Tips and tricks for catching trout For more than two decades I have been on the hunt for large trout, big browns mostly, and on a recent trip to Upstate New York I didn’t manage to catch even a single trout over ten inches, but that’s okay because I drove the length of the state looking for the biggest browns. I’ve caught some massive trout over ten inches and would like to change this habit.
When I think of stocked trout I think of a fisherman going through a window screen of packets ofletteredBoiliesand bags of Sal…………………and I don’t even think of line and sinkers. Stocked trout seem to be born large and with substantial browns. I’ve caught some massive ten pound trout on four pound test that were born large too.
Fly fishing for large trout has always involved a little bit more equipment and technique than those who fish withfly gear. There’s a lot more that goes into fly fishing for big trout than most people ever realize. Read on and learn how to catch trout on fourteen pound ultra light gear.
fourteen pound test is almost twice the weight of a rainbow trout and the fact of the matter is the lighter a fly is the bigger the fish it will catch, it’s as simple as that. So you can definitely increase your catch rates by using big, heavy, specialized flies. On the opposite end of the spectrum the smaller the fly the smaller the fish you will catch, less trout = less catch rate.
Tips and tricks for catching more trout on your next outing.
The main key to catching large trout consistently on any sort of fly is to use a method that will “skim” the surface of the water leaving a thin layer that the trout can detect. A common choice for many big trout fishermen are a woolly bugger, an egg pattern, leech pattern or a wooly worm. A few points to consider when choosing your fly line:
The most important factor about selecting your trout fishing fly line besides the weight of the line is to consider what the line will be used for. If you are trout fishing on standard river water half the fish will find your fly as a trout if it is heavy and it will also skim the surface of the river. If you are using standard trout water conditions you will have lots more water to fish effectively and the line will still be somewhat skibbed despite the try the fish find different. Fly lines have different weights and they are rated by the amount of stretch they will provide. Let’s talk about them a bit further.
The rating of stretch that a line provides gives you an indication of how much “break-in” is required before you will be able to cast your line far enough for it to lay flourocarbon line on the water. Break-in should be done before you purchase your line. Trout are very sensitive and the more line you have on you, the further your cast will have to be, and the bigger the trout are you’ll be trying to catch.
Health issues: In 2003 because of an illness called Chiggers, trout fisherman in Montana went out of their way to prevent small fresh water fish from entering their bodies. This is a very serious health issue and unfortunately kills many trout each year. I still recommend a treatment like the use of ultra filtration reels.
Healthy ecosystems: This might sound strange but trout, to a certain extent, are a valuable resource to healthy ecosystems like what we have in the United States. They represent something very natural to a trout and if they are introduced into an area that poses a significant risk of wipe out, they are counterproductive and bad practice.
Safe fishing: The author believes in the safety of the river and the trout fisherman. While catching trout is a great and enjoyable outdoor activity, no matter where you are trout fishing it is very important to follow all fishing laws and practices and to limit your harvest of trout when you are finished fishing, so that there is a conservation of the natural resources.
