Rigging Worms for Bass
Soft plastic lures are the quintessential bass bait.They may not be the most popular lures among tournament pros, and they aren’t as trendy as swimbaits (which are arguably a type of soft plastic bait) or umbrella rigs are; but anglers will continue to cast plastic worms into lakes and rivers for as long as bass live in them – and they will continue to catch fish while doing so.There are a million reasons to love soft plastic worms, but one of the key strengths of these lures is that th...

Columbia Gorge Bass
The Dalles, OR-Later this month the prized Spring Chinook run will dwindle in the Columbia River Gorge.

Monster Rainbow Trout
One thing is certain. Anglers have been pulling huge rainbow trout from the North Fork of Idaho’s Clearwater River, even fish that easily smash the 20 pound state record for rainbow trout. But none have counted — mainly because any trout over 20 inches has to be released — and because no one seems completely certain just what these fish are.A rainbow trout is a rainbow trout, right?
