Fishing Report

There's a tree in my neighborhood that's been my springtime indicator for the past 20 years. It's an almond tree that I glance at every morning on my way to work, especially this time of year. Many old-time fishermen will tell you that you can tell when springtime fishing is here by the blossoming of the local almond trees. The one in my neighborhood has yet to blossom but it's close. I've learned over the years that if I was to wait for the weather to tell me when spring is here, I would have ...

Fishing Report

If you've never witnessed a lake being planted with trout, it's definitely a sight to see.

The driver then gets out, opens a valve at the rear or side of the truck, and releases all the fish into the lake. This of course, causes just about every angler in sight to gravitate towards where the fish are being released. One would think that the last thing ...
