Tippets: Lake Trout on Tenkara, Sol Duc Wild Steelhead, Bobbers (or Indicators), Enlarging Shasta Dam
- It is never too late for a 2011 retrospective especially if it is of the quality expected from Chris Hunt at Eat Moore Brook Trout—and includes catching a lake trout on a tenkura rod.
- The first wild steelhead management zone has been created on Washington’s Sol Duc River. The purpose: minimize contact between wild steelhead and hatchery fish, protecting the genetic stock.
- It is a touchy topic among the fly-fishing crowd but that does not stop Lefty Ray Chapa from channeling his inner Norman Maclean and discussing the use of bobbers, “commonly referred to as indicators” by fly fishers.
- A proposed 18.5 feet addition to the Shasta Dam in California will not only improve the California water situation (albeit marginally) but will also help spawning salmon and steelhead, says one report.
