More Trout Today

Recommended Posts

Water levels are up in the creeks and the fish got really spread out from the stocking this week. The fishing was excellent, landed over 30 between my little brother and I, most were released but we brought back 11 to continue our pond stocking this winter :D

They were all fat and stubby stocked trout but still a blast!

fly fishing?

I don't fly fish for stocked trout until late spring/early summer when there is a population of fish that has been in the  creek long enough to know what real food is! Natural presentations often get ignored because the trout don't know what real food is yet! I do have egg patterns and stupid flashy stocked trout flies that I tie for occasional use but I just assume use light spinning gear until spring/summer. Fly rod is the weapon of choice for native brookies though. Purists like using 100% fly rod but there is nothing pure about catching a fish that was dumped in the creek from a truck no matter how you look at it  :D

Also, just wondering: how do you manage to tie on lures in the cold frigid air? I don't wear gloves because its impossible to fish with them on for me, and my hands go so numb that i can't even tie on a new lure :P so i just stick with one lure usually. I was thinking of maybe using a clip to help me change lures quick but im not so sure..

Get some wool gloves with the fingertips cut out, this way you can hold the line with your index finger while casting a spinning rod, the only downside to wearing gloves is that you lose some sensitivity. I also wear insulated neoprene chest waders, if my hands get cold I just shove them down in my waders and take a short break for them to warm up. Get some hand warmers as well. Overdress for the temperature, you can always shed layers if you get hot, the wamer your core is, the less likely you are to get cold hands.

 

Buy some berkley power eggs and #12 hooks, drift them along the bottom with as few split shot as possible, this should eliminate the need to change lures  :D the only baits I carry are trout magnets and power eggs.

I've got neoprene waders as well, i am roasting warm every where except my hands :P

I think i am going to need to buy some of those berkley power eggs, i don't really understand how they work, but i've heard that they do work well.

My main current lure is a little curly tail grub on a jig head, i usually just let it drift down and then i twitch it back. I might get a trout magnet kit too if i see one. How do you work those things? They don't look like they have much action at all.

 

And I just was looking on youtube about the trout magnet, and guess who i find in the comments:

I used to think the berkley eggs were ridiculous, then I tried them, if you can get a natural drift I'm convinced that most trout will eat it. With the trout magnets you just twitch/jig them, drives the fish nuts, the jighead is shaped like a shad dart so they go all over the place instead of just up and down like normal jigheads. 4lb test max for trout magnets, 2 is better though.
