ages. Now [...]

By: Chris Shaffer   As spring rolls toward summer the inventory of trout in the Chattahoochee River near Helen increases.

Pennsylvania Trout Season Opens Saturday

By: Chris Shaffer The general Pennsylvania trout season opens Saturday when thousands of anglers flood the state’s rivers, streams, creeks, ponds and lakes where millions of trout have been stocked.

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.

New Mexico’s Rio Mora Stuffed with Trout

By: Chris Shaffer Did anyone in Northern New Mexico catch a 19-inch rainbow that broke them off recently? How about two of them? I’m sure many of you will say yes. Fortunately, we caught those two fish in the Rio Mora River yesterday. We first removed our hook, then the other and released them back [...]

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 [...]

Alaska’s Mat-Su Valley Producing Big Ice Bows

By: Chris Shaffer To be honest I wanted to stay in the hotel and sleep in. I’m more of a fair weather angler and after guide Dustin Slinker of The Bait Shack in Anchorage, Alaska, told me he expects us to get three bites in a half day, I wasn’t excited about fishing. Unfortunately, with [...]

Great Lakes Anglers Using Cured Shrimp for Trout/Steelhead

By: Kyle Deavers For the last decade I’ve been using spawn bags daily for steelhead. However, with more shrimp showing up in the Great Lakes I figured it was time to match the hatch and start using shrimp for bait in our tributaries. I still bring spawn bags to the river daily. However, last year [...]

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 [...]
