It has been a year; between work (retired yes, work yes but I would do it for no wages. I love my job) and life, fishing trips have been few and far between. Rating this trip is a challenge. The ratin...

Google Maps Can Make You a Better Fisherman

A Google map’s isn’t just to find your way to Grandma’s house anymore. For many years I have been using Google maps to find new fishing spots. You can learn a lot about a lake or river by just studying it in close detail on Google maps. You can find sunken islands and logs, rock plies you never knew were there and my favorite weedlines, as well as down trees, but in the last few years I have bee...

Lake Wenatchee Sockeye

I’ve tried just about everything to get them to bite, fro...

Kokanee are one of the Northwest's greatest treasures. If you've got a hankering for smoked salmon but the big boys aren't running, you can always head down to your local lake and get your limit. Kokanee are landlocked sockeye salmon; they tend to prefer cold, clear water with plenty of krill to feed on. They are smaller than their ocean going relatives but still incredibly tasty. Smoked kokanee i...
