  2. Anyone fished the Adams river mouth?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I recently came across this video, and got interested in fly fishing the mouth of the Adams with an egg pattern for rainbows. I am wondering though, when using egg patterns, if you should use an indicator on a 9ft leader and floating line or use it without an indicator. It would also be...

    Sport fishing column for August 23 to 30, 2010 One of my favorite fish to pursue is the desert trout. Though not prolific in numbers, like the rainbows in our high catch lakes, I find these fish to be well worth the time and study it takes to master them. This particular strain of...

    Sport fishing column for August 9 to 16, 2010 With another drowning in the Vedder River this past week, I feel some safe wading tips are in order. Neoprene waders fill with water and all others fill with air, when an angler takes a tumble. This makes regaining stability difficult...
