I've lived in this area my entire 49 years, and had never fished Ki until today. HO-LEE-SMOKES what a day. I lost count at well over 40 fish landed. If I continue with days like this I will need to in...

Very strange day on Stevens for me today. I was in the water by 5am, pedaling out towards the east shoreline where I wanted to try first. Stevens has always been an early morning bite, with some brief...

I've had some great days fishing on Lake Goodwin, but this might have been my best morning there as far as action and fish quality. I was at the gate right as the ranger opened it up to the launch. By...
