Kokanee are landlocked sockeye salmon, and in the face of dwindling returns and lower harvest limits many anglers are turning to these lake-dwelling salmon as a way to find sport and fill the freezer. Cody travells to Odell Lake, one of the best Kokanee fisheries, to try to find out which patterns and tactics work for these choosy fish.
After a tough time finding a consistently effective method for Kokanee, a kind of landlocked salmon, on unfamiliar waters last time, in this episode Cody's with a different team of anglers to see if they can find a reliable way to reach your bag limit quickly. He calls on the expertise of the local 'Kokanee Kid' to find out what really works.
Cody and friends head to the Southern Oregon coast to target fall chinook in skinny water. They try a variety of techniques, baits and lures, including bobber and egg rigs, lures and more. Low water can make fishing for salmon tricky, and there's a fair amount of pressure on the fishing, so it requires all of their patience and to connect with these migrating salmon.
After a tough day on the water in part one, owing to low water and heavy fishing pressure, the guys are keen to put some of the lessons learned into practice on day two. But today the weather is against them - what tactics will work? Along the way they get a chance to discuss the importance of hatchery fish to the system, and how to tell which fish are from the hatchery.
Cody’s visiting the steelheading Mecca of the Olympic Peninsular and he’s got one thing on his mind – to catch an elusive 20lb steeler. Along the way he looks at what techniques can help when fishing unfamiliar water, what to look for when searching out a fishing spot, and how to negotiate rapids when drifting in an unfamiliar river.
After a tough first visit to the Olympic Peninsular earlier in the year Cody is determined to learn from his previous mistakes to increase his chances of connecting with steelhead. High, coloured water means that he’s got to review his tactics.
Hunting Trout Part 1
Join Mozz and Hooch, or Adrian and Kelly as their mothers know them, two larger than life anglers from the Australian island of Tasmania as they take part in the Tasmania Classic Trout Competition, a lure fishing tournament in the famous New Norfolk trout fishery. They meet the local Lord Mayor, then head out onto the water to pit their skills(?) against those of the locals.
Hunting Trout Part 2
The troublesome twosome are back out early in the morning to witness the shotgun start of the day’s fishing and their motor racing pedigree comes in handy for some off the cuff motorsports commentary before they get back down to the serious business of catching some of Tasmania’s famous trout. These guys really know how to enjoy their fishing, and they make sure to stop and have a friendly chat with their fellow competitors, and the excitement all gets too much for Hooch, who decides to cool off.
