Back to hard copy for tide prediction

Fishing on the Delta this past weekend was very difficult. I can't remember ever fishing a tide like one I faced last weekend. The water level fluctuated a total of one foot between high and low tide meaning that the water was barely moving where I was fishing. In the past I used to carry a tide book in my boat but have since relied on downloadable tide app for my phone. I don't know if it's me reading using the app wrong but I'm still not able to get an accurate tide prediction.

Kokanee get a break this year due to drought

This year, more than any other year, I'm really being forced to think twice about where I'm going to go fishing next. Very few of my regular summertime fishing spots have enough water to safely or easily launch my boat anymore. These past few years I've really enjoyed fishing for Kokanee. Lakes like New Melones and Don Pedro are full of Kokanee but are both at their lowest in decades. All of the reports have stated that it's safe to launch with a 4X4, but without a courtesy dock and only one lane, I'm not ...
