Yak or sky?

My brother and I are taking the drift boat down either the Yak for fly fishing or the Sky for steelhead this weekend. Neither of us have been out for silver fish at all this year and were hoping for some put from you guys. Which would be a better bet this weekend?

TAKE A WOUNDED WARRIOR FISHING

Right now I don't if this will work, as I am semi-handicapped myself, but I would  like to try to take some of our HEROS fishing. I lived in Port Angeles, on the Straits, and I would like to start a"Wounded Warrior fishing program for the whole of WA. I don't think it would matter if its Bass (freshwater), Salmon, Halibut, bottom fish, or just a day in the outdoors or on the water! I am putting this out there to see what kind of response I get, I know People I am definitely taking out…

TRUTHS AND TAILS, SOONER OR LATER!

  OK,OK, So some information isn't worth a ....  The Rufas Woods release does not measure up as advertized, seems to me that an average fish might go 2lbs, an I doubt it was over 2500 fish if that.  Its a shame that solid information is so hard to come by on that fishery, but thats just how it goes.  Walleye fishing on Rufas has slowed from the slamming start back in march, but early post spawn is often tough.  Still, a few nice fish are coming to the net, mostly on jigs, or craw…

TRUTHS AND TAILS, FAVORITEST, BESTEST, MONTH. RUFAS RELEASE!!

  So here we are in May, water temps ranging fron 53 to near 60 degrees in the "pocket water" areas.  As expected, the crawdad imitating bite is improving steadily as the signal craws move closer to thier spawn.  Smallmouth are responding with abandon to cranks or plastics representing craws on both Banks and Roosevelt.  Fish from 3 to 12 ft. depending on light and wind conditions.  Walleye in the northern basin are either spawn or post spawn.  More "empty" fish being caught in the last few…

TRUTHS AND TAILS, HOW ABOUT THAT WEATHER?

  Spring, a constantly altered state that requires us to wear uncomfortable layers of clothes that limits our ability to move, only to shed them in a sweaty lump, scrambling to find a place in the boat that will prevent them from exiting on the next run like cockroaches when the lights come on.  Spring, when our hands can be nearly frozen, unable to detect that almost nonexsistant nibble from a fish as cold as we are, only moments later to have the rod nearly ripped from our frozen grip. …

TRUTHS AND TAILS, WHAT'S UP ???

  Here we go !!!!  With water temps on the main lake near or at 45 degrees, many things are beginning to happen at once!  Keep in mind that protected waters can be several to many degrees higher than the main lake, so those areas may be days to weeks ahead of others.  Both rainbow and walleye are now spawning, although as I've said in earlier blogs nature never puts all her eggs in one basket, so there are walleye and rainbow in pre, post, and active spawning modes as we speak.  So what does…

TRUTHS AND TAILS, TOO MANY CHOICES !!!

  The common phone call right now starts out with " How's the fishin?"  If there was ever a loaded question, that has to be it!  There are so many variables that effect fish movement and fish feeding at this time of year that it is a day by day, sometimes hour by hour senerio that would take a crystal ball to nail down.  That said, just a basic understanding of the species you pursue can narrow down the choices of when, where, and what in a hurry.  Add to that the history of a given fishery…

TRUTHS AND TAILS, CLOSE BUT......

  Well, Northwest Bass has come and gone.  Eighty seven boats competed, a good showing indeed!  The weather was a bit less than ideal, but most anglers had a good morning till the wind built up from the north turning the main lake into a challenge.  The wieghts were a bit lower than I predicted, but at 18.69 for first, 17.99 for second, and 17.90 for third, they came very close to 20.0 lbs!  I'm not sure if that north wind was a factor in fish activity, or if it just made presentations…

TRUTHS AND TAILS GAME ON!!!!!

  Well folks, as predicted, things here on Banks Lake have picked up significantly!  Yesterday, a group of guys including Dave Graybill tried their hand at the Triple Fish Challenge.  In one day, they caught a bunch of smallies crankin, several nice walleye pulling bouncers, and a hand full of Rainbow trolling rippin minnow plugs and shad raps tight to shore.  There will be a TV show made from this trip, so watch for it soon!  NW Bass will be here saturday, and with the stable weather, my…
