I've enjoyed all of it, but my favorite remains a peaceful, lonely mountain stream looking for trout. Even sturgeon. My favorite is the Crooked River upstream from Prineville. Overhand casting is also possible when needed. If you catch a trout in a hole, try it again! They can be challenging unless you know the tricks. Edwin Brown from Oregon, USA on February 01, 2011: Really nice hub! Make sure they have the trout … I wouldn't dare to show up fishing anywhere without the proper license.... Dan Harmon (author) from Boise, Idaho on October 27, 2011: Those surroundings are half the reason I'm there; as you can see from the hub I seldom find monsters in the areas I fish in. Thank you. Your hub brought back many great memories of my youth fishing with my Dad which I will always cherish. If you enjoy nature, camping or fishing then read on; I will introduce you to some trout fishing techniques you probably haven't considered before. The sinker will sit on the bottom and your inflated worm will float two feet from the bottom, keeping it out of the weeds and away from the crawfish. With a 10 foot pole it is quite easy to reach out 20 feet or more and by wading in the stream you can reach almost anywhere. Dan Harmon (author) from Boise, Idaho on December 07, 2011: Perhaps it is a man sport (although my daughter-n-law and grandaughter enjoy it, as does my mother and sister) but that's all right - I'm male! I've had incredibly violent fights in a small hole only to return immediately and catch 3, 4 or 5 more out of the same hole. Tight lines to all. Great hub! I haven't done much saltwater; some for bluefish in the Chesapeake Bay and a little for salmon off the Oregon coast but that's about it. Dan Harmon (author) from Boise, Idaho on September 19, 2017: Of course. These lakes offer an amazing Trout angling opportunity that can rival productive rivers and streams, as their forage and climate often produce larger and more abundant populations. A lighter leader might be nice and increase the "feel," but there are inevitably a lot of snags on the bottom of a moving stream that you can easily pull off of with a little heavier leader. You are free to enjoy all three eco-types, as I do, but the real gems in the park are those streams inhabited by "natives," alone. Jeremy Richmond from Hubbard on August 30, 2019: I've noticed both natural and stocked trout in my area seem to prefer minnows to other live bait offerings but fish using much the same presentation. I have heard a lot about some fantastic mountain streams. Mae Williams from USA on December 06, 2011: I was surprised to find you like fishing. It's a different kind of fun, though, and I wouldn't trade it for my own little mountain stream. If you wade in most of the other rivers you take a chance of encountering stumps, snags, cottonmouth moccasins, not to mention, alligators! I enjoy fishing as well. However, it’s important to adapt the size and style of your jig depending on the type of water you are fishing in. We get a few brookies around here, but mostly it's rainbow. Brown Trout can switch from life in a hatchery to that in a stream and easily adapt to a diet of natural food items. Nearly all of my fishing is in small streams; between wading along both banks I seldom need to cast out more than 20' or so and the fly tackle gives me more control in the shorter casts around brush, rocks and logs in the water. Polarized sunglasses are a must, and make sure they are polarized. When the fish bites—and only experience will tell you what is a bite, as opposed to a bump as the when the hook or its weight passes over a rock on the bottom—give a sharp tug upwards on the pole to set the hook. - Agree on the license 100%! I grew up fishing for native brookies and brown trout in small New England streams and rivers mainly in CT. Like you said the peace and serentiy of the remote streams was as much enjoyable as pulling a few native brookies from the stream. I grew up on venison and elk, but haven't hunted in years and years. The longer rod also gives more control in many situations of directing the bait around underwater obstacles. Anglers can choose from 2,989 trout streams stretching more than 13,175.82 miles, up from 2,677 streams and 9,562 miles in … The trout fishing techniques I will cover today are aimed at those fishermen plying their art in small rivers and streams: people who enjoy simply being in nature and will enjoy their day along a clear cold mountain stream whether or not they actually catch fish. I want a stream where chest waders are a waste of money, and even hip waders are not a great deal of value; I can usually find a wide, shallow area to cross. Cool hub. If you throw your line in and it travels downstream 20 feet in 10 to 20 seconds, that water speed is about right. I've done a little trout fishing in the Blue Ridge Mountains, but we don't really like to eat trout. Thanks for the article Dan. I've been trying my luck at a mountain stream in this village in Himachal Pradesh, India. Have taken some big trout there.
