Make no mistake it can be a great art to learn the correct stream trout fishing tips. It is sometimes amazing to see how big trout can hide in small streams. I have had several pleasant experiences where i saw the best trout anglers catch huge trout in very small streams.

It is the experience of catching trout in streams that can be so very rewarding, however in order to be successful in catching big trout in streams an angler must learn to read all kinds of fishing streams, where the big ones hide. When it comes to the correct way of reading trout streams, there are some very important tips to take notice of.

 The following tips are very important. Trout will be constantly on the lookout for protein rich food, and they do not want to work hard to catch their food. Trout are also constantly on the lookout for highly oxygenated water and for protection against other predators in the water and the air above them. Keep these important tips in mind when you read a trout stream to understand the situation better. It is important to understand your prey.

It sounds hard to understand but you should try to understand how your prey think, move, eat and live. Trout are basically almost blind when the sun shines on the water at certain times of the day during spring and autumn. It is therefore very important that you choose the right time to fish as it is to your advantage as the trout's vision is more limited and it won’t be easy for them to see you when you approach them.

Your chances will then be much better getting closer to your prey, and easier to fish all together. Although it is always a good idea to use light fishing tackle, it is even more important to use extra light fishing tackle during autumn, as trout are then much more cautious as a result of small streams that flow very low and slow.

Trout swim upstream because usually they wait for the current to bring food to them. Therefore, it is a good idea to fish upstream where the trout are with their backs to you. The bait on your hook will then appear much more naturally.

It is very important to keep the above tips in mind and apply them when you fish for trout in streams. These tips can help you to be more successful in your efforts and give you lots of pleasure to land that big trophy trout that most trout fishermen only dream about.
