Select the Right Fishing Rod
Having the proper equipment is as important in fishing as it is in any sport. With a wide range of bait options and techniques, rod manufacturers have developed rods to cast specific baits farther and more accurately. They’ve also balanced these capabilities with other factors to give the angler an advantage over a hooked bass. A truly effective fisherman or woman can now pick the perfect tool. The correct rod for a given situation allows anglers to cast baits accurately, work baits properly, d...

Steelhead Side Drifiting 101
We all know drift fishing is a powerful technique for catching all kinds of river fish, including steelhead. What if told you there is a way to make drift fishing even better – cover more water, and keep your gear in the “zone” longer? Well that is side drifting.This boat based fishing technique is quite popular with fishing guides and recreational fishermen because it flat out puts fish in the boat. It doesn’t require much in special gear or lures – other than a boat, of course. The ex...

Prop Repair and Selection
I can remember the exact place and time it happened…My wife and I were fishing Lake Wenatchee for sockeye in our brand new Thunderjet. The fishing had been good but the dogs were letting us know that they needed a shore break. I scanned the shoreline and found what looked like the perfect spot to ground the bow and let the dogs hop out. I eased the boat on to shore and gave a little throttle to nudge us solidly in place. Then I heard it. Grind grind, chip chip chip. I knew immediately that ...

Puget Sound Searun Cutthroat
Sitting at the dinner table one Friday night my cell phone began ringing and the caller I.D. showed it was a fishing buddy of mine. I grabbed the phone and excused myself while my wife looked at me with a polite stare (in case she reads this article you know what I mean by “polite stare”) and I reassured her it would be a short conversation. As I answered the phone I wondered what he wanted. Our conversation started like this:“Buddy, what’s up?” his reply, “Wanna go fishing in the morning,...

Lake Washington Perch
Lake Washington Perch Fishing SecretsDuring the winter months I tend to fish mostly for perch. I like how simple and relaxing it is. Plus it is great fishing to take kids and new fishermen too – plenty of action to keep them entertained, and lets them learn the basics of working a rod and reel, setting the hook, and other basic fishing skills.This article, however, will focus on fishing in winter months in our western Washington waters – namely Lake Washington. For more information o...

Felt Soled Waders
Felt-Soled wading boots are a terrific invention. The fabric can make a slippery log or rocky bottom feel easy to navigate, and can even make a long day of standing feel a bit easier. But as great as these boots are, their fabric-coated soles are a known cause of transmitting certain invasive species and diseases into different streams, severely impacting the creeks and the fish in them.Felt-Soled Wading Boots – The ControversyBeginning in 2011, several states have begun to ban...

Catch and Release Tips
Whether you’re new to fishing or an experienced pro, chances are you practice some form of catch-and-release fishing.

The reasons for releasing fish vary: from anglers who like to fish but hate the taste, to anglers who practice strict conservation methods in the hope of sustaining a healthy fishery for future generations.To best ensure the lowest mortality rate possible for your catch, turn y...
