Colorado’s Elevenmile Canyon Sporting Good Trout Bite


By: Chris Shaffer It didn’t matter who we asked, every one told us fishing the all-tackle section of Elevenmile Canyon wasn’t good this time of year. That included the attendant at the gas station where tackle was sold, the general store with a large tackle section, the fly shop, the local marina, the ranger station [...]

Drano Lake Springers Starting to Show


By: Toby Wyatt Following a slow March and early April many anglers were worried that this was going to be another disappointing springer run. However, we’re realizing that the fish are likely just a few weeks behind schedule. After a slow start to the run in the Lower Columbia River springers have finally started their [...]

Trout Fishing Update: Virginia’s Cripple Creek


By: Chris Shaffer Traveling to film fishing videos can be risky. Weather can cripple water conditions instantly. This was the case Tuesday when we arrived on the banks of Southwest Virginia’s Cripple Creek. Following several weeks of on and off heavy rain the creek wasn’t in good shape. It was high and almost muddy. Visibility [...]

Virginia’s Big Tumbling Running High But Fishable


By: Chris Shaffer Rain fell everyday this week in Southwest Virginia. All the creeks we fished were running high and off-colored. Some were unfishable. Fortunately, while much higher than normal Big Tumbling Creek is still fishable and loaded with trout as plants continue to arrive four days a week. We filmed two episodes of Pautzke [...]

Durham’s Falls Lake Producing Lots of Catfish


By: Chris Shaffer Not too long ago we headed to Kerr Lake to film Pautzke Outdoors with Wes Jordan of Redbeard Cats. The forecast was for no chance of rain.

South Platte River: Bait Section Update


By: Chris Shaffer The weatherman isn’t normally correct. That’s why we opted to ignore reports of 60mph gusts and drove from Colorado Springs to the South Platte River upriver of Deckers to trout fish. Unfortunately, this time the forecast was correct. The weather was hideous when we stepped out of the car and attempted to [...]

Last Chance for Wisconsin Steelhead


By: Kyle Deavers In March and April we’ve been plagued by low water along the Southeast Wisconsin shoreline. These conditions have made steelhead fishing tough.
