Winter fishing

Posted on

The Trout fishing season ended some months ago, but a previous fishing club that I have just left closed on New Year's eve.

I tend to avoid trout fishing in the very cold months and I consider that January and February are in those months. So I concentrate on staying indoors and stocking up the fly boxes ready for spring. If the weather looks mild enough I may venture out to try for Pike on my local river with fly. But the trouble with river fishing is that if it rains, then the water colours up and rises. This makes fishing slightly uncomfortable (it tends to be colder) and I rather suspect that the fish cannot see the brightly coloured lure as well as they might in clearer water.
