Finding Elusive Summer Trout (PART 2 OF TROUT FISHING SERIES)

Summer Trout by Sean O’Brien

As the spring melts into the summer months, trout seem not only harder to find, but harder to catch at all.  Trout thrive in cold water, rich in dissolved-oxygen, and like any creature they get sluggish when they don’t get the oxygen they need.  Colder water is more likely to be found in streams and rivers, and accordingly those are more than likely to contain the elusive summer trout than a lake or pond.  This isn’t to say trout can’t be found everywhere in their range, but there are most certainly more and less effective places, times and techniques when fishing summer trout.  To help improve your odds of catching them in the heat of the summer, we’ve provided the following tips.

With Summer on its Way, It’s Time for a Venerable (Though Much Maligned) Tradition

by Sean OBrien

Opening day is a ritual in many families.  It’s the official turning point when winter changes over to spring.  The birds are out, the water is still cool, and the trout are ready.  Bass are beginning to spawn and sit on the beds, and lakes and streams and rivers begin to swell from the ice and snow melt.  It’s beautiful, and calming, and very peaceful, and all of that can be changed in 5 seconds by a child who doesn’t want to fish.
