The Trout Angler's Edge

In early season look for the deepest hole in the area.  Don't listen to the folks that tell you to use tiny stuff in cold condition,

Throw a T-bone steak at them.  Slow and deep is the key in cold water conditions. Bites are more subtle in cold weather also.

A real trout angler has never said:

"I wish I had a smaller net."

The proper way to revive a trout prior to release is to hold it facing upstream facing a mild current.  Do not row the trout back and forth. It will let you know when it is time to release it.

The view from the bridge might look inviting but if you think that....so has every Tom, Dick and Mary.

Do a little exploring in 2016.  Fight that urge to bridge fish.

300 yards from that bridge you could be rewarded handsomely.

Nothing But Net

That hole that is choked with weeds in June will have fewer or none in January.

One of my late morning January 02 stops I believe.




another possibility.
