non-native invasive species – the threat

Non-native invasive species by Sean Obrien

One of the biggest threats to our local environments is the threat and introduction of non-native invasive species. In fact, it is the second biggest threat to native species behind only habitat destruction. These unwanted guests can decimate populations of essential species of plant and animal life in specific areas, and cause untold damage to the future of our biodiversity. Although there are numerous laws and regulations regarding the introduction of non-native species to an environment, it still happens frequently. And in the case of some areas, the damage is far too great to be undone. Continue reading non-native invasive species – the threat

Fraser River gets Record Chum Run

Chum by Debbie Barton

The 2016 fall chum salmon run for the Fraser River, which borders Vancouver BC and opens out into Johnstone Strait to the North of the Washington’s San Juan Islands, was slow at first.  When it did come, however, the fish appeared in record numbers. The run, which now looks like it numbers 2 million, has been so large that some of the catches have swamped the boats of smaller commercial fishermen. Tidal and streamside anglers can look forward to a great season of chum as well from now until as late as Thanksgiving. Continue reading Fraser River gets Record Chum Run

Bass-Catching Brush Hogs

Brush Hogs by Ben Team

As much as I try to be mindful that bass see the world in an entirely different way than anglers do, I still find myself falling into this trap. Especially when it comes to lure selection. If I feel like the bass are chasing baitfish, I’ll tend to throw a spinnerbait, crank or paddle-tailed swim bait. But if I feel like they’re feeding on crayfish, I’ll opt for jigs or Texas-rigged crawfish-style baits. Continue reading Bass-Catching Brush Hogs
