    Re: Fly of choice for halibut?

    Clouser minnow pattern in white with some chartreuse is the Anchovy imitation equivalent of white pickups at the sportsman show. They're everywhere, and work well.

    Re: Trolling the Sac River for Stripers

    Growing up, trolling Rebels and Bombers for stripers in the Colusa area was standard practice in the spring. Same techniques surely work in between. There are fewer stripers in the river this time...

    Re: Tomales Bay Stripers

    Most striper reports from Tomales come on live bait or artificial lures cast or trolled. Seems bait caught fish are more of bycatch of guys fishing for halibut. That said, anything is possible.

    Re: Upper american river flows

    Yes there is. When Fred is on a Whiskey binge he normally passes out about 2:00 so the flows are stable for a few hours, but when he wakes up, he cranks up the flows to catch up. When Barney's...

    Congrats on a beauty of a Rainbow.

    Anyone know if Cutthroat are more prone to predation than Rainbows, Browns or Kokanee? I know they tend to be on the dumber end when it comes to catching them,...

    Re: Pyramid Weekend

    They may very well have been.

    Only once a year because I'm an idiot is the best answer. It's a three hour trip and just hard to get things planned in advance. I frequently talk about getting...

    Pyramid Weekend

    Made our annual Pyramid Lake trip this weekend. Fishing was tougher for us than in prior years but the quality of fish caught was awesome. Over three days and six guys we had three fish over 10...

    Re: 17 ft Tracker Safety

    Thats a question only you can answer in my opinion. Boats can typically handle rougher water than folks think. It generally gets wet and uncomfortable well before you would get swamped. That...

    Bow mount MinnKota with Autopilot is the best fishing tool I've ever bought. Doesn't have to be the newest, most features, biggest, but being able to pull from the front vs. push from the back, and...

    Took a trip over last month. Jack smelt were up in the shallows or just off the edge where it drops into deeper water. They will home in on chum if you want to go that route. When we were there,...

    I think there is an hour or so at first light that has a benefit mainly of just quieter water that's been calm for several hours, but after that, I don't think it matters. Several writers and guides...
