Anglers Working Hard for Lower Red River Trout

By: Chris Shaffer Reading local fish reports you would think anglers were catching trout every cast on Northern New Mexico’s Lower Red River. New Mexico Game & Fish’s weekly report stated action was very good. We reacted by flying to Albuquerque and driving north to the Lower Red to cash in on the action, but [...]

Pecos River Loaded with Rainbows

By: Chris Shaffer Late summer and fall spells opportunity for trout anglers in New Mexico. Water levels have fallen to attractive levels, crowds are slightly lighter as many anglers are hunting and trout are more aggressive as cooler water temperatures have prevailed. In all, it’s an excellent time to trout fish, particularly on the Pecos [...]

Trout Bite Improving On Tennessee’s Caney Fork

By: Chris Shaffer High flows and large releases have kept the trout bite from taking off this summer on Tennessee’s Caney Fork, one of the most popular fisheries in the Southeast. Fortunately, recent cooler weather is aiding the bite. Fishing is improving and should continue to gradually get better through September and October as there’s [...]

Alaska Trout Grabbing New Fire Balls

By: Chris Shaffer Driving along the Richardson Highway on our way to salmon fish in Valdez Pautzke pro staffer Mike Wickkiser and I noticed a small waterfall on the left side of the road roughly 200 yards down an embankment. It was classic Alaska scenery upstream of a high mountain lake, looked trouty and we [...]

Chama River Fishing Well For Trout

By: Chris Shaffer Most rivers and streams in Northern New Mexico have finally receded to favorable levels and anglers are catching limits of trout following heavy stockings by New Mexico Game & Fish. This pattern should continue through early October as water levels continue to fall. Action at the Chama River remains impressive even amongst [...]

New Mexico’s Hopewell Lake Loaded with Trout

By: Chris Shaffer It’s been an interesting spring and summer at Northern New Mexico’s Hopewell Lake. The small, high mountain lake took longer than normal to shed its winter layer of ice. Anglers used to fishing the lake in late spring had to wait. Spring wildfires closed access to the area while firefighters dipped water [...]

Central Pennsylvania Still Has Trout

By: James Swearingen While fishing pressure has fallen off there’s still plenty of trout to be found in Central Pennsylvania. The good news is there’s fewer anglers out there targeting them. There were deer tracks on the shoreline last week, not boot prints, meaning you’ll be able to get your favorite hole to yourself, which [...]

New Mexico’s Red River Loaded with Big Rainbows

By: Chris Shaffer In New Mexico catching five-fish limits of trout that weigh more than 12 pounds isn’t common. In fact, it’s rare. Meanwhile, that feat can be achieved at the Red River, as long as you arrive soon. The river is stuffed with large trout now. It’s something we’ve never seen in the Land [...]

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 [...]

PA’s Big Poe Creek Loaded with Trout

By: Chris Shaffer Poe Valley is a favorite place for many Pennsylvanians to camp and fish. Many have been coming here for decades and fishing the lake and the creek below it. Meanwhile, if you haven’t been here in the last month expect many changes to Big Poe Creek. The storm that whipped through in [...]
