I will be talking walleyes this weekend.  One thing I know is true, Have a great weekend, GO FISH!

Pike Y-Bone Removal

You know that I am always getting up on a “soap box” to  promote catch & release fishing:  It is a fact of life for sport anglers nowadays.  You will either be required by regulation to release at least some of the fish you catch or you will choose to voluntarily release some of your catch; it is important for developing and maintaining quality fishing..  I believe the best practice is what has been termed “selective harvest”–choosing to harvest a few …

Spring Brings the Call of the Crane

The spring migration has begun when the unique and primeval call of the sandhill crane is heard; it is one that captures our attention and curiosity. Standing four-foot tall these prehistoric birds travel through Nebraska as part of their migration from summering areas in Texas, New Mexico and Mexico to their nesting areas in the upper United States, Canada and as far North as Siberia. In the Central Flyway, Nebraska is one of the few places left for the 500,000-plus …

Waterfalls in Nebraska? Yes, There Are!

I was talking with folks at the Omaha Boat, Sports and Travel Show this past week who had just moved here to Nebraska from Colorado and they just couldn’t believe that this state (our state) has any waterfalls in it whatsoever. Whoa, folks, not so fast. We do have waterfalls in the Cornhusker State and some really cool ones at that! Look at the stair step falls along the Niobrara River near Valentine, NE. So, new friends and Nebraska residents, this blog post is for you! Enjoy catching a glimpse …

Fish Passageways in Nebraska?

I have an interesting news release I want to share with you: Now I know this open house, this particular fish passage project, is not going to be of great importance to many of you unless you are familiar with the Cedar River particularly in the Spalding and Ericson area.  But, I am betting that very few reading this have even considered that there might be a need for fish passageways on Nebraska rivers and streams.  No, we do not have migratory …

Critter Calling

I seem to always dust off the rimfire guns in late winter. I get out the 22 mag revolver or 17 hmr rifle and head to the woods in search of critters that will come to the call. Coon calling is one of my favorite things to do and we still have until the end of February  to get out and give it a try. These guys can be easy to call in at times and provide loads of fun …
