  • Winter Fungal Disease of Fish and Fish Eggs

    Winter Fungal Disease of Fish and Fish Eggs

    As the weather cools, and many outdoors enthusiasts begin to put away their boats for winter, some are cashing in on the solitude and lower fishing pressure on their favorite lake. But as their catch rates increase, so do their chances of catching some fish that may be a bit unsightly. Many anglers send in photos to fisheries biologists and the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission's Facebook page this time of year with bass or crappie that look like they've got a bad case of acne.

  • Water Rising | Less room for error this winter on San Joaquin River

    Water Rising | Less room for error this winter on San Joaquin River

    Last winter, a mostly empty New Melones Lake swallowed up torrents of water that otherwise would have had to be dumped into a lower watershed that already was flooding. Without all of that room at New Melones, the damage along the lower San Joaquin River and in the Delta could have been much worse

  • McCloud River Redband Rescue and Recovery

    McCloud River Redband Rescue and Recovery

    The true, pure strain McCloud River redband trout were hit especially hard by the California drought. The creeks that hold pure strain McCloud redband are disconnected from the mainstem McCloud River. These small creeks well up from springs and only flow for a mile or two before going sub-surface again. Due to the nature of the habitats and how they swell with the spring runoff then dry up and become disconnected in the summer, there is always some level of mortality on a few of these creeks. However, in 2013, DFW biologists noticed conditions were reaching critical levels for fish in a large portion of the available habitat. In late summer, dissolved oxygen levels were getting low and temperatures were rising. In the winter, the small creeks are subject to freezing if the water levels and flow are too low. After careful consideration, the hard decision was made to bring some of these fish into captivity to reduce mortality and potentially lose important meta populations in the wild.

  • Big Blue Cats Time

    Big Blue Cats Time

    Channel, flathead and blue catfish. Big channel catfish are usually caught in the Choctawhatchee River in late May through early July, and October into November if the water stays warm. Small cats are caught year-round, but expect the bite to slow when it is cold. Work the Alabama line south to Choctawhatchee Bay, and around the mouth of Holmes Creek and other tributaries. Most of the larger catfish are found in the northern portion of the river, but some will be found throughout the river within deep bends and holes that contain large woody debris. Fish live bream on the bottom for flatheads up to 30 pounds, and try stink baits or night crawlers on the bottom for channels.

    Spokane Bass Club - Pend Oreille River

    Our September tournament was held on the Pend Oreille River out of Morton Slough. The cool fall temperatures should have made the fishing excellent, but the results did not show it. Most of the field reported catching numerous fish, but the big fish eluded us and didn't make it to the scales.

  • Poor Outlook for Columbia River Salmon Says NOAA Studies

    Poor Outlook for Columbia River Salmon Says NOAA Studies

    Ocean conditions for salmon headed to sea this year are very poor, according to recent NOAA Fisheries research surveys, and have a high likelihood of depressing salmon returns to the Columbia River in the next few years.

  • Feather River Salmon Spawning Restoration Project Video

    Feather River Salmon Spawning Restoration Project Video

    Last winter’s high river flows washed much of the gravel in the area downstream. Adult salmon need clean spawning gravel to dig their nests, called “redds,” where they lay their eggs.

  • Feather River Salmon Spawning Restoration Project

    Feather River Salmon Spawning Restoration Project

    In anticipation of salmon spawning season this fall, we placed 5,000 cubic yards of gravel in key salmon spawning areas of the Feather River in Oroville near the Feather River Fish Hatchery. Last winter’s high river flows washed much of the gravel in the area downstream. Adult salmon need clean spawning gravel to dig their nests, called “redds,” where they lay their eggs. This project improves and increases the spawning habitat available to the salmon, in an effort to boost salmon population.
