NEVADA: Walker Lake continues to produce outsize cutthroats on trolled or spin-cast surface lures; OG and improving.
IDAHO: FVG along middle fork of Salmon with fresh steelhead roe getting best results; outlook is doubtful as melting snow was raising stream level at press time.
MISSOURI: Anglers still swarming at Bennett Spring and doing nicely with live bait. Water is L and C, outlook is excellent. Montauk State Park is providing consistent catches of trout to 14 inches on flies and OG.
NEW JERSEY: When SO April 7, state will have planted 250,000 legal trout in public waters and will stock same number during season. Forecast is for high, cold, discolored streams and slow sport even for wormers on opening weekend.
CHANNEL BASS: NORTH CAROLINA: Huge schools of redfish have been sighted in vicinity of Pamlico Sound shoals by airmen on rescue missions recently, and big reds are still turning up in local pound nets; OG for some surf action and inlet trolling on second or third day of next southwest wind, due any minute.
FLORIDA: Keys spy says Sam Snead and two friends caught 300 pounds of channel bass off Flamingo last week; largest was 10� pounds.
WALLEYED PIKE: ONTARIO: FF and OF in most provincial waters; top spots are Lake Temagami, north of North Bay, and Lake Penage, west of Sudbury.
TENNESSEE: Carroll Earl of Chillicothe took 14�-pound walleye last week; this is heaviest of species reported in several years.
STEELHEAD TROUT: WASHINGTON: FP generally as rains came; nearly every stream H and D, but good runs are now in most rivers, and OVG when they clear. Guide boats on upper Skagit still doing fairly well on drifts from Rockport to Sedro Woolley. Baker River muddy and is murking Skagit below junction. Cold weather needed to clear Nooksack and Skagit for good fishing before SC April 15. (Many streams closed March 31, and careful study of regulations is advised.)
OREGON: OVP for rest of season as warm rains and snow runoff have raised rivers above fish-able level and heaviest snow pack in history threatens worse flooding.
