    Best and cheapest usually do not go with each other when it comes to fishing electronics. So, if your primarily need/use is down and side scan vs 2d, the Lowrance TI2 with a Active Imaging 2n1 (or...

    Re: Salmon or Steelhead found in lakes?

    I know kokanee were planted in San Luis a long time ago but they never had a chance to survive due to the stripers enjoying the dfg provided snack.

    Re: First time trolling - spinning reel?

    BrotherWilliams, on post 32, you stated that you are “mostly a trout guy and would love to catch a salmon.” Are you saying you have never caught a river salmon??

    Re: First time trolling - spinning reel?

    Re: Braided Line Help

    Panther, good luck in your experimentation. Lots of advice given already, you just have to figure out what works for you.

    Re: West Coaster 152 by Klamath recall

    I would be upset too. You bought the boat because of its layout and now that layout has changed due to Klamath making a mistake or not keeping up with the CG regs.

    The plants lately at Courtright and Wishon should ensure some good fishing and some beautiful trout for the next two weeks and when the road re-opens up next spring.
  21. Re: Courtright Reservoir still popping for bows

    Thanks for the report. Lots of fish over by the dam. This might be the last weekend up there with snow coming next week.

    Re: men are happier people

    Pretty true. Forgot one thing, going to the bathroom- women ask if any other women need to go and often leave in a pack. If a guy did this, he's just plain weird.
