Learn to Use a Fire Worm: Catch More Trout

By: Isaac Zettle I’ve fished for trout almost daily this year. Some days catching is easy. However, there’s other times when trout won’t grab salmon eggs, lures or dough bait. When trout get lockjaw it’s important to change your presentation. I do this by molding Fire Bait into what we call a Fire Worm. The [...]

Shasta Trout Transitioning to Summer Pattern

By: Chris Shaffer The temperature is rising in Northern California and as it does the surface bite on Lake Shasta is expiring. It lasted longer than many expected this year, however. Meanwhile, warmer water spells deeper trout, which is normal on Shasta in June. Based in Redding for a week to film episodes of Pautzke [...]

PA’s Bald Eagle Creek Still Loaded with Trout

By: Isaac Zettle For nearly a month it rained almost daily in Central Pennsylvania. The month was wet and made trout fishing challenging due to high water. In fact, we lost many days because creeks and rivers were too high and muddy. Fortunately, the waters have receded and are fishable again. The good news is [...]
