Prince Charles plans to extend his summer holiday at Balmoral 'for an extra week because the fishing is so good', royal photographer says

>>>The Prince of Wales plans to extend his summer holiday at the Queen's Balmoral estate 'for an extra week because the fly fishing is so good', according to a royal photographer.

Prince Charles, 71, and the Duchess of Cornwall, 73, apparently kicked off their break at their Scottish residence of Birkhall this week after he paid a visit to Caithness General Hospital in Wick on Friday to thank frontline workers, Hello! reported.

And the heir to the throne already plans to stay for seven days longer than planned so he can continue to pursue one of his favourite hobbies.

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, royal photographer royal Tim Rooke claimed a local told him Charles 'has decided to stay up for an extra week because the fishing is so good'.

Tom Earnhardt on the Patients a Hugh Morton

https://wr.al/1Iic4

North Carolinians of my generation knew Hugh Morton as the person most responsible for bringing the "Battleship North Carolina" to Wilmington, as a strong voice for saving the Cape Hatteras lighthouse, as an ardent environmentalist, and as the developer and protector of Grandfather Mountain.

Fish tales: The time that salmon hopped into the boat

>>>A couple weeks back, I asked BDN readers to share some fish tales, recognizing that nearly anything can happen on a fishing trip, and hoping others shared my view that you don't have to actually catch anything to end up with a whopper of a story.

Angler lands record Yellowstone cutthroat trout

>>>The recent catch of a 30.5-inch Yellowstone cutthroat trout has been approved by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game as a state record.

Sam Hix, visiting from Bellaire, Texas, caught the behemoth on Aug. 7 while fly-fishing on the Snake River with Idaho Falls guide Josh Heileson.

Grants to help boost brook-trout fishing in Eastern WV

>>>Brook-trout habitat in West Virginia's Potomac Highlands and Eastern Panhandle will soon get an upgrade.

Armed with $827,000 in grants from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, contractors for the Trout Unlimited conservation organization will improve in-stream habitat, plant streamside trees to provide shade, and will reconnect stretches of stream that have become isolated from one another.

Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., announced the grants Sept. 3. The projects will focus primarily on headwater tributaries of the South Branch of the Potomac, and on tributaries of the Cacapon River.

Dustin Wichterman, who coordinates the work for Trout Unlimited, said $476,470 of the money will be spent in the South Branch watershed upstream from Franklin, in Pendleton County. The remaining $350,630 will be spent in the Cacapon watershed. Both projects will include work on public and private land.

Smith Creek: Tales of a favorite drainage

>>>Everyone should have a favorite drainage to pursue their outdoor activities. Smith Creek, in Boundary County, checks all of the boxes for me.

As it flows from the Selkirk Mountains into the Kootenai River, Smith Creek sources underneath Lions Head Ridge and Smith Peak. Cow Creek, an aptly named tributary because of Forest Service grazing allotments, joins Smith Creek near the old Dirt Oven site. The lower reach, below the spectacular Smith Falls, is channelized as it passes through the Boundary-Smith Creek Wildlife Management Area.

To qualify as your favorite, you must first establish a personal history with a watershed.

>>>Roger Daltrey from The Who

The Who frontman Roger Daltrey's luxurious rural estate has grown from 35 acres to over 400 acres under his stewardship since 1971 and he would often invite friends to go trout fishing on his land but, in a change of heart, decided over thirty years ago to open it up to the public.

Daltrey felt it was selfish to have this trout farm just for himself so, in 1981, he decided to open Lakeland Trout Fishery and has never looked back since. Speaking to Surrey Life in 2018 about the fishery, he said that he has "met lots of people who are more interested in fish than rock star Roger".

Dead rainbow trout floated on the South Platte. Could fish detectives crack the case?

>>>Two weeks ago, Rick Mikesell started his morning the way he often does before heading in to his job as operations manager at Trouts Fly Fishing in Denver — he wet a line in the urban stretch of the South Platte River near the Interstate 25 overpass.

An isolated downpour the day before had bumped up the river's flow, and perhaps cooled it off a bit amid a stretch of blistering heat, and just as he suspected, his beloved carp were in fine form. Then he noticed a couple of dead rainbow trout floating nearby.

He didn't think much of it — rainbows are cold-water fish, and though some have been stocked by private interests and have adapted to this relatively warm stretch of the South Platte, it's not uncommon to find one that has succumbed to high temperatures. But then he saw another. And another. And another.

When the count reached a half-dozen, he grew concerned.

Appreciating a legend while he's still around

>>>I took my time with John Gierach's latest work "Dumb Luck and the Kindness of Strangers," which is not my usual program with his books. He's written 20 over his career, and I usually reach the back cover in a week or two.

>>>At some point, Gierach will write his last book, and in a year filled with eulogies of cultural icons, sporting icons and even traditional or historical ideas, I wanted to sit for a while in the moment of living appreciation. Gierach will write more books, but life happens.

As long as he is writing, I will be buying. He'll write about rivers I've fished, rivers I'd like to fish and rivers I'll never find out about because he's sworn them to secrecy. And that will never get old.

Colorado River Flow Now Part Of Caddisfly Battle In Bullhead City

>>>Bullhead City is located along the Colorado River, across from Laughlin, Nevada.

The area is known as a place to take advantage of Arizona's mild winters, to gamble or spend time along the river.

But it had a problem. Twice a year, caddisflies emerge from the river in swarms.

"They don't bite. They don't sting. They just are a nuisance. They get into people's food. They get into people's ears, noses. They're all over you," said Michael Cavallaro, a pest control expert for Bullhead City.

Caddisflies are commonly found wherever there is clean water, but the population near Bullhead City has exploded. Nobody knew what to do about it.

DEC: Salmon River low water level closes fly-fishing section until 'further notice'

>>>Normally, the Lower Fly Fishing-Only Zone on the Salmon River is open from Sept. 15 through May 14 each year.

Not this fall.

The state Department of Environmental Conservation has announced that the popular, catch and release zone, which stretches from the County Route 52 bridge in Altmar upstream .25 mile to the marked boundary at Beaverdam Brook, will remain closed until "further notice."

Fishing report: Know your bugs

>>>How important is it for us to know about what insects are in the Bitterroot and when they hatch? I have always promoted the pocket guide for insects written and published by Orvis. A new book has been published, written by Paul Weamer, titled "The Bug Book: A Fly Fisher's Guide to Trout Stream Insects." This book promises us a complete guide to aquatic entomology for fly fishermen, covering all the important insects and their imitations for the entire United States. I don't know about you but I don't plan to fish all of the United States in the remaining years of my life. I plan to fish a few rivers in Montana and maybe Wyoming, but do I care about the hatches in New York or Maine? Are the insects the same there as they are here? The answer to these questions and others that you may have are in the book or books that have been published in the past. Insects won't evolve in my lifetime or in several lifetimes to come, but knowing about your own home river might be a challenge to the novice fly fisherman.
