Re: Idiot Governor Ignores Science, Bans Bear Hunting on State Land

Politicians ignoring science is not just limited to our current governor, nor is it isolated to bear hunting. There is a whole climate of topics that politicians are ignoring science while making policies and laws. And it is not just ignoring the science, some politicians embrace the ignorance and d...

Re: The KLG

I bet poor handling of fish and fishing during water temps over 70°f take just as big a toll on fish populations in the gorge than anything else . Walked through there July 3rd in the evening ,water was way to warm over 70°f . There's 5 guys fishing to risers . Sure we had a great water year but fo...

Re: WTS surprise tenant

So I thought of this thread when I was out in the Big Flat Brook today and swear I saw a black colored eel slither away as I stepped upstream. Seems pretty far to go up the Delaware and then into the Flat Brook but I guess its possible? I was in the middle of the Flatbrook WMA and a little freaked ...

Re: anyone getting out?

I'm not sure which stream you are referencing but on the small wild trout streams I have been fishing I have noticed a lot of blue herons, more than in the past. Those guys must be affecting the trout populations. Too many angler “tweeting” favorite fishing locations! Don’t they know herons search ...

Re: Columbia Dam removal

Mark - maybe you can place a flag next to each tire so they are easy to find and they can make sure they are all collected. Joining the team is also OK.

Re: Idiot Governor Ignores Science, Bans Bear Hunting on State Land

If enough people asked the supermarkets to start stocking bear meat, then there wouldn't be any need to have a bear hunt, people can just get their bear meat at the store where they make all kinds of meat in their factories.

Re: Idiot Governor Ignores Science, Bans Bear Hunting on State Land

I agree with this...I also think that both sides of the aisle refuse to understand things that that they fear, not only the left, but the right as well....I stand firmly with the middle and science!!!!! :D I agree, ignoring science is not just a one political side story. Science is the best knowled...

Re: Pond Rehab and Stocking

Farm?

Naw, that was probably a typo and they really meant any private property.

Or, they could have really meant a farm.

Re: Pond Rehab and Stocking

I hear snake heads and Asian carp are loads of fun to catch ;) ...The stocking permit..You make an excellent point!! Thanks....but, I still should not need a license to fish a private pond on private property...and how about those tax assessments? As soon as it cools off a bit I will be fishing!!!!...

Re: Pond Rehab and Stocking

So, I find it odd that a permit is needed to stock fish on your own property, as well as needing a licences to fish a private pond on private property....Yes, yes, that pond may be attched to public rivers through streams, but i don't give a shit..private property should be just that, private.....l...

Re: Columbia Dam removal

Question for Rusty Spinner if he sees this.... when these types of dams are removed, is the "lake" area dug out prior to removal to prevent all the crap build-up, silt and otherwise, from washing downstream? If the dam was not there all that crap build-up and silt would have washed downstream on it...

Re: Epic fight with lake trout in a squall

I didn't notice until today the difference in the far shoreline between the first and last photos I posted of this fight. It was pouring in that first shot, but by the final shot when we had hail added to the mix, it was near Biblical rain/hail. The far shoreline is just a darker line in the photo ...

Re: Low water/flow tactics

Too bad Round Valley Rez wasn't designed for deep, cold-water discharges. We could have had a nice little mini-tailwater outlet for a few miles. I heard the water level is down in RV, can anyone confirm? Yes, RV is very low. I believe its either for dam repairs or inspections. Its definitely not fo...

Re: Water Temps

I'm sure the brief break in the heat Saturday will have the "sports" out trying to hammer the trout that have concentrated into the spring seep areas. Many of those “sports” as you call them don’t have a clue what a spring seep area is, unless it is within 20 foot of the nearest bridge or dam. :D

Re: Carp on a fly-rod popper

Was throwing a popper last night on Deal Lake and wound up catching a heavy carp. Was like catching a cross between a striper and an albie, bull dogging and some knuckle busting runs. Great fun - have never done that before. There was a squirrel nearby eating some berrIes on an overhanging tree...I...
