Wisconsin’s Washington County spring hearing draws small crowd

The four-year lag between in-person spring hearings (the last one was in 2019) took a toll on attendance at the Washington County spring hearing. Only 42 people registered at the meeting in West Bend April 8, compared to 95 in 2019 and 190 in 2018 when a crossbow question drew a larger than normal crowd.
The first issue dealt with at the hearing was a change in the makeup of the county’s Conservation Congress delegates.

Fishing the large waterway of Pennsylvania’s Big Pine Creek is tough chore right now, but the trout are there

This past Sunday morning I headed to camp in Tioga County to visit one of my favorite Pennsylvania trout streams, the Big Pine Creek. 
Through the many years, I’ve cast nymphs, dry and wet flies and occasional plugs. The majority of my angling here has taken place from the upper section in Potter County near the town of Galeton, downstream through the magnificent Pennsylvania Grand Canyon section, and ending about a mile or so below the little hamlet of Blackwell.

Ohio 15-year-old catches giant blue catfish, likely setting new state record

On a sunny Sunday afternoon on April 7, 15-year-old New Richmond High School sophomore Jaylynn Parker lit a match to the Ohio fishing world with her 101-pound plus blue catfish she caught on a jug line in a little flooded creek just west of New Richmond.
It’s quite possibly the largest fish ever caught and recorded in modern times in Ohio. The monster catfish measured 56-1⁄2 inches long, (nearly 5 feet) and was as big around as a pot belly human at 39-1⁄2 inches.

Mike Raykovicz: New York hunters will notice a change to their license this fall

This fall, New York hunters will notice a change in their hunting license. The New York Department of Environmental Conservation has announced the paper used to print hunting licenses will change from the familiar synthetic stock now used to plain paper.
According to the DEC, this change will allow a quicker and easier way for sportsmen and women to access their new hunting licenses. Hunters will be able to print their licenses and tags at home by going online.
