Fly Fishing Tips
"Three tips on being able to catch fish out of a river or stream...Location... Location... Location... oh and maybe a little bit of good timing".
This article details some of the basic tips and tricks needed to become a fly fisherman.
Research your River or Stream
- Go on your states website and find out the dates and times when fish are being let out from the hatchery to stock the rivers you will be fishing.
- As close as you can get to be downstream from the hatchery, or where they deposit hatchery fish the better your fishing is going to be.
- For more information on your states website and bodies of water go to thelakereview.com click on your state and click on the state record fish… which takes you straight to your states fish and wildlife site.
Little More Research
- You must find the underwater structure that will give you the most fish possible.
- Most river fish like to concentrate around the more calm areas of the stream or river such as slow deep pools within the river.
- Trout like to sit behind huge rocks that stick out almost above the water because this creates a blockade to stop to fast moving water and lets the fish take a break from the constant current.
As usual I will include a way for all my fellow fishermen to save their money!
For bait you could always use those fly's that are 2 to 3 dollars a piece maybe more considering who makes them.
Or instead you could use corn which trout love… it's a cheap economical way to fish and not have to spend a lot of money. It's a great bait… you should definitely try it!
