Tippets: Techniques for Fishing Low Water, Lahontan Cutthroat Populations Impacted by Drought, A Bird Goes Fishing

  • After a spring and summer of drought conditions across much of the country, Tom Rosenbauer focuses this week’s Orvis Podcast on techniques for fishing in low water.
  • Lahontan Cutthroat Trout populations are being seriously impacted by the drought and wildfires. But Trout Unlimited projects are keeping a monitoring eye and “Hopefully our long history of collaborative restoration and continued involvement in these recently-burned watersheds will give the fish a fighting chance,” say John Zablocki and Helen Neville, of the TU Lahontan Cutthroat Trout Conservation Team, “They’ll need it now more than ever.”
  • If the usage of tools is measurement of intelligence, then this green heron has it in spades as it baits fish close with a piece of bread.
