March Madness is coming! Just a few months away – This is the time for Trophy Catch and Release

He was roughly measured inside of a knotless, rubber coated “conservation” catch and release net. He was roughly 39″x21″, a true trophy and a very memorable experience that will stick with me the rest of my life.  The big fish are moving in the river systems now and specially after this rainfall we just late in late February the Native Steelhead catch & release fishery should begin its climb, now until the peak which is usually around mid-march. During this time of year, I switch from #4 hooks to #2 sized hooks and up my main line to 12lb P-line CX premium. If i’m fishing Pink Worms, I will use 17lb CX Premium to a 1/0 Owner Mosquito hook. Pink Worms are normally fished in more “dangerous” river situations, meaning they are fished close to log-jams, boulders, overhanging tree’s, clay shelves and other “obstacles” which requires an angler to stretch the limits of “powering” the fish away from these obstacles which could result in breaking off with the lighter tackle used for smaller hatchery fish.

Going With The “Flow”

Going With The Flow / The Outdoor Line

hawks-12

By Joseph Princen

The past few weeks have been nothing short of challenging, trying to persuade those silvery ghosts to commit to the presentation you spent hours prepping, tying, wrapping and curing. One thing is certain, when it all works out there is nothing more spectacular than rolling fresh chrome in shallow gin-clear water. Its an image you’ll never forget. Its burned into your mind and it will replay over and over in slow motion bringing you back again and again for more. Continue reading
