STEELHEAD TROUT: WASHINGTON: Satsop, Wynoochee, Humptulips and Quinault are slightly high and off color but shaping up. Puyallup producing fair fish on brass spoons. Skykomish still yielding outsize steelies (but 25�-pounder from Satsop leads field).
OREGON: FP in most coastal waters as rain raises and roils rivers and OP this week.
CALIFORNIA: Tommy Devore, 12, was fishing Davies Creek near Eureka from an overhanging tree last week and hooked a fine steelhead; was cinch to land it when earthquake shook him into creek and fish broke off. Gualala and Garcia are good bets, with streamer flies productive on former; Sacramento is sizzling near Corning and OG if weather holds.

CHANNEL BASS: FLORIDA: Wacissa River and Cow Creek (NW Fla.) loaded with redfish to eight pounds; upper St. Marks, Aucilla, Ochlockonee and Crooked rivers should be good to excellent. Withlacoochee was jammed with reds to 12 pounds last week, and Venice Inlet produced good catches on live shrimp.
MISSISSIPPI: Biloxi Bay and Pascagoula River are good bets for fast redfishing this week.
BLACK BASS: LOUISIANA: FG and OG in swamp areas and barrow pits in the Red and Atchafalaya river valleys; in coastal areas abnormally low tides have fouled up freshwater fishing.
