Re: Any fish in the Kings River near Reedley?

Re: How do you weigh a fish?

An alternative method is to use a measuring tape and use this formula:


WEIGHT= 20 x (12²) / 740
WEIGHT= 20 x 144 / 740
WEIGHT= 2880 / 740

Re: Fluro tippits in freshwater?

Re: Closest place to Oklahoma for some steelhead ?

I'll try to explain it from a different perspective. It's a process thing. Steelhead either are there, or they aren't. When they are present, they may or may not want to play. The conditions may...

Re: What weight fly rod

My two cents, I hooked a 35 lb king on the Navarro river at its lowest flow one late October about 30 years ago. I was hoping to hook a steelhead and I reasoned the river was flowing about 30 cfs...

Re: Chasing the Ozy Salmon.

Congregating seals have heralded the return of salmon and steelhead since I can remember. They are the least of our concern. The big threats are dams and clearcutting the tribs.
