Umpqua Hook Review in our February '12 Issue

The "Gearhead" column in our February 2012 issue presents a review of Umpqua's U-series of lower-cost hooks. Although it correctly identified the package pricing as ranging between $5.75 to $6.75, the quantity of hooks per package is actually 50, not the 25 noted in the text. The differenc...

Great suggestion, Ken. My impression, too, is that Buffalo Bill's is one of the first brewpubs in California -- if, in fact, not THE first.

Rivers in Siskiyou County to be Closed to Angling?

Tom Chandler at the Trout Undergound tells us that fishing access in Siskiyou County is under threat from the County's Board of Supervisors. Seems like a joke, but it ain't!

Kevin, I think your buddy may be out of luck. I'm not aware of any significant striper fishery in Southern California. He might want to instead schedule some time in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. Initial contacts could include Kiene's Fly Shop in Sacramento (http://www.kiene.com) or Fish F...

Temo, I have the T3 tip flex in a 5-weight. I like it. In fact, I had never considered buying a T3 until a float trip on the Snake several years ago, where the guides -- Orvis-endorsed -- had it as their go-to rod. I pounded the banks all day long with weighted streamers and was impressed with how e...

FYI, a friend of mine fished the lower Owens last weekend and came across extraordinary quantities of New Zealand mud snails. If you're fishing infected waters, please be sure to clean and treat your wading gear so that these molluscs aren't tranferred to other streams in California. Recommendations...
