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)
Well the catch and keep season opened August 1st but not much has happened in spite of the fact that a lot of fish have passed over Lower Granite Dam headed this way. Don't get me wrong, anglers are catching fish, but not in the numbers given how many fish should be headed our way. I believe this weeks rains will put things in motion and the fishing will improver overnight. The lower river from the confluence to Memorial Bridge is the only stretch open to catch and keep , but many other stretches of the river are open to catch and release fishing.
Little Salmon River (Riggins Stream Flow)
Catch and release until after August 31st. No fish to speak of have arrived here anyway.
Lower Salmon River ( Whitebird Stream Flow)
Catch and release until after August 31st. Not much to report here either, but hopefully the cooling rains will drive the fish this way soon.
Upper Salmon River (Salmon Stream Flow)
Catch and release until after August 31st. Definately no action here yet, but shouldn't be too long.
Hells Canyon on the Snake River (Lewiston to Hells Canyon Stream Flows)
Catch and release until after August 31st. There could be a few fish hanging around the confluence of the Grand Ronde, and maybe even as far up as the confluence of the Salmon River. No reports yet of fish below the dam.
