Best Fishing Nearby By Debbie Kay

When I was a kid, my parents would pack themselves and four kids into the station wagon and set off across the country each summer and spring break in search of adventures.  Quite often, there would be a trailer towed behind the wagon carrying my dad’s BMW dual sport motorcycle, his favorite diversion when life and stress got overwhelming.  It was my parent’s compromise to head someplace like Disneyworld, the Phantom of the Opera in Toronto, or the Grand Old Opry together, with the knowledge that one or two days of our weeklong journey dad would be biking the most scenic roads nearby (usually with one of us riding behind him).  Continue reading America’s Top Tourist Destinations (and the Best Fishing Nearby)

Catching Paddlefish is Hooking a Living Dinosaur

By Debbie Kay

At 500 pounds and up to 6 feet long, the paddlefish is an under-appreciated giant of the Mississippi River basin.  This living fossil – estimated to be 75 million years old – has spread to every part of the Mississippi drainage, with possible sightings that reach hundreds of miles further.  Its big range, impressive size and sheer weirdness make it a great catch.  Here’s the short rundown on one of our favorite fish from middle America.

Canadian Gold Rush Threatens Alaska Fisheries

Critics Say Those Threatened by New Mines Have No Say in Their Regulation, Putting People and Ecosystems in Danger

By Robert Deen

A modern-day Gold Rush in British Columbia – driven by weakened environmental regulations and a massive new power line – is creating one of the world’s largest mining districts.  While many have benefited, US opponents claim the boom jeopardizes Southeast Alaska’s salmon, rivers, fishing and tourism jobs, and that Americans have no say in the matter.

Dismal Returns & Tough Choices for Hatchery-marked Coho

Low Coho Numbers Force Compromises Choices for Fisheries Managers in the North Pacific

By Debbie Kay

From British Columbia to Northern California, state, federal, provincial and tribal fisheries managers are considering the fate of the ocean-run summer salmon fisheries this year.  The main topic on the table?  This year’s dismal return rate for coho salmon.  In Puget Sound, the count was just 300,000 individuals out of more than a million that had been expected.  For next year the estimate is only about half-a-million, using the same counting methods as before hatchery-marked coho.  The Pacific Coast states and provinces to the North and South didn’t fare any better, though Columbia River Chinook levels were at a record high.  Because of these severe drops in the population, there’s been a lot of push for a summer with no sea-run salmon fishing.  This initially got a lot of push-back, but has been accepted as one of the three management options on the table for the Pacific Fishery Management Council to choose from in April.  Let’s take a look at the three programs on the table: Continue reading Dismal Returns & Tough Choices for Hatchery-marked Coho
