    Two Columbia long-sleeve fishing shirts of identical make/model. Lightweight ripstop nylon, omnishade. Button down tabs. Loops and tabs to roll up sleeves. Size large (I'd say good for folks 6' to 6'2" and in the roughly 175-200 lbs range). Both lightly used and in excellent condition. The...

    Went out to a basin lake that fished well last spring according to friends. 57 degrees water temperature. No bugs on the lake. No fish seen or hooked. It looked like the entire lake was just dead....not dead as in fishing and not catching....but dead. I don't know where the 4000 fish shown on...

    The Columbia National Wildlife Refuge is beautiful if you're into things like geological ice age flood events. Which, by the way, the IAFI.ORG is having their annual meeting in Soap Lake (complete with dancing Soap Lake boys) this coming weekend. You can see how some of this refuge is...

    Just reading about the 2017 upper Columbia/Snake rivers steelhead forecast; the total forecast is only 130,700 the lowest in 35 years. Of even more concern is the "B" which has a forecast of 6,300 (only 1,100 wild) and 2,000 needed for hatchery brood stock. A discouraging continuing decline...

    Seems some much needed, yet controversial, changes on the way. I support a lot of what they're going to do, but it's far from perfect. I don't think "hatcheries are bad, mmmkay" as a blanket statement works. Every individual hatchery, and tributary they support, has its own unique pros and...

    I hoped to try turkey hunting earlier this year, adn bought this jacket from Sports Authority when they were still around. I've lost a few pounds and the jacket is a little too big for me; it's an XL that runs on the larger side of XL, and I run on the smaller side of XL, or a large L. I...
