|5 Useful Tips on Trout Fishing
In fishing, trout are one of the favorite "fishing friends" of
most anglers. These crafty fish are abundant anywhere. The
native habitat of these crafty fish depends on the type of
For brook trout, the native habitat includes the territory from
Labrador westward to the Saskatchewan, while the rainbow trout
is a native of the Pacific slope from Alaska to California.
On the other hand, brown trout has found its way into the waters
of every state in the United States except Florida, Arkansas,
Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North
Dakota, Oklahoma, and Texas. It has been reported in the waters
of some of these states, but according to conservation
officials, no authentic reports have been received. It is also
found in many parts of Canada.
In trout fishing, there are some factors that need to be
considered in order to have a successful catch.
1. For trout fishing, the leader should not be greased. It will
not sink far enough to cause any difficulty when picking the
line and lure from the water, but if it is allowed to float; it
will cast a shadow on the bottom of the stream which may scare
2. The trout is one of the fishes that are usually secured
through the use of the dry fly. For trout, the current as well
as the pools should be fished. It may sometimes be a bit
difficult to keep the fly from sinking or dragging because of
the various conditions of the current, but this is a matter that
the angler will have to figure out for himself.
3. It is not good practice when fishing for trout to fish
directly upstream so the flies, line, and leader will float
directly over fish. The fisherman should make the cast from one
side of the stream so the fly will only float over the fish.
4. It is important to make the first cast the best. A feeding
trout will usually strike the first lure presented if it is cast
so that it will float over his private domain. The angler should
never fail to fish the lower end of the pool first even if the
trout are rising in the middle or upper end.
5. Trout are sometimes very moody or selective and will try the
patience of any angler; hence, possibly a fly with less hackle
will do the trick or it may be necessary to use a spent-wing fly
or a fan wing.
Indeed, catching trout fishes can be lots of fun. The anglers
just have to remember these tips in order to have a happy catch.
