Fishing Tips For Trout - Trout Fishing Tips For Any Angler

Fishing for trout isn't a difficult task, especially when you're dealing with small inexperienced fish. Trout become even easier to catch when you're dealing with stocked fish that have been planted by your fish and game department. Trout fishing becomes more enjoyable (and difficult) when you start targeting larger more experienced trout. This is especially true in river and stream scenarios.

In this article I'm going to provide some simple fishing tips for catching trout, trout fishing tips that most any angler can put into practice. They key to any fishing tip is to put it into practice. As you do this you begin to learn all of the little nuances that make any fishing tip worthwhile. Fishing for trout is no different than any other species of fish, it's just that many times your surroundings are much more solitary and beautiful when fishing for trout.

Most of these trout fishing tips were taught to me by my best friends' father, a man I always considered a trout fishing "master". This man was able to catch very large trout from heavily fished waters in Pennsylvania and these tips come directly from his trout fishing knowledge. When it comes to fishing trips for trout the tips listed below are as good as you will find.

1. Free Your Hands Of Unnatural Scents - This simple trout fishing tip actually applies to all fishing, but especially trout fishing. Trout have very sensitive noses and if a seventeen plus inch trout detects any unnatural scents it is much less apt to bite your offering. This is why making sure that your hands are free of unnatural scents (which will transfer to your bait) is so important. If you want tp catch more and bigger trout, rub your hands in a handful of dirt before baiting up to remove any unnatural scents that might be present.
2. Use Light Line - Many trout fishermen (especially beginners) use fishing line that's entirely too heavy. I personally use four pound test for all of my trout fishing. Six pound test is serviceable as well, but any line heavier than this is probably overkill in most trout fishing scenarios. The bottom line when it comes to fishing for trout is this; the lighter your line the more bites your will get, it's as simple as that.
3. Use Effective Hooks - When it comes to trout fishing your hooks are extremely important, both their sharpness and their size. First off your always want to use hooks that are as sharp as possible. This means changing your hooks often or sharpening them often. Many fish are "missed" because of dull hooks. Secondly, many trout fishermen use hooks that are entirely too large. A good remedy to hooks that are too large is a set of gang-hooks. Gang hooks are simply a pair of small hooks tied in tandem, which enables a much more natural bait presentation.

These simple fishing tips for trout are highly effective. I realize how simple they are, but their simplicity, I think, is what makes them so effective. Many times it's the simplest things in life that make the biggest difference.
