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 ...

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. Something that was once only popular in fly-fishing has now found its way into mainstream angling. 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...

Secrets Hurt Our Fisheries
We can agree that our fish are in trouble. Every year we witness another set of disappointments. If it’s not another early closure, or reduced catch, or some other concession, we are losing the battle to improve our fisheries. I dare say, we are losing our fisheries altogether.As we spoke to hundreds of citizens at the recent Sportsmen show in Puyallup, one thing became very clear. A good many sportsmen are really not aware of how our fisheries are managed.The 1974 Boldt Decision spl...

The Things I've Learned
During this past fishing season, I believe that I’ve grown not only as a person, but as an angler, as well. As we are all aware, each season changes, whether it’s as subtle as a different color change, or as substantial as a different lure that works all together. Either way, we must remain fluid in regards to our local Departments of Fish & Wildlife with their projected forecasts and/or stocking reports. In this past season, I’ve fished for Kokanee, Trout, Walleye, Salmon, Steelhead, Sturgeon,...

5 Five Star Lakes & Streams
The fishing in Washington State is legendary. Brook trout, cutthroat and rainbows are plentiful in many of Washington’s Lakes because these fish are adaptable and prolific in their spawning. But sometimes they’re too prolific; this is termed “uncontrolled reproduction” and is something that happens in many of the high lakes. Such dense populations affect the fish themselves, so fishermen; the WDFW encourages a more liberal harvest in such areas. For us that mean healthier fish and a lot of extr...

Hook More Fish
Many anglers with expensive gear in the right place and time leave fishless because they haven’t learned or practiced finer points of Pacific Northwest fishing. Below are suggestions.Use a New-ish File and Sharp HookWorn or rusty files work, but not as well, and they take away valuable fishing time. A new file can turn a hook from dull to razor in a few strokes.A related issue happens when an angler snags, even temporarily, and fails to check the hook point. With a magnifying gla...

How to Catch Perch
Here in the Pacific Northwest it seems like salmon and steelhead get all the glory. I've only met a few people who fish for yellow perch, and many of them talk about it in whispers - like they are afraid to admit it in public.However, perch fishing can be a lot of fun, and they are quite tasty. It is a great way to get kids into fishing. In this article I'll go cover everything you need to know to go out and catch tons of perch.This article is focused on fishing from a boat, but much o...
