  • Planning a saltwater trip can be overwhelming, especially if it’s your first time fishing flats. However Rod Hamilton has done some research for you and presents some great strategies for do-it-yourself bonefishing. “Nothing replaces time on the water and most of the early lessons are going to result in fishless days, but let me see if I can ease the pain and help shorten the learning curve with some basic strategies for the DIY fisherman,” he writes.
  • Biologists are studying summer run steelhead in the Snake River to learn more about their movement patterns. “Our goal with those fish is to primarily understand where the fish spend the winter,” says Chris Caudill, an assistant professor in the University of Idaho’s College of Natural Resources. “A relatively large portion of them do spend time in the Columbia and Snake mainstems and move into tributaries in the spring.” Via Idaho Statesman.
