Larger Walleye, Northern Pike Stocked in Many Nebraska Waters

LINCOLN, Neb. – While many anglers associate October with rainbow trout stocking in Nebraska, other fish are being stocked, as well. The Calamus and North Platte fish hatcheries have raised 7- to 9-inch walleye and 12-inch northern pike. These species are typically stocked at fingerling size, but they were grown to an advanced size to increase chances of survival. Advanced walleyes have been stocked in Branched Oak Reservoir, Buckskin Hills Lake, Cottonmill Lake, Holmes Lake, Leigh Lake, Maskenthine Reservoir, Morman …

Hosts with the most

I am often asked how much we communicate with pointy-headed fisheries biologists in other states.  Come to think of it, sometimes I am not asked that question so much as am told that “you guys need to do what they do in _________________________ (fill in blank with your favorite non-Nebraska state).  Actually we are very aware of what fisheries biologists in other states are doing, communicate with them frequently, and by they way, they know very much what we are …

Turkey Down! Combodacious!

This may be my last report from the spring turkey “woods” for 2013.  It has been one of the best seasons ever for me; I have assisted/guided in the taking of several birds and then finally punched a tag for myself.  Once again this year, I traveled to the Ponderosa pine-covered canyons that break into the Niobrara River for my bird.  I have hunted turkeys this spring from the rolling farm land of southeast Nebraska to the rugged cedar tree-studded …

In the Field with Jeff Kurrus- Pike Sampling at Lake Wanahoo

I love pike. I have since the first time I hooked one and it tried to rip my rod and reel from my grasp. Therefore, it was a no-brainer for me to tag along with Jordan Katt and his surveying crew yesterday morning at Lake Wanahoo in Wahoo. What I found was tremendous. Not only did we trap net a high number of northern pike, the fish looked extremely healthy with many in the 30-inch range. And the best part? …

Nebraska Ice-fari

At no time this winter have I have been completely convinced that we were going to have a long ice-fishing season.  Yes, we have had some cold weather, have had plenty of ice to be safe, but then we have these bouts of warm temperatures.  It has been cold in between thaws, but not cold enough for long enough.  Since I have not been convinced it will last long, the past couple of weeks I have been on the ice …

Adventure Report, New Year’s Break

My family and I got out of town for an extended time over the New Year’s holiday.  We went “out west” to celebrate Christmas with family, and as I promised before we left, we spent as much time as possible enjoying Nebraska’s great outdoors!  Time to give you a report. . . . I have listened to plenty of negativity and complaining about pheasant numbers and pheasant hunting this year.  Believe me, I know there are not the number of …
