New Mexico/Colorado Trout Hammering Pautzke’s New Fire Balls


By: Chris Shaffer New Mexico trout anglers likely use more Pautzke salmon eggs than any other state. It’s one of the few places where we could drop a pallet of Green, Tyee, Premium or Gold Label salmon eggs on the floor of a retailer and be confident they would all sell in a few months. [...]

Valdez Alaska Seeing Good Silver Bite


By: Chris Shaffer It took a mere 15 seconds to catch our first silver salmon out of Valdez and the bite didn’t slow down after. It was reminiscent of several years ago when Tim Bouchard of Valdez Outfitters used our Fire Brine herring to nab easy limits in a few short hours while filming Pautzke [...]

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. We are going to have a much better run than predicted. They were completely wrong with the poor run predicted. But, to be fair a lot of that [...]

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 [...]

Greater Anchorage Area Loaded with Salmon


By: Chris Shaffer Last year at this time thousands of local anglers and us were frustrated beyond belief as walks along most creeks in the Anchorage Bowl and Turnagain Arm produced few encounters with silvers. This August has been the opposite. The greater Anchorage area is flooded with silvers, which brings up the unthinkable question. [...]

Union Valley Reservoir Kicking Out Quality Kokanee


By: Troy Barr Union Valley’s kokanee fishing has been incredible summer. It’s a long ways for me to drive, but with the quality of fish this high mountain lake has been producing it’s been worth it. I wish it were closer because many of us Northern California kokanee anglers would be there all the time [...]

New York Salmon Bite – The Best in Many Years


By: Andy Bliss Salmon fishing on Lake Ontario this year has been incredible. In Oswego, we normally get some kings late June and then early July and then they go away until mid August, but this year they never left. We’ve been catching salmon of all sizes and lots of them. A typical trip this [...]

Buoy 10 King Run Peaking Now


By: Kyle Buschelman Experts anticipated an above average run at Buoy 10 this year and that’s meeting expectations. I think this year is a normal Buoy 10 year. It’s not super good and it’s not slow like last year when we struggled largely due to water challenges. The run is lining up the way it’s [...]

Michigan Shoreline Experiencing Epic Salmon Bite


By: Kyle McClelland This is the best salmon fishing season I’ve seen on Lake Michigan since I was born. Not only are there good numbers of salmon, but the fish are big. This season 20-30 pounders are common. We catch them every trip. We haven’t caught any bigger than 40 pounds, but some anglers have [...]
