    Re: Total Kokanee Newb here...

    I agree they aren’t necessary, but they are often easier than the alternative. Kokanee are temperature sensitive and tend to suspend at a uniform depth. In the early season they can be up shallow...

    Re: Are huge trout good to eat?

    Well may be a bit late to the party on this one, but it’s a personal preference in my opinion. Larger fish tend to have a higher fat content. That fat tends to have a strong fish flavor to it. ...
  5. Re: Landlocked steelhead in thermalito afterbay

    Handy website. The afterbay is not an anadromous water. Two dams between it and the river, with no fish ladder. Not being a smart-a##, just been down that discussion road several times before. ...
  6. Re: Landlocked steelhead in thermalito afterbay

    Haven't fished it in a long time, so can't say how they've taken with the recent plants, but similar plants from the past created some very nice fish. They're classified as trout for F&W regulation...

    Re: Transom Height

    Personal preference in my book. Had my old Fishrite out of Fort Bragg and had a wave smack the transom for a cold bath, and that didn’t have a transom cutout at all. You even see big offshore...

    Re: Verona or Knights Landing

    Fishing below Verona keeps Feather fish in the picture. Just food for thought.

    Re: What Am I?

    Round spots say rainbow. If there were vermiculations (squiggly lines) or rosettes (circle with hole in the middle) its' color pattern might suggest tiger trout, but I don't see any. Based solely...

    Re: Trolling uphill?

    Plugs or spinners work best at same speed vs current. If you’re killing you battery trolling up stream, you’re trolling too slow downstream.

    Re: Sac/feather

    Congrats on getting pops onto some fish. Sorry to hear the big one got away, but gives you a reason to go back. I really enjoy that stretch of river above Gridley. Plenty of water to fish beside...

    Re: Line preference

    Most folks use braid raid for the reasons stated, but millions were caught on mono prior to the advent of braid. It’s a choice, not a necessity in my opinion.

  24. Re: Camping and Fishing - Best Practices for Cleaning Fish?
