    A device originally designed to move apples without bruising them is now being used in Washington state to help separate hatchery salmon from wild salmon.  In their video coverage, CBS News reports that the “salmon cannon” may also be used to shoot salmon over dams, to help migration during the extensive drought being experienced on the US west coast.

    It's not all about the Gorge and Black Canyon MENTION THAT YOU'RE PLANNING A TRIP to Colorado's Gunnison River, and a likely response will be something like, "Oh, cool—are you fishing Black Canyon or floating the Gorge?" Which makes perfect sense. After all, between the famed salmonfly hatch and national park status of Black Canyon, and the horse-pack/ rafting reputation of Gunny Gorge, it's hard to imagine a flyfisher having not heard of the Gunnison proper. But what about the upper Gunnison, near Crested Butte? Never heard of it? Join the club.

    30 Oct 2014 | 8:03 pm
    The Florida freshwater fishing forecast for the last two days of October and the first week of November will give central Florida anglers a mixed weather forecast and the first-quarter moon phase that favors the early evening anglers. Morning anglers will start to see improvements in fish feeding activity this weekend unless they start fishing at 5:30 a.m. With the first-quarter moon phase arriving today the major feeding migrations move into the 5 to 10 hours of the day and the minor migrations during the 11 to 2 hours.

    This week I interview Shawn Brillon, the King of Swing here at Orvis.  He’s a master at strategizing on swinging flies for both Atlantic salmon and steelhead, and his strategy works for trout streamers and wets as well.  It should serve to get you jazzed up for steelhead season—I know it did for me.  In the Fly Box, we talk about landlocked Atlantic salmon, best all-around line for a switch rod, a basic saltwater outfit and flies for almost anywhere in the world, plus I get pressed to pick which three fly rods I would pick if I could only have three for all of my…

    Floods devastated the Front Range of Colorado in the fall of 2013. Now, one year later, roads have been repaired but the reality of what the infrastructure has done to trout habitat and populations is stark, with many trout relocating themselves to places where they can survive. “Ultimately, the fate of the two rivers was torn between the needs of humans and the needs of fish and nature,” writes Ryan Maye Handy. “In the year after the flood, humans — their homes, sewage lines and roads — won.” Via The Coloradoan.

It starts as a spark, then a faint flicker of vermilion on the landscape. Soon it will grow and undulate, slave to the movement of air.

    To find the fish, follow the butterflies In March and April, depending on where you live on the East Coast, the first broods of monarch butterflies hatch from their chrysalis (a cocoon to you and I) and enjoy a short two- to six-week life span. They do what butterflies are best at: they flit around, eat flowers, look pretty, avoid elementary schoolers with nets, and dodge feisty birds. They will follow an irresistible pheromone-scent trail, find some butterfly love, mate, lay eggs on a select milkweed plant, then die. From these eggs, a second generation of monarchs emerges in May and June,…

    Lee Spencer and the steelhead of the North Umpqua THE SUMMER OF 1998 was good to Lee Spencer. By fall he’d raised 77 steelhead to his fly on Oregon’s famed North Umpqua River, landing about half of them. (Spencer keeps meticulous notes.) Yet there was a problem. Of the fish he’d landed, three had died—two of them wild. He’d also once brought in a steelhead eyeball on his hook.

Restaurants come and go quickly around here, but this place had a twist: A lily pad-filled concrete moat stocked with ravenous rent-a-bass. Even late into a summer pub crawl, I could see hotwater gamefish finning below the front deck, making predatory lunges at dip spit, lime rinds, and roaches.

    Nice catch of dolphin on the Mary B III - 32 keeper dolphins It was a great day for fishing today on the Mary B III.  The dolphin were snapping in 350-400ft of water today, just a mile and a half off the Fort Lauderdale beach.  The morning trip was good, but the afternoon was even better.  We started the morning drifting on the reef, picking up a few snappers and some other assorted bottom critters (grunts, triggers, porgies).  A few boats just outside of us were catching some scattered mahi-mahi, so we decided to go give that a try.  We went out to 350ft of water and set up on a drift.

Excuses aside, the next time you find a wind knot in your leader, don’t neglect it! A single wind knot can reduce the strength of your leader or tippet by up to 50%! In other words, your 12…

    Fall fly fishing in the the region offers plenty of great opportunities. The cooler weather offers anglers some solitude of fly fishing while many are caught up with other fall activities. A little bit of preparation can be a rewarding opportunity for those who can make the time.Reproduction plays an important part of the trout lifecycle during the fall months for both brook and brown trout. Brook trout, native to the US, usually begin to spawn during late September through October. Brown trout typically start spawning in October through late November. I have seen this go later too.During the…

The conditions were tough in God's Country, as water was low and gin clear in most every place we went. Despite tough conditions, everyone was able to find trout and the fishing was much better than it had been when we had our summit in the Spring. Mid to late April is simply too early to have great fishing in the Potter/Tioga/Clinton area. My dad, Sal, and I arrived at camp around 9am on Thursday after what was possibly the…

  • 2014 Pennsylvania Fly Casting Champions Crowned

    17 Sep 2014 | 2:40 pm
    The 2nd Annual Pennsylvania Fly Casting Competition was held at the Carlisle Events Outdoor Show at the Carlisle Fairgrounds on September 6. Contestants were challenged for accuracy and distance events in several different skill categories. In the distance component, casters earned points for the length of their casts and had to place their flies within a narrow 10-feet wide lane. Accuracy casting required contestants to land their flies within 30-inch and 54-inch target rings at random ranges between 25 to 60 feet. Derek Eberly of East Petersburg, Pennsylvania, was overall high scorer as…

    Stu
    17 Oct 2014 | 12:10 pm
    This month Autumn arrived with the first proper rain storm of the season, just in time for Wendy to run the Rivington Half marathon a couple of weeks ago and almost three months since our summer break on Anglesey. After our break a lot of the weekends have been taken up running, walking or cycling round the Lancashire countryside. The hills around Chorley have been particularly colourful with one of my runs accidentally timed to perfection as I ventured over Great Hill and ended up surround by miles and miles of purple heather. With the sun shining and views as far as the Lake District and…
  • Traeth Cymyran Walk to Ynys Feirig

    17 Aug 2014 | 12:27 pm
    After Thursdays time on the beach we were both feeling a little tender on our shoulders where we should have re-applied sunscreen a lot earlier than we did, nothing serious but still a little too sore for the blazing midday sun so we elected to have an easy last day (all our Anglesey days are easy) and go for our walk after an early evening dinner. It was to be a day of ’lasts’. We did our last run before breakfast, the 6k loop along the Menai Straits and past the Sea Zoo, it was still hot even early in the morning but the run was great and set us up for a day of relaxing at the cottage.

    A ‘proper’ holiday in North Wales isn’t really complete until you’ve spent at least one full day lounging on the beach, no matter what the weather throws at you. Once more we were blessed with glorious weather during our two week stay on Anglesey so in a repeat performance from last year we did our ‘beach day’ on Newborough Beach. After the 10 minute drive (it took us longer to pack our picnic) we arrived at the car park just before 10am. The weather was fantastic with blue skies, sun scorching the marram grass sheaths sculptures and a slight breeze to keep…
  • Fish from the Rocks at Aberffraw Headland

    After a lazy morning we headed over to the headland between Aberffraw bay and Porth Cwyfan where we’d walked a few days earlier to try a spot of sea fishing either side of low water. When we got to the spot we thought would be great to float fish and bottom fish we found it impossible to get on to the ledge we’d spied so had a quick rethink and explore and ended up fishing from a different set of rocks, not ideal as I wanted to fish straight into Aberffraw bay but the weather was great, seas calm and it’s always worth a go. I was fishing at distance with pulley rigs to keep…

    Every time that I've had the opportunity to hit the river this fall the, the rainbows have been hungry, which makes me happy and sad at the same time.  Happy because catching rainbow trout (especially ones that are over the 15 inch mark) is as enjoyable to me as any activity on this planet and sad because each morning I notice the temperatures dropping, which means that my days of productive drift fishing are numbered.  So, since I know that fall fishing will be over soon, that means that I need to hit the river as much as I can in the next four weeks or so.  Which is exactly…

    As I began my hour or so hike down the partially dry creek bed to get to this years favorite fall trout fishing spot, I couldn't help but notice that the leaves on the birch trees have not only changed color, but are also beginning to fall from the trees.  I would imagine that the three or four days of unseasonably cool weather that we had a week or so ago "triggered" the color change, but whatever it is that is causing the leaves to do their thing earlier than normal, I'm not complaining. I love to see the fall color change happen, because it triggers the real start of the fall trout…

    So, I have been fishing when I get the chance between school, clinicals, and work. It seems like the water has been turning over forever lately but the topwater bite is pretty good, at least for the spotted bass (not the stripers yet!). I was using a Zara spook in blue shad color in 70 degree water temp on the chattahoochee river trying to get the stripers to blow up on it and caught this little spotted bass! Conditions were a little windy (its fall) and air temp was in the 50s.I will keep you Informed of my fishing situation,  stay tuned!

    Photo by Andrew Massard Last night around 8PM I found myself meandering down a beach path. I hadn’t surfcasted the beach since my trip to outer Cape Cod – it felt good to smell the salt air again. The wind yesterday evening was calm and the skies overcast. It was going to be a dark night on the beach, which I enjoy. I was quite amazed at what transpired next. Intercepting a School of Migratory Stripers As I stepped foot onto the beach a breeze from the west swept across the water in front of me. Instantly it began to rain, albeit lightly. I rushed to get the waterproof casing…

  • 2 Places To Find A Keeper Striper From Shore This Week On Cape Cod

    Ryan Collins
    27 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    As of right now the weather for this week is looking pretty reasonable. Unless the forecast changes (as it often does!) we might receive a day or two of “balmy” southwest winds. If you want to catch at least one more keeper striper from shore on Cape Cod, then I feel this is the week to do it. In this post I’ll share with you a few places worth checking out over the next several days. The Cape Cod Canal The Canal is probably the most reliable place for a keeper this week from shore. The rain and north winds of last week really dirtied the Canal up. During the fall and…
  • Dowses Beach Fish Pier, Osterville

    Garet Suomala
    24 Oct 2014 | 2:06 am
    This is a guest post written by MFCC contributor Garet Suomala I went fishing at Dowses Beach with Ryan a couple weeks ago before work. We fished on the fish pier instead of the nearby jetty, because the pier is a flat surface, which is much safer for me, compared to the slippery rocks of the jetty. The second reason I like fishing from a pier is because when we caught fish, it was much easier for me to take them off the hook. For example, my balance is not so good and it would not have been safe for me to try to unhook the fish while my feet were slipping all over the place. Also,…

    The fishing club that I belong to has a very efficient web based booking system. It is all very slick. You log on with a password, tick little boxes, and when you are done it sends you an automated e-mail. Very functional. But back in the day, we had to deal with people! One club had a truly dear lady, whom one phoned at set times in the evening. She chatted away, and got to know each of the regular club members, at least in an “over the phone” kind of way.  As a high school kid, my car owning friend obliged and the two of us fished every single day of the holidays, booking the next…

    There is hardly a day goes by that I don't receive an email, phone call, text, or a message from someone who is asking for some assistance in sorting out what fiberglass fly rod that they should be looking for.  I enjoy these conversations and it can be a lot of fun pointing people to a certain fly rod or maker and then hear back months later how it was the exact fly rod they were looking for.Some that I talk with come with a pretty good idea of what they want as far as the line weight or taper desired but there are times when others are completely hung up on a certain blank color that…
