Dead Drifting, Not Jerking

Last February accounted for more 20” river smallmouth in my trip report log than any month so far this year. I expect December to beat it. The pattern that works for so many big river smallmouth? To tell you “suspending jerkbaits over ledge trenches” would only tell you about 30% of the story. The other 70% - the important part - is how long between jerks. To be honest, unless the water is fairly stained, the jerks are inconsequential.

Sanity Day

I’ve been busy. Really busy, just like everyone else. It came to my attention recently that my son and I haven’t been out in our kayaks nearly enough this summer and I needed to schedule a Sanity Day on the Stones River. Mission: Get onto some fish together. Secondary Mission: To see my teenage son get at least one big goofy grin across his face.

Bass On The Road

When the opportunity came to guide a film crew on a freshwater river fishing expedition, the River Stalkers crew jumped at the chance. Stewart Venable, Eric Hughes, and I are all admitted river fishing addicts who love making converts of non-river fisherman. Bob Bramblet and Jim Van Pelt are accomplished saltwater anglers who wanted to pit their skills against some of our hard-fighting river species.

River Fishing Kayak Basics

For most of the general population, talk of a river boat conjures up images of a coal-fired paddle wheeler lumbering along the Mississippi River. For the anglers who chase fish in the swirling water of their local flow, a river boat is a totally different critter.

Explore Those Small Creeks

Living in Southwest Nebraska for the last 31 years has provided me with some incredible outdoor experiences. The arid climate still passes through its four seasons, with winter freezing most lake surfaces which makes for some dandy ice fishing. For those who love to fish from a kayak, this makes for a long winter if there is no open water. This is where a little exploring and creativity come to play...

Anchoring A Precautionary Tale

Last Saturday was a balmy 44° and the rivers were running just below the 75th CFS percentile, so I decided that with the forecast full moon it would be a good day to head to a spot on the East Fork of the Stones I'd been meaning to explore.

The Basics on How to Read Whitewater

The power of water can be intimidating, especially fast moving whitewater. Humans tend to fear what we don’t understand and when we first come to a swiftly flowing river it appears chaotic and scary because we don’t yet understand the flow of the currents. Once we begin to learn and recognize that currents are made up of certain staple features such as eddies, eddy lines, downstream Vs, rocks, waves and hydraulics pathways begin to open up amid the chaos. Even the scariest rapids are made up of these staple features. Recognizing the best path through a rapid boosts your confidence and helps you discern if your skills are up to running the line.
