Stream Fishing Pointers

  1. 1. Fishing in streams is learned through practice. While you will not need to use tools from brands like RaymarineAustralia, it has its own set of difficulties. Fish in streams will behave differently from deep sea fish. Likewise, you will need specific kinds of rods and baits for river or stream fishing. While they may be the same in concept,there are many differences between deep sea fishing and stream fishing in practice. The following are some things that you can apply when you are learning the sport of river or stream fishing.
  2. 2. If you want to be able to catch fish effectively, you must literally get your feet wet. Wading will allow you to spotfish easier, and will give you a good position to catch fish. During the spawning season, fish swim back to their oldspawning grounds. They often travel upstream or against the current. To catch them, you need to cast your line behind them. This way, you will be able to catch them directly ahead of you easily.
  3. 3. Fish can easily be spooked by your movement. A rod being cast or your arm moving about can easily be spotted by a fish. Always be careful when you are moving about in a stream or river. As much as possible, you need to keepyour movements to a minimum. Likewise, make sure that you keep your shadow away from the water. Hide behind boulders or rocks in the water so that you movement are not easily seen. Likewise, if you want to catch fisheffectively, travel or cast your line in moving water where the fish will not spot your line or motion easily.
  4. 4. River or stream fishing is often a matter of sight fishing. Unlike with deep sea fishing that requires RaymarineAustralia equipment, you can spot fish moving in shallow parts of a river or stream. On the other hand, while this can make fishing easier, it can be also a disadvantage.While you can see the fish, the fish will be able to spot you as well. You need to be careful when you are entering a fishing spot. Make sure that you enter the water downstream. This way, you will not scare the fish at a fishing spot.
  5. 5. If you are unable to catch a fish in the area, move toward other places. Make sure that you travel in the water. Always remember that river fishing is a matter of percentages; the more places you cast your line, the greater your chances of catching a fish.
