"Winter is my favorite season to fish for trout on a fly rod. It’s challenging, but the rewards are there. It’s quiet, barren and peaceful out there in the winter woods. And my favorite memories are of days under soft falling snow, where my boot tracks are the only ones in and the only ones out.
But winter trout fishing isn’t easy, either. And through the years, I’ve learned these lessons the hard way.
Over time, I realized that trout can be more predictable in the winter than in any other season. They lock into a pattern and stay there, day after day and week after week. My fly selection becomes limited in the winter, making choices easier. My range of productive techniques are also more narrow, providing me with the confidence to focus on a handful of tactics and make targeted adjustments in my approach.
The winter system is something I look forward to each year. It’s a chance to simplify and fish hard. It’s also a chance to catch some of the largest trout in the river.
