Fishing: Roger’s Remarks for Sept. 13

It’s easy to get in a rut and expect things at the old fishing hole to remain the same each season. You know, like when the water levels should come up and stabilize, and you know just exactly where the structure is located and the fish are hanging. You even know what exact plug they should hit.

Fishing: Roger’s Remarks for Sept. 6

Talking to another old salt the other day about the many trips we’ve experienced, both good and bad, it occurred to me that it took a lot of crazy, stupid mistakes to finally get ”smart.” On second thought, I should actually say “smarter” because I continue to pull some new doozies at times. Here are a few of my best, but be assured I have more.

Fishing: Roger’s Remarks for Aug. 31

Delta fishermen just dodged another bullet aimed at their fishery. A petition to change bass and striper limits to a point where advocates hoped the species would be eliminated was withdrawn after massive pushback from Delta fishing interests.

Fishing: Roger’s Remarks for Aug. 16

It’s remarkable how seemingly small decisions can turn into exciting adventures. The latest began when I left work Friday and concluded I would go striper fishing at San Luis Reservoir the next day. I called up Meng Xyong, co-founder of Fishaholics, to see if he could go.

Fishing: Roger’s Remarks for July 26

It’s going to be a “shock and awe” kind of experience for some boaters trying to launch at San Luis State Park Recreation Area beginning Monday. That’s when the new ban on noncompliant two-stroke engines starts – keeping many anglers, recreational boaters and PWCs that don’t meet the Bureau of Reclamation standards from using the reservoir, Forebay or Los Banos Creek from now on!
