Author Topic: fishing in weather

When I go fishing I find that when it is stormy or about to rain the fish bite the best. What type of weather do you like to fish in?

I think right after a brisk rain is best for me. It seems as though the raindrops pummel any surface insects under the water where they become suspended, creating a fish feeding frenzy for the next 30 - 45 min. That's my theory anyway, it could also have something to do with temperature... I think a very little bit of a breeze is nice as well, disturbing the surface of the water with a light riffle. You go into stealth mode and the fish can't see your boat as good.

I should add that I am speaking about lake fishing, particular trolling flys. For river fishing it may be similar I don't know, though I would imagine overcast is usually better than sunny.

Do you think that fishing may be better when there is a low pressure in the area because the lac of pressure on the body can cuze them to be able to eat more
