Aside from winter ice fishing, what species are you fisherman going after this year as we enter the warm weather season Question

Doesn't matter if your're a fresh water guy or salt water. (Do you use a boat, tackle choice, artificials or live bait?).   As a boater I'm after lake trout/salmon with trolling lures and live minnows. Also smallmouth bass with hard and soft artificials.  I use bottom bouncers weights for both species.

Our fly fishing club is heading to Salida to fish the Arkansas on 4/20 and then off to the Green river below Flaming Gorge for 4 days of fishing - all for trout on a fly rod

I'm sure you can't bounce wait for that trip!  Fly fishing for trout remains my all-time favorite fishing sport.  Wish I now had the trout water resouces close-by like I once had in PA. Tied all my flies myself including streamers, nymphs, wets and drys.  Fly fishing is a very addicting sport.  Frustrating Mad too when the trout are rising to anything but what's in your fly box.  Even more frustrating when size matters.

Good luck matching the hatch and let us know how you do when you return. Smile

my friend brought his boat over thrusday and we stripped it out ( old john boat ) got the foam all dried, new wood going down this thursday, replacing all the ropes and straps, got the 25 hp eveinrude running nicely. I think the carb needs rebuilt, but we'll chance it and give it a try out on the lake Shocked

We like to use kastmaster lures for trout and walleye. I've also caught bass on the  same lure, so they are not to picky. Cat fish to!

I fish from the bank. Live on a Trout Stream so yes Rainbow Trout. I like fishing for Redhorse Suckers, Catfish and Crappie.

ElkFever use to live in Salida, use to be able to Bait Fish by where I lived but hear it has changed.

Sounds like the boat is going through a needed overhaul...just like I had to do a few years ago.  If your 25 hp is a two stroke and has some age to it, you might want to also check gaskets.  With serious starting and running problems, my 1993 two-stroke 15 h.p.Evenrude went through a rebuild last year.  A major gasket between the cylinders was deteriorated and leaking cooling water into the cylinders.  I also had the electrical power pack replaced.  It cost me about $400 parts/labor to have a professional do it, but it literally runs like new now.

Always fly fishing for trout. The Arkansas River runs through my town, so I fish it a lot. I also like all the local creeks. They keep me in the same places I hunt and that's a good thing.

Yep, it is the 2 stroke made in 1982! No water in the cylinders, runs great, just has that lag when you give it trottle, like its choked off and not opening up all of the way. A carb kit is only $16 so I am going to have my friend buy that later on so we can take it apart and rebuild it. Probably could use some new jets for higher elevation as well. Hell, now that I mentioned that, that's probably the choked off problem with it no revving up quickly, needs more air/fuel for the 7300 ft elevation.

Leadhead chartreuse jigs with maribou tails and Rapala jigging lures when fishing from shore. I have even caught walleye and saugeye with yellow woolybuggers on the Yellowstone with a flyrod and sinking line.

Living in central Florida there is only one ……..Bass.

    The St John`s river is just a stone`s throw from my house.   Fish during the week as the weekends 
      it`s loaded with every type of boat know to man kind.   

    Going to Lake Okeechobee the first week in May.   Have fished it many times for fun and club 
         Tourney`s.   Now, there`s a Bass lake.  
   
   Fish most of the lake systems around central Fl.   Mostly use 'plastics.'  Spinner baits in pad fields.
     Everybody has certain baits they like and which produce.  Course, lots of folks use shiners .

    Bass fishing is year round and if your lucky and retired,  and have a bass boat, life is really good.

My friends have asked to fish for Grouper on our next salt trip. I have not gone for this fish, yet.

I tend to be a bobber watcher on a bank or a pier if left alone to my own devices.

My summer home has Redfish, Black Drum, Trout and Flounder in abundance. We have a State season and a Federal season for Red Snapper. There are many other species but these are the primary focus species. I was surprised to learn the fresh water options are extremely good around here too. Lakes have White Bass and Striped Bass. The creek next to my house has Talapia and the pond down the street has Largemouth Bass. I would rather fish than anything and I prefer fishing from the boat.

Pan-fish are a LOT of fun to battle if you use ultra-light gear.  I'll load-up my 5 foot rod with 2 lb. Test and my 5 1/2  footer with 4 lb. Test.

A 7 lb Bass where you live is considered a big Bass.  Hope you do the catch and release thing.

You're right Dry Powder.   Largemouths grow MUCH slower up here in the colder Northeast.  A 7 lb. largemouth up here will be older than a 7 lb. Largemouth down your way.  
Personal best smallmouth for me is 5 lbs.
I release all my bass.  Freshwater bass are great sport fish, but not the best for eating.  I find them a little on the strong-tasting side.

Channel Cat, smallmouth bass, cutthroat & rainbow trout, and then steelhead this fall.
My absolute favorite is fly fishing for Cutthroat, I love watching them take it off the top when they are taking dry flies well.

Cleaning fish (trout especially) was always a ritualistic chore in our family after walking the stream banks all day.  The trimmings were thrown in the garden as fertilizer and the fish in the freezer.  If I lived a little closer to you I would have gladly taken that mess off your hands! Smile

Superior sure has its share of great trout fishing tribs.  I only know of one, the Brule River, from others that have fly fished it for the hatches.

The Brule is a great river. I spend a lot of time on it in the fall. Spring time I spend on MN’s north shore where I live. Heading out as soon as I finish typing. Massachusetts eh? I grew up on the South Shore in Marshfield. Fished for everything that swam in the inshore waters.

Do the trout waters you fish have the cats and smallmouths also, or do you go elsewhere for them Question

No, I fish for catfish in the Snake River, smallmouth in the Snake River and Main Clearwater River, and the Cutthroat and Rainbows in the Northfork of the Clearwater, Kelly Creek, Southfork of the Clearwater, Lochsa, and Selway.
The Snake River and Clearwater are right out my front door (Lewiston is at their confluence), all the others except the Northfork are 2 hours away, and the Northfork is 3 hours away.  My favorite thing to do in the whole world is to spend a week camping and fly-fishing on the Northfork.
Here is a pic of the Northfork, hard to find better scenery and the fishing is outstanding.  Kelly Creek feeds into this and is also great fly-fishing.  Both are artificial single barbless hook only.  The Northfork you can keep two fish a day, cutthroat have to be over 14" and any size rainbow.  Most just release them.  Kelly Creek has the same restrictions except it is strictly catch and release.

I just typed a big response and somehow lost it all.
It is beautiful country.  The Lochsa is getting to be pretty good fishing since they went to catch and release above whatever milepost it is, I can't remember off the top of my head.  Just above 3 Rivers a ways.  It still doesn't rival Kelly Creek and the Northfork, but its getting close.
When you make it to Kelly Creek, make sure to try some fishing in Black Canyon and the main river below Kelly Forks Ranger Station.  I actually prefer the main river, you can get away from some of the other fisherman a little easier.  We like to camp around the Bungalow, but will camp up near Cold Springs sometimes too.
In late August / early September the kokanee are spawning and run up the main Northfork.  They are a very red color and fun to see.  The fishing is a bit slower that time of year, but seem to catch bigger fish.  I haven't been up there that late in years, as I'm archery elk hunting in September.
Avoid the week of the 4th of July and the week right after.  It is a zoo during the week of the 4th and it takes another week for the fishing to get better again after they were all poked in the lip by all the people fishing.

What am I fishing for? Any fish that is dumb enough to bite my lure or baited hook.

I first became interested in fishing when I was probably around 9 years old.  I didn't care what I caught so long as I caught something.  That's a great attitude to hang onto. Wink
