Fishing Report

A lot of anglers are waiting in anticipation for the weather to clear up before they go fishing. What most don't know is that they're most likely missing out on an opportunity to have one of the best fishing days of the year. As bad as it may look outside right now, the fish have already started to seek out food and have begun to make their way towards their spring spawning areas. This time of year is strange in that, most of our senses are telling us to stay home, while the fish's senses are telling ...

Bear Grease Is Nature’s Icing

If we put our minds to it, we could learn a lot from the Native Americans who preceded the white man as masters of North America. In reading about the Plains Indians who followed the bison herds it seems that the Indians utilized almost every part of the buffalo upon which they depended for their livelihood. They ate fresh meat and then also preserved meat by drying it in the sun and by smoking it over fires. They prepared a high energy food they called pemmican by mixing buffalo fat with herbs and dried berries. Of course the Plains Indians ...

Fishing Report

I'm sure all of you are excited about the rain we've been getting this winter season. I've been keeping an eye on lake levels of our local lakes and they've all been rising. A majority of our smaller lakes are near full, while our bigger lakes like New Melones and Don Pedro are still below being fully operational. Fortunately we still have plenty of time for more rain and snowmelt runoff. Whenever water levels increase rapidly, it's important to be careful while boating. Everything that's been washed up onto shore is now floating in ...
