Low Water Steelheading
Well, if you've taken a look at our rivers lately, you'll notice that they are crystal clear. That means nearly unlimited visibility, bright sunny days and spooky steelhead. In spite of these unfavorable condition, you can still catch steelhead. And a lot of them. I decided it's time to let the cat out of the bag, so to speak, and give you all some advice to help catching steelhead. Because if you take my advice, not only will you be more likely to catch fish, you'll be helping out the rest of...  [read more]

Barbless trebles or siwash?
Now that Columbia regs state we all have to change out our hooks on the million or two salmon/steelhead plugs that every fisherman has.I was wondering what would be the best hooks to use in this situation.Seems to me using a barbless treble might be more opt to pop out than say a siwash or sickle hook.I do know from my experience fishing selective water that putting a small barrel swivel between the hook and snap ring helps keep the fish from throwing the hook....  [read more]

Our Lund Renegade 1650, Before and After
Shortly after we purchased our Lund I promised that I would keep everyone up to date with the upgrades, improvements and our overall satisfaction with the boat. But first, as an interesting side note; sadly Lund has removed the Renegade 1650 from their product line up. They had a niche following here on the west coast but overall the Renegade model line fell short of their sales performance goals. I guess that our boat is truly one of a kind. Over the years I have owned everything from kayaks to...  [read more]

Kokanee Fever, Kokanee Katching Thoughts Revisited
With the warmer weather it seems as though there is a renewed interest in kokanee fishing here in Western Washington. A number of fellow WashingtonLakers have already had successful kokanee outings on Lake Stevens, a popular north end kokanee lake. The other day while heading south to Everett to drop some recently fabricated boat parts off at the powder coater I was talking with my grandson (he never stops talking…) and he asked what a kokanee was. After my initial response that it was &l...  [read more]

Steelhead: No egg? No Problem!
Well, although many rivers in the state are now closed for Steelhead fishing, there are still some opportunities from now through April, including the Skookumchuck, Wynoochee and a few others. I thought I should make a quick comment on what to do if you like fishing bait, but have no access or ran out of a seasons supply of roe! Many people have asked me to buy eggs off me, the first thing I tell them is... you dont need to! Ever since I started Steelhead fishing, I cannot say that I have caught...  [read more]
