5 NO-FAIL STRATEGIES FOR CREEKS






Fish the waters edge first then work your way further in. The edge of the water might be where the fish are. Sometimes Trout will stick next to the banks and avoid swifter water.


Look for interruptions in the flow of the water like rocks or logs. Fish will hang out behind places like this and wait for the flow to bring in food.

Avoid popular access spots to the creek. When it comes to creek fishing the road less traveled is the way to go. Look for hard to get to areas and find a way in.

Small waterfalls are a goldmine for Trout. Try to fish under the waterfall instead of away from it.

Leave plenty of slack line when fishing small holes or breaks in the creek. Sometimes a fish will be coming from out of nowhere fast and hit your bait. You’ll want to give him a little line to run.

     Use these tips on the creek and you’re sure to have a great time. Leave a comment and tell me about your experience.

  1. Great strategies!! I also find that if fish are going to hit it happens fairly quick once you've chosen your spot. If I don't get a bite in one location with in a few minutes I move on. "Working" the creek like this I cover a lot of ground and catch a lot more fish!
