EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO START FISHING TODAY
Trout are found in clear faster moving streams and clear highland lakes. In streams, they are found in holes above and below riffles, behind obstructions, in eddies, and in the deeper spots of river bends and cut banks.
Trout will feed at all times, but are most active on cloudy days. In the Spring and Fall, trout are more sluggish than in the warmer weather months. Slow down your retrieve during these cooler months.
They prefer flies, curltail grubs, jigs, small spoons, trout pellets, small spinners and live bait such as worms and minnows.
Trout are very skittish. Keep movement, noise and vibrations to a minimum. Cast upstream from your intended target allowing the current to drift your bait into the fish holding zone. When wading, avoid casting shadows, making splashes, and dragging your feet.
The choice of rig and technique depends on fishing conditions.
The Clinch Knot is recommended for all rigs.
