Re: Use trolling flies for rainbow?

Don’t think of leaded line as fishing super deep. It’s just a matter of how many colors you are running behind the boat. You can keep it fairly shallow. Leaded line will be a more natural presentation. If you are using a mono mainline, and sinkers as you said, and then running line/leader down to f...

Re: WDFW closes sportfishing statewide

The state doesn't have the resources to police every body of water in the state so it will happen. I hope those who flaunt the law get the same punishment any poacher would because they are poaching since fishing is closed. Although I strongly disagree with the broad brush closure action, and see no...

Re: WDFW closes sportfishing statewide

Some people are ignoring the closure, talked to a buddy yesterday and at least two bank anglers at Roosevelt, one near Seven Bays, got personal attention from enforcement. [rolleyes]

Re: 2nd day Banks lake chain winter trout bank fishing

Were it not for the pumping station there would be no connection to Banks, in fact, Banks would not exist. I think it quite a stretch to call it the "Banks chain" when the source water is pumped UPHILL from Roosevelt. No dispute on the irrigation project but your claim of it being the "Banks chain" ...

Re: What causes lice on fish?

They are ugly and although I wouldn't hesitate to retain a rainbow with a few, I would release any with a heavy infestation simply because that fish would be heavily stressed and unlikely to be good table fare.

Re: What causes lice on fish?

They're copepods and nothing to worry about. Usually caused from stress of changing water temperature. See it most frequently in spring, especially if water temps rise quickly.

Re: Deep Fryer recommendation

I bought an outdoor fryer so the splatter and odor stay there too. Caught a nice sale on the 2.5gal propane fryer (they make bigger ones too) here last spring. Awesome little unit, restaurant quality in the back yard. [thumbup]
