Nick Offerman and his dad spent a quiet afternoon fishing and not talking



 

Nick Offerman is a man of few words. Sometimes, silence says it all.

So when Offerman and his father Ric Offerman hung out recently in celebration of the upcoming Father's Day (Reminder: it's June 19), the two shared some essential father-son bonding time, as well as some great conversation.

Apparently, the silence runs in the family.

The silent clip is another installment of the My Tales of Whisky series, in collaboration with Lagavulin Whisky. Of course, Nick seems to be enjoying this dream job quite a bit, probably because he gets to sit around, fish and drink the whole time.

And this time was extra special, because Nick was able to hang out with his hero. 

"Working with my Dad (aka my hero) was a sincere honor and a treat - especially since all we had to do was go fishing," Offerman said about the experience. "And if people have enjoyed my stoic expressions, then I expect they’re about to have their hats fly off when they lay eyes on the face of the august edifice from whence I sprung."

The premise of the ad is, of course, centered around it being the perfect gift for dad.

Lagavulin: A gift for dad that says all you need to say.

Fish to learn, learn to fish at annual fishing day


Central Montana’s 23rd annual Kids’ Fishing Day takes place from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 11, at Wadsworth Pond on the west side of Great Falls.

Since 1995, thousands of youngsters and adults have spent a day catching fish while learning the basic elements of fishing, including types of tackle, casting, fly-tying, fish identification and fishing safety and ethics. There is no age limit for this free event, but the activities are geared toward young people just learning how to fish.

As in past years, the Great Falls chapter of Walleyes Unlimited provides a free rod and reel outfit or tackle box to participants who complete a series of educational stations.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, the U.S. Forest Service, Malmstrom Air Force Base, Missouri River Flyfishers and North Middle School Fishing Club also participate in the event.

No fishing license is required that day at Wadsworth.

To reach Wadsworth Pond, head west on Central Avenue over I-15, turn north on 34th St. N.W., then turn west on Wilkinson Lane and follow to the park.

For more information, contact FWP in Great Falls at 454-5840.

Puget Sound’s recreational crab fishing season set to begin

OLYMPIA, Wash. — Five areas of the Puget Sound are opening in June for recreational crab fishing.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife says the south Puget Sound will be open through Sept. 5 on every day except Tuesdays and Wednesday.

Neah Bay, Sekiu and Hood Canal open June 16. The northern section of Admiralty Inlet also opens on June 16.

Most other areas of the Sound will open for recreational crab fishing in July and August. State officials say they will be doing some test fishing in coming weeks to determine whether those fisheries can open sooner.

The daily limit for crab fishers throughout Puget Sound is five Dungeness crab, males only, in hard-shell condition with a minimum carapace width of 6¼ inches. Fishers may keep six red rock crab of either sex per day, provided those crab measure at least 5 inches across.

Sockeye fishing curtailed in Upper Columbia; weak run expected

FISHING -- Portions of the upper Columbia River near the Tri-Cities will be closed to sockeye fishing because of forecasts for a weak run, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife says.

While other fishing will be allowed, the closure to sockeye retention will be in effect June 16 through Aug. 15, 2016, in these stretches: 

  • Area 1:  Columbia River from Hwy. 395 Bridge at Pasco to the Interstate 182 Bridge at Richland near Columbia Point (CRC 534). Daily limit of three (3) salmon, of which no more than one (1) may be adult hatchery chinook. Release wild adult chinook and sockeye.
  • Area 2:  Columbia River (Hanford Reach) from the Interstate 182 Bridge to Priest Rapids Dam (CRC 535 and 536). Daily limit of four (4) salmon, of which no more than two (2) may be adult hatchery chinook. Release wild adult chinook and sockeye.

Reason for the restrictions, according to WDFW:

The pre-season forecast for upper Columbia River sockeye salmon is only for about 102,000 fish returning to the river mouth. This run abundance is insufficient to support sockeye harvest in the upper Columbia River and meet spawning escapement goals in the Wenatchee and Okanogan basins. Achieving a successful sockeye spawn in 2016 is extremely important following the massive mortality and poor spawning escapement of upper Columbia sockeye caused by the drought and high water temperatures in 2015.

Other information: Anglers must use barbless hooks when fishing for salmon and must have a current Washington fishing license, as well as a Columbia River Salmon and Steelhead Endorsement (CRSSE).

Anglers may fish with two poles with the Two-Pole Endorsement, except for sturgeon.

A fishing venture to Omak Lake east of Cascades worthy of chunky-sized cutthroat trout

Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:

I have wanted to fish Omak Lake since early this year, and it got so late I decided to wait until the North Embayment opened to boating.

That was June 1, so my fishing buddy Rollie Schmitten headed up there. Schmitten cast a fly while I got the boat set up for rigger fishing and he got quite a few hits, but nothing committed enough to hook. We got a nice fish near where we launched the boat and I chose to run down to the south end of the lake where I have caught buckets of the Lahontan cutthroat that inhabit Omak Lake.

We got some fish here and then headed back to the launch area to spend the last hour of the day. Well, we never should have left.

I started trolling in a tight circle with the downriggers set at just 14 feet. We were catching a fish every five minutes! Most of the cutthroat were 14 to 16 inches and I got one that was 19 inches. We caught all but one of the fish on a red and cream colored plug that is my favorite on Omak Lake.

We did get one fish on a pearl and red Needlefish. If you haven’t ever fished Omak Lake give it a try.

It is a beautiful spot and loaded with beautiful cutthroat.
