NOAA solicits public comment for steelhead fishery proposal

Home to a revered population of ESA-listed wild winter steelhead, Washington’s Skagit River and its main tributary, the Sauk, have been closed to spring catch-and-release fishing since 2011. That could all change in early 2018, however, as NOAA is considering granting a harvest permit to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and its tribal co-managers.

Rio Fly Lines How to Perfect Your Forward Cast

Even if you've been flyfishing for many years, it's good to occasionally go back and re-visit the basics--both for our own imperfect casting, and for your ability to articulate it to friends who may be asking for advice. If videos like this were available 20 or 30 years ago, maybe many of us would never have picked up our bad habits to begin with.

Texas Trout Streamer Guadalupe River

Texans tend to claim that things are bigger in the Lone Star State. That claim seems to hold true when it comes to trout. Starting in November of each year, the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department begin dumping some 300,000+ rainbow trout into waters around the state as part of their annual Winter Trout Stocking Program. Most of these fish range between seven and twelve inches, but this year, the Guadalupe River is receiving some true trophy fish.

True story, says the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust, which hopes to increase fish survival odds with its latest series of Bahamas-based educational vids. Join BTT Initiative Manager Justin Lewis, here on the flats of Grand-Bahama, as he demonstrates some textbook tips for better bonefish handling.

New regulations for Florida Keys permit would heighten protections during the spring-spawn timeframe 

To ramp up safeguards for spawning permit on the prowl, Florida Fish and Wildlife commissioners will consider adding the month of April to the preexisting no-take closure inside the state's Special Permit Zone (SPZ)—the waters south of Cape Florida in the Atlantic and south of Cape Sable in the Gulf.

Grande Ronde River institution has been a steelheaders' hub since the 1940s

Boggan’s Oasis, home base for anglers fishing Washington’s Grande Ronde River, burned to the ground last Saturday night. Situated at the bottom of the circuitous Rattlesnake Grade along Highway 129, Boggan’s is the only semblance of civilization for miles. It's been a hub of fishing activity since the '40s.

Salsa Cycles Blackmorow Fat Tire Flyfishing

Though mountain bikers and flyfishers often overlap in their choice of craft beers and flannelwear, for the most part these two subcultures have adopted a "separate but equal" mantra. Salsa Cycles aims to bridge that gap with their new Blackmorow Fat Bike. In their video, "Touching The Sun," Hansi Johnson and Mike Reimer load their aluminum work horses to the brim with fishing and camping gear and head into the woods of Northern Minnesota.
