Work Sharptm Knife & Tool Sharpener
The Work Sharp Knife & Tool Sharpener is the first knife sharpener designed to sharpen every knife you own. Using flexible abrasive belts, the sharpener is able to sharpen not just straight bladed knives, but also curved knives, tanto blades, filet knives, serrated knives, gut hooks and virtually any other shape of knife blade. The Knife & Tool Sharpener uses precision angle sharpening guides to ensure that you get the proper angle every time. Two guides are included: a 50° guide for hunting and outdoor knives (25° per bevel) and a 40° guide for thinner blades and kitchen knives (20° per bevel). Professional knife makers use flexible belts to put a razor sharp edge on their blades, and now you can have the same technology at home to use any time your knives get dull. You may already have other sharpening methods, but never before has a knife sharpener been able to quickly and easily sharpen this broad range of knives to such extremely sharp results.
The Work Sharptm Knife & Tool Sharpener is also able to sharpen other common tools including scissors, axes and hatchets, mower blades, garden shears, shovels, and most any tool with a blade. The versatility of the Knife & Tool Sharpener makes it an invaluable tool for keeping all your blades in razor sharp condition and ready whenever you need them. For more information go online to

(Orofino Stream Flows)
Anglers are still catching a few fish in the lower Clearwater River between the confluence and Memorial Bridge, that is when they're not catching salmon. This time of year backtrolling with lighted crankbaits is one of the most affective ways to catch fish.
Little Salmon River (Riggins Stream Flow)
A few fish there but not exactly streaming into the little river, we still need some cooler nights or cold rains before fishing will take-off and we just might get it this weekend so get your gear and take a look.
Lower Salmon River ( Whitebird Stream Flow)
Anglers have been catching steelhead on the lower Salmon near Riggins on the lower Salmon between Shorts Bar below the confluence of the Little Salmon to Hammer Creek.. Many anglers here are drifting bait but backtrolling plugs is also a popular and productive option.
Upper Salmon River (Salmon Stream Flow)
Still not much action here but it won't be long.
Hells Canyon on the Snake River (Lewiston to Hells Canyon Stream Flows)
A few fish are being caught below the dam, but most are still being caught near the confluence of the Salmon and around the confluence of the Grand Ronde on the Snake River. Most are drifting bait but pulling plugs behind a boat will also catch fish.
