    Aquatic Invasive Species permit for out of state vessels

    What is up with your government Washington? I understand the purpose of the permit for freshwater but not for saltwater and definitely not for a boat on a trailer on the Interstate just passing through that will never touch WA waters. Any lawyers got an opinion on if it is legal to force...

    Quick Afternoon Out

    With the lack of fishing reports lately, thought I would give a report on a short float on the home water Saturday after skiing in the morning. Roped a few nice ones below, I thought mine was prettier, no doubt hers was larger and put quite a bend on the 5 weight, even had to give chase in the...

    NFR How did this explode? Any electricians out there?

    So we came back from vacation Saturday and the plugs weren't working in my boys' bedroom. Then we found this outside the house along their wall. The breaker in the garage was tripped. Did a slug climb in it and explode? Was the plug faulty? Scary. Glad my house didn't burn down.

    This is just a useless fishing report. The weather is in the high 50's. No wind to speak of and clear skies. Drove up to where the Beaverhead is open at.

It also looked like the people before me used eggs. They can clean out a hole pretty quick that way. There is no fly only water here that I...
