PLYMOUTH - A restoration project intended to make Red Brook's spawning beds more accessible to fish populations resumes this week with the removal of New Way Dam. The project began with the removal of Robbins Dike in 2006. It is expected to be completed next summer with the dismantling of two other structures that control water flow and dredging to remove fill from wetlands. Red Brook, a five-mile stream on the Wareham-Plymouth border, runs from White Island Pond to Buttermilk Bay and is...

By Bob Frye, The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Aug. 3--You needn't be a bushwhacking pioneer to drive from Pittsburgh to Washington. A well-established network of roads and highways will get you there. Likewise, if you want to hike from Laurel Summit State Park to the overlook at Wolf Rocks, there's a blazed trail to follow. But what if you want to float from, say, Apollo to Blairsville? It turns out there's a trail for that, too. The Kiski-Conemaugh River Water Trail -- which...

By Joe Knight, The Leader-Telegram, Eau Claire, Wis. Aug. 1--NEW AUBURN -- A house wren was chattering somewhere outside the super-size screen porch behind Jim Dahl's rural New Auburn home. It likely is the wren that took over the bluebird house and filled it with sticks. You might have thought he would object, as he is the former county coordinator of the Bluebird Restoration Association of Wisconsin, but now he didn't mind. Dahl has been spending most of his time on the porch,...

I learned the basics of line and tackle fishing from my late uncle Oscar Portuondo, first in Cuba and then in Miami, where my husband and I often joined him at his favorite fishing spots on the bay side of Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park or the old Rickenbacker Causeway Bridge. My uncle was a man of the tropical sea, but I know he would have found great joy in the sweet, cold-water bounty of the Delaware River Valley in Pennsylvania, where I own a small vacation home. This beautiful...

By Cumberland Times News, Md. Jul. 13--Hi Mike, This is in reference to the March 23 article "Wants trout answers." That was another appeal to Gov. O'Malley and or DNR Fisheries Division to address ongoing concerns. We questioned whether or not the 2006 Brook Trout Management Plan was made into a regulation using the proper regulatory processes. We the bait fisherman feel our rights and heritage have been infringed upon by this regulation taking away over 100 miles of bait fishing in...

By Brad Dokken, Grand Forks Herald, N.D. Jul. 13--By Brad Dokken Herald Staff Writer Fishing opportunities on smaller lakes within the Red Lake Indian Reservation date back to the 1930s, but the program really took off in 1987 when the band launched the Red Lake Department of Natural Resources.

A Hex, or if your Latin is good, a Hexagenia limbata, is a bomber- size Mayfly that shows up on Maine trout ponds in mid-summer, usually early July. For a trout, they area turkey dinner with all the fixins - a chance to get the most amount of food for the least amount of effort. To a trout-loving fly fishermen, a Hex hatch is an adrenaline rush- a sight to behold. In fact, like a solar eclipse or an expanse of northern lights in the winter sky, a true Hex hatch on a trout pond counts as one...

VANDERBILT, Mich. _ The smell of rotting fish could take the bark off trees. And to biologists Andrew Nuhfer and Tim Cwalinski, the sight of dozens of brown trout from 16 to 20 inches was infuriating and disheartening. Several miles of the Pigeon River were decimated last week because someone at the Song of the Morning Ranch, a yoga center, apparently screwed up when opening a gate on a private hydroelectric dam and released tons of soft black silt. The result for thousands of trout and...

The lines of anglers waiting to cover prime trout beats bear witness to a need Colorado might someday rise to meet, if anyone heeds a small change in wording of a policy paper wildlife commissioners approved last month. For decades, trout fishers have been growing in number. The crowding is conspicuous, especially among fly fishers who favor quality trout habitats, which Colorado calls Gold Medal waters. No one is making streams anymore (and few reservoirs). Meanwhile, public access has...

By Donna M. Perry WILTON - Matt Carlson brought his fishing pole back over his right shoulder and cast his line into the calm waters above the Wilson Stream dam Monday morning. The 11-year-old Wilton boy and his friend, Brody Pond, also 11 and of Wilton, were minutes into their fishing jaunt. Pond left his pole at home because he needed to repair it but went along for the fun. The two friends often come to fish there as it is one of their favorite pastimes, they said. They really...

Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
