By Keith Whitcomb Jr., Bennington Banner, Vt. Jul. 19--ARLINGTON -- Efforts to improve the fish population in the Batten Kill seem to be working, according to Kenneth Cox, a state fisheries biologist. A fish census was taken Thursday about 1,000 yards upstream from where the Green River flows into the Batten Kill. According to last year's fish census, the population of small to mid-sized trout in one section of the Batten Kill rose 600 percent, said Cynthia Browning, executive...

SALMON have taken advantage of summer flood conditions to move well upstream in both the River Usk and River Wye. Grant Holmes caught his first salmon, a 15lb fish that rose to a fly, when he fished the Glanwye beat and two other anglers caught fish here. Other stretches of the Wye where salmon were landed included the Rocks, Gromain and Golden Mile beats. River Usk salmon have been going over the weir at Brecon and several fish have been caught at Talybont. Cardiff Reservoirs Fly...

It seems our busy senators can find all kinds of ways to divert taxpayer dollars to some esoteric project that should be stamped as an example of federal waste and abuse. The BDN reported that they have arm-wrestled a $456,680 grant from NOAA so that the Maine Department of Marine Resources can develop and implement a conservation plan for preserving a number of fish species.

By DAMON TATUMDAMON TATEM BEACH, PIER AND BRIDGE FISHING Corolla to Coquina Beach Pier anglers in Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head should land fair numbers of mixed small bottom fish just about every day when the water inshore is somewhat dirty. Most of these small spot, croaker, pigfish and sea mullet should be taken on small No. 4 to 6 hooks, baited with bloodworms or fresh shrimp. The best action will be on the incoming and high tide when these fish move close inshore along the beach...

WASKISH, Minn. _ Walleye action was beginning to slow from the torrid pace anglers had experienced since the May 10 fishing opener, but Upper Red Lake still was kicking out fish at a pretty good clip for late June, Tyler Brasel said. That would turn out to be an understatement. A fishing guide on Upper Red Lake, Brasel, 22, would rank among the most fanatical anglers in northern Minnesota if such a category existed. He and his parents, Steve and Tammy Brasel, pulled stakes from their home...

By ART HOLDEN By ART HOLDEN Daily Record Outdoor Editor Nighttime, is the right time. It's not Texas, or Florida, where the daytime sun can exact a toll on fish and fishermen alike, but a trick those southern-state anglers use to catch summertime bass is just as effective north of the Mason Dixon line as it is south of it -- nighttime fishing for bass. When water temperatures rise (79 degrees this week at Nimisila Reservoir), switching to nighttime bassing is something you may want...

By LEE TOLLIVER By Lee Tolliver The Virginian-Pilot Bryan Whitehorne's first offshore fishing adventure provided a lot of experiences. Whitehorne, 18, of Virginia Beach , caught his first billfish on a recent trip out of Oregon Inlet. "It was awesome," the Tidewater Community College sophomore said of catching a white marlin. "A once-in-a-lifetime experience." But it wasn't all sunshine and happiness. Whitehorne's second time in the fighting chair provided a harsh lesson about...

By Jenny Haworth Environment Correspondent NEW laws could see anglers and landowners who put alien fish species into lochs and rivers fined up to GBP 1,000. The Scottish Government legislation aims to provide greater protection to our native freshwater fish life.
