Trout Fishing Help

Many anglers would like help to catch either more or bigger trout. In this article, I'm going to reveal some tips that will help the average angler catch more trout and give them the help that they're looking for. Trout fishing isn't difficult as long as you have the proper information. The problem is that many anglers don't like to learn or try new things, such as the simple tips laid out in this article. No matter what type of fish you like to catch, there is no substitute for practice. The more time you can spend on the water fishing, the better angler you will become.

  • Use Light Line - For trout fishing, no fishing line larger than 6 pound test should be employed. I personally use and suggest 4 pound test, but 6 pound is tolerable. Anything larger than six pound test is complete overkill, and will cost you bites. Less bites obviously means less trout, so make sure your using nothing larger than 6 pound test for trout fishing.

  • Live Worms Are Great Trout Bait - One of the most effective trout baits is live worms. This is no secret; everyone knows that fish like worms. What most anglers don't realize is that fishing with live worms can be much more effective than they have ever imagined. How could this be? Simple, by using a set of gang hooks to present those live worms. You see, a set of gang hooks enables the angler to present a live worm in an outstretched and natural manner, rather than trying to "thread" a worm onto a single hook. The use of gang hooks can increase an angler's bite rate by up to 50%! The hooking and catching is up to you, but gang hooks and live worms will increase the amount of bites that you get.

  • Bottom Is Your Friend - This is especially true in river and stream situations. The bottom is your friend. The closer you can get your offering to the bottom, the better. As a matter of fact, bouncing any type of live bait (especially worms) off the bottom as it tumbles downstream is an incredibly effective trout catching technique. When fishing with any type of bait in rivers and/or streams, getting snagged is completely normal, and nothing to get concerned with.

  • Watch Your Hands - I don't mean actually "watching" your hands. I'm referring to the smells on your hands. Whatever scents that you have on your hands will transfer to your baits, and if these scents aren't natural, it will cost you bites. Trout have a very sensitive sense of smell, and if they detect unnatural smells, they won't bite. I always make a practice of rubbing my hands in either a handful of dirt or grass before fishing. This helps eliminate any unnatural odors that might be on my hands.

These tips should give you some of the trout fishing help that you were looking for. They are so simple that many anglers overlook such tips. Fishing doesn't have to be complicated. Remember what Steven Wright said of us anglers (no matter what type of fish we prefer), "There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot." Let's all try to avoid the latter part of that quote.
