Participating in a rainbow trout fishing game, can be one of the most enjoyable experiences you have this summer. As one of the feistiest fish in Canada, the rainbow trout is known for its toughness and is also one of the more tasty meals you will ever eat. Today we will be looking at one of the fishing world’s greatest species, the rainbow trout.
As we mentioned earlier, the rainbow trout is one of the more challenging fish to catch. Known for its high jumps and sturdy grip, the rainbow trout makes many fly anglers feel as if they have been in the ring for 12 rounds with the champ; by the time they are finally able to reel them out of the water. While many trout anglers use circle lures, and dead bait, many more experienced anglers have found that a simple fly rod and live bait tends to be the most effective tools to capturing more than one rainbow trout.
What’s perhaps most intriguing, but also most infuriating, is that the rainbow trout changes its tendencies at a moment’s notice. Meaning to say, you may have success using one angling technique one day, but that same technique won’t necessarily be as effective on a different day. Furthermore, the rainbow trout changes its pattern as the fishing season progresses.
For instance, at the start of the season in April and May, you may not even have to leave the dock, as the rainbow trout will gravitate inshore to catch their food. However, in the summer from June to end of August, you may have to walk in the lake and catch the trout using a fly rod. Then making matters more intriguing, from September until the end of trout season in November, you will have to use circle lures and live baits to attract the trout to your fishing line.
