RainbowCrop2

I would blog about something else, but my phone keeps ringing.  Everyone wants to know if their favorite urban or parks pond has been stocked with the 10-inch rainbows yet.  When we publish a stocking schedule, we always post a disclaimer–a breakdown, bad weather, unforeseen events will result in a change in the schedule.  It happens, or should I say, “it happened”: Fremont Lakes SRA No. 2 trout stocking delayed October 15, 2020 LINCOLN, Neb. – Due to vehicle mechanical …

The End, The Beginning

P3020016

Last adventure report I called that I might not be done ice-fishing yet. I was not.

You …

Fall Review 2019

PA240024

I will fish every month, every year, somewhere in Nebraska for some species of fish.  However, I will confess that there are certain times of the year when I am a lot more serious about my fishing. You might be surprised to know that spring is not my favorite time to be on the water.  There are a lot better times when the weather is more consistent, the fish are less interested in reproduction and more interested in feeding, and …
