A much needed outing

Therapeutic. That's what today's kayak fishing trip was. I didn't tear them up. I only caught five fish. I had a run in with a pair of inconsiderate jerks who decided to fish on top of me. I felt I needed to stay within sight of the launch. I only had an hour and a half to fish. No matter. I needed to get out today after a little bout with walking pneumonia.

A River Runs Through It

Ok, so I took some liberties with the title, but like the movie, I’m haunted by waters. I want to know what’s around the next bend in the mangroves, that hidden pond in the back country, or up the river I used to fish when I was a younger man. So when my buddy Walt called me and said “Let’s go see if they are biting up the river”, I jumped at the chance. This time of year the snook head up the rivers in search of warmer water, so this would be a perfect opportunity to see how well they are making a comeback after our terrible winter of a few years ago.

The Act Of Kayak Fishing

I ended up having a great evening on the creek last Friday. The water levels were good and the water itself was fresh, not stagnant as it occasionally gets towards the end of summer. There was the slightest telltale hint of that crisp autumn air that seems to re-energize after a few weeks of summer's dog days. I caught a few bluegill on my fly rod and a little fatty of a spotted bass.

Ice, Snow, Kayaks, and Smallmouth Bass

What do these four things have in common? Well...I don't know because i'm just a dumb kayak fisherman...not a philosopher  

Thanks to a fellow winco's pro-staffer I located a "new to me" warm water discharge and hit the Susquehanna River this past Saturday in search of smallmouth bass.

Black Friday Kayak Bass

A couple fishing buddies and I decided to hit the water yesterday for some early winter smallmouth fishing on the Susquehanna River. We converged on the Susquehanna at about 7 a.m. prepared to fish a known wintering area that both Jeff and I had fished in the past. While other folks were standing in line outside their local "big box" store, we were unpacking our gear on the riverbank and dawned our cold weather gear for a day of fishing.

Smallmouth, wintering hole smack down

It was a great day of fishing with enough action to keep me warm even with the air temps dipping into the low 40's. The highlight of the trip was a 20" fat fall bronze back. Despite the cold water, the fish made several leaps and even cleared the water once before I could bring the fish to hand. The fish was a fitting exclamation to an action filled late fall trip.

Fall nookie is better than none!

Anglers can look forward to one of the best returns of chinook salmon in several years when the fall fishing season gets under way Aug. 1 on the Columbia River.

Fisheries managers are forecasting a return of 655,000 adult fall chinook this year, which is up from a return of 429,000 chinook last year. If the run materializes as expected, it would be the largest fall chinook return since 2004.

If it's a little peace you're after, you could do worse than to go flatwater canoeing or kayaking in the fall.
