KEY TO SYMBOLS
SO=season opened (or opens); SC=season closed (or doses); SV=season varies by district or water.
PACIFIC SALMON: CALIFORNIA: Cohoes still running off Smith and Klamath rivers. Trollers off Golden Gate went chinookless last week as the big spawners moved into the bay and Sacramento River, and prospects are excellent.
BRITISH COLUMBIA: FP generally but some magnificent winter springs are showing at Horseshoe Bay, off the Qualicum and Campbell River, and taking herring and herring strip; also catches of fat and sassy grilse silvers averaging two pounds have been made off French Creek and at Saanichton Inlet; OG for both these types.
CHANNEL BASS: NORTH CAROLINA: Surfcasters scoring on 35- to 45-pound bass from Kitty Hawk to Ocracoke Inlet along outer banks; 51-pounder landed last week near wreck of old LST abreast village of Rodanthe, and OG for entire area through November.
FLORIDA: Good schools of three-to seven-pound redfish with weakness for cut mullet reported in Ochlockonee, St. Marks, Withlacoochee, Waccasassa and Steinhatchee rivers; OG with best results nearest Gulf and in deep holes.
TENNESSEE: Douglas Lake producing good bass despite low water and Cherokee Lake is turning up some fair fish on spoons and spinners cast from the points, but most east Tennessee lakes are quiet; OP as freezing weather numbs bass.
LOUISIANA: A streetcar named City Park will haul you from downtown New Orleans to one of this state's hottest black bass spots, the eight-mile-long park lagoon; regular license and $1 fee entitles you to try for abundant three-pounders, with OG through most of winter.
