Step 1: Fish in water rich in oxygen Fish in water rich in oxygen. Trout prefer to feed in oxygen-rich locations -- in current and riffle areas, cold water springs, and deeper water. Tip In warmer water, trout will seek fast currents or riffles because the oxygen levels are higher there. In cooler streams where oxygen levels are higher, they feed in slow-moving pools or current edges. Step 2: Fish in the morning and evening Fish in the early morning and late evening. The lower temperatures during these hours correspond to increased oxygen levels and greater feeding activity. Step 3: Tread lightly Tread lightly as you approach a stream, and don't walk in the water. Trout are very sensitive to the pressure waves generated by footsteps -- both in and out of the water. Step 4: Use appropriate tackle Match your tackle to the stream conditions and size of trout you are seeking. Trout have good eyesight, and they will avoid a conspicuous fishing line. Step 5: Cast upstream Cast upstream and allow your bait to move downstream with the current. Trout face into the current, sometimes behind rocks, as they wait for food to drift by. Tip Trout move around a great deal in lakes. Planted trout may travel in schools rather than dispersing. Step 6: Use a long rod with live bait Use a long rod and live bait. This reduces line drag and allows your bait to move more rapidly along the bottom of the stream. Did You Know? The world's largest trout is found in the remote rivers of Mongolia and can exceed 5 feet.
