Fishing Conditions Ques.

I got a question, how would fishing conditions for trout change after a lake has been rained on for x amount of days?

 

I ask this because, my Grande Cache trip got pushed back by a week due to bad cold rainy weather...

My experience based on no scientific data is that the fishing improves after or during a rain. I am a nymph fisherman though.

 

My guess would be that the fresh oxygenated water produced by rain would improve the fishing.

 

I find my best days for fishing lakes occur when the weather is a mix of sun, rain and wind.

 

Again I really don't know if it is true but that has been my experience.

I'm not exactly sure, but my biggest 3 fish have come during a rain and slight chop on the water. I hope this holds true, because it's supposed to rain this weekend, or so I hear.

I'd agree - I've had reallly good days in the wind and whitecaps. HOT SUNNY days are IMHO the nicest to fish, and lousiest for the catch...

 

I think in the real world however, the fish feed daily - so if you can figure out what they're chewing on - you'll get em rain or shine.

My brother is always telling me that I seem to defy common logic. My biggest rainbow @ 24" was caught on a bright sunny day in mid summer and my biggest brown @ 22" was caught at high noon on a sunny spring day.

 

Go figure.. :blink:

The best way is to follow the barometer...if it starts to fall the fishing is good until it drops to a point and then the fish do not feed....same as the barometer goes up the fish start to bite.....i have followed the barometer for years and it is just about bang on....but in them words u have to know how much it falls or drops to figure out the fishing, so i guess in my best words would be is to follow it and write down your findings and u will come to your own conculsion.
