Tips on the best fall trout food

While some folks think that fishing for trout is best in the spring, I am of the opinion that the best time to go fishing is whenever you can. Just like bears preparing for hibernation, fish often go on a fall feeding binge to fatten up so they can survive the coming winter. Thus fall can be a great time to catch monster trout.

Art of teaching beginners to shoot

Over lunch the other day, some friends amd I were discussing the best way to teach a beginner to shoot. We found ourselves in unanimous agreement that the best firearm to learn to shoot with is the 22 caliber single shot rifle with traditional iron sights. There are a host of 22 s out there ranging from the simple single shot model to tube fed 22s, lever action saddle guns, slide action gallery guns and the ubiquitous Ruger rotary action 10-22. All can be fine guns and all have their strong points. For my money however, nothing is better than ...

One more catch for the road

We weren't in much of a hurry Saturday, so we stood at the tailgate of Nate's truck and retold the highlights of seven years worth of fly fishing trips. Whenever we've been together lately it's been like this. Our memories are told with increased vigor and embellishment as my move nears.

Hunting’s opening day in Sierra set for Sept. 28

Not long ago I heard a story about a school teacher in Montana who asked students on a quiz to name the four seasons. The most common answer she got was Trout Season, Deer Season, Elk Season, and Duck Season. That's sort of the way my mind works too. Opening Day of both deer season and bear season for the Sierra Nevada Mountains is Saturday, Sept. 28. Deer season runs six weeks until Nov. 3, while bear season lasts until Dec. 29.

Keeping pace with change of seasons

With the summer-like conditions we've been having lately, the inexperienced angler tends to believe that the fishing conditions are the same as the summer. After all, the days are just as hot and the waterways are as busy as any other summer day.
