I was out on the DFW stocking website and noticed that they plan to stock New Melones next week. It would be my guess that they will put half in at Glory Hole and the rest at the launch ramp below the Highway 49 Bridge. They never tell you what day, but it would be my guess that if you went out Wednesday or Friday you might have a good chance of fish. I’ll probably hit the launch ramp on Wednesday.

We’re doing the “Design to Sell” thing at our house, so my fishing time is limited, but I try to get out at least once a week so I have...

Ethics of Shooting Birds on the Water or the Ground?

Question: Is it lawful to shoot a bird that is on the water, or if I’m field hunting, to shoot a bird that is standing on the ground? I do not consider it sporting, but I was party to a group of hunters that took part in the above actions. Just curious what the official word is on this. (Nick V.)

Answer: It’s not illegal, but it’s certainly not sporting as it violates the Fair Chase Principle. “Fair chase” is the ethical, sportsman-like, lawful pursuit and taking of any free-rangi...

I’m back. I took a week off for Christmas, if you will. I hope everyone had a nice Christmas and got all the fishing gear you wanted. Just an FYI, I write these the week before the week of the Friday they appear. Seems like I’m always behind, but that’s the way of the newspaper business.

We’ve had some big storms, got a lot of water, and a good amount of snow (although we need a lot more) in the mountains.

On Thursday, Dec. 18, I was going fishing no matter what. OK, we were between storms and you have to grab fishing time when you...

This week marks the winter solstice and the shortest day of the year. The sun is low in the sky (if we see it at all) and nightfall comes early. It’s often cold, and sometimes wet, so it’s easy to talk ourselves out of going outside to play or exercise. But, it’s important that we take good care of ourselves this time of year, and the great outdoors can help with that. We just have to find motivation, so here are 10 good reasons to go outside in winter.

1. You burn more calories outdoors in the winter. There is a phenomenon known...

Question: A friend and I recently had a situation where we found pig tracks at one of the areas where we like to duck hunt. We both found it a little unnerving to be walking in knee to waist high grass armed with only bird shot if a pig were to charge. The area where we are hunting doesn’t explicitly prohibit handguns. We are wondering if California law allows us to carry a handgun, not as a method of take but rather for defense while hunting waterfowl. I noticed the answer to the question on sidearms while hunting upland game and... [Read more]

I had so much fun chasing that “tree stump” and since I found a new pink Kastmaster in one of my backup tackle boxes (I have several), I thought I’d wander out to Lake Camanche North Shore on Friday (that would be Black Friday). Besides, who wants to fight all the mall crowds?

I decided to sleep in (6:00 instead of 5:15) and got out to the lake around 9 a.m. Didn’t see any reason to rush, the fish would be there or they wouldn’t. I picked up right where I left off Monday with one rod out with rainbow Power Bait and a little Pro-Cure...
