YAKIMA – Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz love hunting for “rusty gold,” as they often say on their hit documentary series, “American Pickers.” Their cross-country search has previously brought them to Washington state – and they’re returning in April.

They’re looking for leads to hidden treasure as they ply the byways of the Evergreen State and film episodes of the History Channel show, according to a news release.

“American Pickers” explores the world of antique “picking” and the characters who own the forgotten relics that Wolfe and Fritz want to rescue and recycle. As anyone who watches the show knows, each has his favorites – Wolfe likes finding rare bicycles and motorcycles and Fritz is a fan of old oil cans.

“They are always excited to find sizable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them,” the release said. “The pair hopes to give historically significant objects a new lease on life, while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way.”

Wolfe and Fritz focus on private individuals with large antique collections they can spend time exploring. If you fit the description or know someone who does, the show’s producers encourage you to send your name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to, or call 855-OLD-RUST.
