INTRODUCTION TO TROUT FISHING
- Trout fishing is a sport for anyone to get involved with. You dont have to run out and get a boat and can get less expensive tackle than you realize. Some people like to pursue them spinning or spin-casting outfit some people like to tack a wack with a box of hooks, some night crawlers and a pair of hip boots.

- You won't be an expert over night but will you can catch your first trout and learn from there! From that point on you just need to go fishing and learn from your experiences.
There are many species of trout throughout the US and well just give you a quick discription of three. They are the brook trout, the brown trout, and the rainbow trout.
Brook trout (the only native of the three) thrive in smaller streams of good water quality, occupying pools and riffles that seem quite shallow when compared to the pools brown trout frequent. In-stream vegetation provides adequate cover for the brookie. They are very aggressive and relatively easy to catch. They normally are smaller than browns and rainbows, a 14 inch brook trout is a trophy. In large and medium sized streams you will find them near the headwaters and in major springs.
Brown trout (from Europe) are the most abundant and most sought after trout. They are wary and must be stalked with patience. Your shadow on the water will "put them down" for an hour or two. They require overhanging cover like undercut banks or fallen trees. They will be found in the deepest pools, moving into the shallows (riffles) to feed in early morning and late afternoon. They feed actively on emergent insects like caddis flies and mayflies. Brown trout get larger than rainbows and brookies; 14 to 18 inch fish are common and browns over 25 inches have beentaken in the southeast.
Rainbow trout (a west coast native) do not commonly reproduce in many places they are fishable and must be maintained by stocking. They occupy the fast, big water of the whitewater streams (and others), utilizing different habitat than the brown trout. Famous for their acrobatics (tail-walking), rainbows will give any angler quite a thrill.
- Many good trout anglers make fishing more of a challenge by using a fly rod or fishing wild trout in crystal clear streams. Some anglers spend many days trying to catch a trophy. You may want to get into this type of trout fishing, but for now we are going to stick with basics.
