If you’re anything like me, there are few things better than pulling on your waders for a fishing trip on a small river or stream. The sound of the water, the smell of the air, just being in the presence of Nature, I’m not sure what draws me to small river and stream fishing, but the point is I love it. In this article I’m going to outline some tips and techniques that will help you become much more successful when fishing in small rivers and streams.
The first thing to discuss is the clothing you wear. When fishing in and around small river and streams it’s very important not to “stand out”. The fish in these types of waterways are very cognizant of their surroundings and if they notice you, they are much less apt to bite. In fact, you can easily “spook” an entire area fairly easily which means that nothing will bite. For this reason, you want to make sure that you wear drab clothing that doesn’t make you stick out like a sore thumb. When fishing in small river and/or streams, don’t wear “loud” clothing.
