As an avid outdoorsman I have spent many an hour sharpening and honing various knives for my camping, fishing and hunting needs. I still even have my dad's ole' wet stone he used on his fileting and skinning knives from over 60 years ago. While I wouldn't trade my dad's ole' stone for any amount of money, I can honestly say that I'm sure glad I discovered the Work Sharptm line of sharpening tools. I've used these products on every knife in my home, that's a lot, and I haven't been dissapointed one time. In fact I sharpened my lawn mower blade and was amazed how well the mower works when the blade is sharp! Now that I have Work Sharptm tools at the ready, I can preserve my dad's ole' stone and pass its legacy on to my granddaughter while creating a new knife sharpening legacy of my own.

Idaho Dept. of Fish & Game Stocking Report
Wilson Springs Pond was scheduled to be stocked again this week along with Eagle Island Park Pond, Kleiner Pond, McDevitt Pond, Quinn Pond, Veteran's Park Pond, Riverside Pond and Williams Park Pond. Other ponds and streams will continue to be stocked each week through November with catchable sized trout, weather and water conditions permitting. For the latest and future stocking reports refer to the Idaho Dept. of Fish & Game web site at: https://fishandgame.idaho.gov.
Manns Creek Reservoir
Both bank and small watercraft anglers were caching some decent sized trout just prior to our cold snap, and the fishing could still be decent. However, the boat ramp is out of the water and with snow on the ground access down to the reservoir might be a bit hazardous. It's steep and a long way down so a 4-wheel drive vehicle is advisable. If you go try using PowerBait, marshmallows, worms or PowerEggs from the bank to catch fish. Flycasters were using small olive and brown colored leech patterns and Sheep Creek Specials.
Our fishing reports locations vary each week, but if there is a new lake, stream or river you would like to see on our fishing reports, . For more Fishing information in the Southwestern Region of Idaho and throughout the state, e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
