Thinking big: Tips for catching impressive stream trout

Once the catch-and-kill opener passes in mid-April, stream trout fishing can become challenging.
You’ll contend with more anglers than ever, but also fluctuating water levels and clarity due to spring rains.

If your heart is set on catching the biggest fish in your chosen waterway, you’d better do things a little bit differently than your competition.

Remembering George Shiras, the “father of wildlife photography”

Trail cameras are a valuable tool used by many hunters. These eyes in the woods provide hunters and outdoor enthusiasts with a “24/7” look at game and non-game activity.

Here’s where to catch a ‘humpback’ in the Great Lakes area

If you do a quick online search for Alaska fly-fishing guides who target pink salmon, you’ll get plenty of hits.

If you believe the hype, 100-fish days on some rivers are a real thing and not just marketing hyperbole. It can, and has, happened.
Try that same online experiment for the Great Lakes, however, and your search is far from a target-rich environment.
