Make the most of your fishing photos

This week’s Playing Outdoors section is all about photography. For me, photos are a huge part of what makes fishing fun. I always enjoy looking through pictures from old trips and remembering good days spent on the water. Photos also provide a key piece of evidence for those “pictures, or it didn’t happen!” types, and an easy way to share your catches with your buddies, at the office or on social media. By the end of this column, shoddy fishing photos will be a thing of the past

Sturgeon fishing in Idaho

White sturgeon are the largest freshwater species in North America. Specimens up to 8 feet in length are fairly common, and big ones can exceed 10 feet and weigh several hundred pounds. Sturgeon cannot be harvested in Idaho, and anglers must follow special rules to fish for them, as this video from Idaho Fish and Game explains.
