Yes, he earns bragging rights for stupidity, and may even catch fish, but it isn't fun in my book. If it's too cold to go out early in the morning, wait for a while! If it's raining cats and dogs, sit it out for an hour! The purpose of fishing is enjoyment, or should be, not merely catching fish. If catching fish is all you want, go to the grocery store, jam a hook into one and drag it to the cashier. Lie about where you got it and no one will be the wiser. If you ever get out Idaho way, check out Ponderosa State Park; there is some excellent trout fishing in the Payette River along the road there.

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.
Good article and great tips! Very good and interesting article. Living in the Ozarks of North Arkansas I spend a lot of time on White River, using a variety of methods for trout fishing. A favorite is kayak drifting when river level is low. I have never considered nightcrawlers and short casts with a fly rod. I'm thinking this may work well in the kayak, now anxious to try it out. Great article thanks, I live right outside of Philadelphia and fish creeks and streams that are PA stocked water.
It's difficult to use fly rod here cause of the overhanging trees and close quarters streams. But there's nothing better than getting away from the city, standing in a stream and catch some trout. Or not! Thanks for the article Dan. I'm really looking forward to trout fishing over here in Central PA. I like to use the crimp on weights as you suggested although I don't break out my fly rod as much as I would like.

I don't know if it's true or not but it very well could be. I do remember sitting in a small stream in SW Oregon and playing with a crawdad swimming in a small pool while thinking I should get out the fishing pole. That crawdad was living in the same water I thought would be perfect for trout. Of course. I just find that long fly pole useful in controlling the bait, in putting it just where I want it. A casting rod will get it much further, of course, but lacks the control at closer areas. Hey Dan, this article is very informative and just what I needed for a starter course on stream fishing.
I've been trying my luck at a mountain stream in this village in Himachal Pradesh, India. They do have trout here and I did manage to snag one out of what seems to be beginner's luck, attempts to get the same results today failed and I see why after I read this article.

I am so excited to fish in Montana this year. I have heard a lot about some fantastic mountain streams. I typically fish close to home in the Rogue River where you will find brown and rainbow trout along with steelhead runs twice a year. There's nothing better than a day spent on a stream with an old fly rod.
Just can't get enough of it. Great hub! I am in Idaho fishing the Big Wood, silver creek and trail creek. I enjoy the articles on Hub. They are very helpful. I have been fly fishing for many years but my 10 year old has just picked up the hobby and she loves to research everything online. Plenty of info on hub. Tight lines to all. I really enjoyed reading your article on worm fishing with a fly rod. I live and work in a largish country town about 60kms northeast of Melbourne in Victoria.
There's quite a few local small creeks that hold brown trout and I like to use a fly rod with worms to catch them. Much like how you describe in your article. The fly rod is great for casting or poking a worm into a tight spot that would be almost impossible with a spinning rod and reel. The soft action fly rod also really cushions the trouts fight. 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 was surprised to find you like fishing. I always thought it was a man sport. I love water. I love eating fish. Thanks for sharing. I've fished a little in both the Atlantic and Pacific and enjoyed it immensely. It's a different kind of fun, though, and I wouldn't trade it for my own little mountain stream. Guess I just want both! Yep, I've forgotten and left my license at camp when heading down the river. It makes for a shaky day, always looking over my shoulder and I usually find some excuse to go back to camp and collect it.
Great hub. I enjoy fishing as well. I do mostly ocean living in California, when I have the time that is.

I wouldn't dare to show up fishing anywhere without the proper license 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. Small mountain streams just don't support large fish very well - they move downstream to larger rivers and lakes. I love the beauty and solitude, though. I very often see deer and other wildlife, while finding few people. Larger rivers can be wall to wall people, and lakes are full of other boaters and jet skiiers. Neither one is my idea of a quiet day communing with nature. I don't really like any fatty fish.
I eat trout sometimes, but I much prefer grouper, flounder, seatrout, redfish, cod, and sharks. I hate salmon, and freshwater trout tastes similar to me. Trout fishing, however, is fun, and it's usually done in beautiful surroundings! 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. But how can you turn up your nose at trout? One or two, caught at daybreak, make a wonderful breakfast with some eggs to go with it. Cool hub. I'm an avid angler, but I prefer saltwater fishing.
I've done a little trout fishing in the Blue Ridge Mountains, but we don't really like to eat trout. Have you done much saltwater fishing? Voted this great hub up! It is a type of fishing I really enjoy. My son has just purchased a boat, however, so I suppose I'll have to learn to lake fish now. We get a few brookies around here, but mostly it's rainbow. We have bass and other warmer water fish in the lakes, along with some trout, but I much prefer a quiet mountain stream.
Excellent hub! The fishing for trout around me in the northeast is equally fun on small streams however we mostly have brook and brown trout rather than rainbows. I just made a trip to washington state a few weeks ago to fish for rainbows and cutthroats and it was a blast. I am fortunate enough to have all kinds of fishing near me except salt water. Bass and other warm water fish, trout, both lakes and streams. Even sturgeon. My favorite, though, is a small cold mountain stream looking for native trout. Excellent and informative hub and enjoyed the pics as well.
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 also fished lakes, ponds, farm ponds, and salt water.
It is a passion and a great way to spend time with friends and family. Living in Dallas now I fish mainly lakes for crappie and various bass and make the occassional trip to the gulf to fly fish for red fish.
Your hub brought back many great memories of my youth fishing with my Dad which I will always cherish. Thank you. I grew up in the northeast corner of Oregon; that's where I learned to trout fish. It was all small mountain stream. Although I've heard stories of Crooked River fishing and always wanted to go there, I never have.
I like the fly tackle for the longer rod and floating fly line. 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. The longer rod also gives more control in many situations of directing the bait around underwater obstacles.
I get a better idea of exactly where my bait is with the floating line. Not perfect; 4 or 5 feet of leader gives the bait lots of room to move around, but better than if I couldn't see the line at all. Really nice hub! I live next door to you, in Oregon, but on the western side of the state.

For good trout fishing, I go to central Oregon. We've got some dandy streams. My favorite is the Crooked River upstream from Prineville. Have taken some big trout there. I was surprised that you use fly fishing tackle for bait fishing. Never thought of that. I like spinning gear. What advantage do you see with your setup? Thanks for the compliment. I grew up on venison and elk, but haven't hunted in years and years. I doubt I'll ever go back to hunting, but I surely enjoy my trout fishing. I go trout fishing all the time! Love it. It is now time to get ready for hunting. I have fished for bluegill, crappie, bass and some salt water.
I've tried for salmon, steelhead and a couple of times for sturgeon. I've enjoyed all of it, but my favorite remains a peaceful, lonely mountain stream looking for trout. Great article, voted up. I always loved trout fishing. I fish in Bennett springs, Missouri. The water is 55 degrees in the summer. In fact, we went down 2 weeks ago! As a fly fisherman you have the equipment; if you can find a suitable stream give my odd and unorthodox methodology a try.
It's a great way to spend a day. As a fly fisherman mayself and an avid trout fishing dude, your Hub is Excellent and most Informative. Enjoyed reading this hub. Thanks, Randy. I've fished a little in Georgia around Brunswick many years ago. You're right - I'm not sure I would care to wade around much, especially further south. Do try to get to a mountain stream, though. Perhaps NW of Atlanta? It's worth the trip. Always wanted to go trout fishing in a mountain stream. The closest I ever came was fly fishing for shoal bass in the flint river here in Georgia.
If you wade in most of the other rivers you take a chance of encountering stumps, snags, cottonmouth moccasins, not to mention, alligators! But I still plan to go sometime! Enjoyed the great info!

Every time a kid looks into grandpa's box he'll find snelled baitholders and some form of an inline spinner. If someone wants to catch fish I'll sell them some worms and an inline spinner. Once they're hooked on the spinners I'll bump em up to the soft plastics and actual spinnerbaits. I bet a lot of you did too. That has nothing to do with its effectiveness though.
31 Essential Tips for Fly Fishing for Trout
Dont let them fool ya they catch anything. I have a fishing buddy that laughs at me for using Mepps and Bluefox inline spinners. He thinks that they are too easy and I need to work harder for my bass. I am dead set on proving him wrong. It's also ironic that he does that consider the senko a beginner lure considering it's effectiveness. I think that he is just out to give me crap. They're not my go to for size, but they are a great lure to beat the skunk. If the fishing is tough, spinners and grubs are clutch. Even guys like Ike talk about a "beat the skunk box" that isn't complete without 2.
When I was stating out I received a bit of advice from an older guy I met at a local pond. He said that an inline spinner will catch anything that swims, but that I should be prepared to lose "a couple a dozen of them" while I was learning to cast and steer them back in. He recommended buying the cheapest ones I could and fishing them in a stump field until I could steer them through without snagging.
Where to Go to Fish for Trout
I took his advice and did loose quite a few, but I began catching a ton of sunfish once I learned how to work them slowly. I have never caught a LMB on one, but have caught a bunch of schoolie stripers on larger saltwater spinners. They are one of my favorite lures to throw and I should really get them in the rotation more often. I do a bunch of wet wading for smallmouths. The inline spinner is one of my go to search baits. One of the first bass I ever caught was on a Panther Martin Holographic spinner. Spinners are one of those "works on everything" lures that kind of got stuck with a "trout" tag that it's never been able to shake.
