Trout Fishing Tips
Trout fishing is more difficult than fishing for panfish and other forms of fishing. That’s because trout are a wary fish and live in clear water where it is easy to spot approaching anglers. In flowing waters anglers need to approach from behind and use polarized sunglasses to spot trout before they detect a threat. We’ve put together a host of articles with tips to help your trout fishing. These are based on my own personal knowledge or that of our writing team, many of whom are passionate trout anglers on fly and lure.
Trout are a fun fish to catch on light tackle, whether that’s lure fishing gear or fly fishing. Usually six pound test line is sufficient for all but the biggest trout, and spin fishing reels in the 1000 or 2500 sizing with appropriately matched rods are all you need.
Our writing team have put together a series of guides to the right line, lures and tackle to use to land big trout.

For fly fishing anglers, a fly fishing rod between #3 and #6 weight are fine for most trout fishing situations.
Then you need to choose the right flies to tempt the trout. Our writing team have put together a range of article to help you catch more trout on fly tackle. I’ve written many of these myself as fly fishing is the main form of fishing that I like to do.
Our writing team love writing about trout fishing in their local waters. Below you’ll find a series of state-based trout fishing articles all written by local experts familiar with their home waters. They share their secrets on where to go to catch big trout.
