Water temperature, flows, and food sources all determine where you will find trout.
The first time I ever heard the phrase “think like a fish," was during a brutally hot and summer afternoon in August on a small Eastern Washington farm river where the trout populations are known to be mildly bad to vacant, not to be confused with sterile.
Suddenly I heard my buddy Chris holler. Looking upstream he was bent into a nice brown trout. Crouched over the fish as Chris let it go, I asked him how he’d seemingly done the impossible. “I hadn’t even spotted a fish all afternoon,” he said. He pointed over to the far bank where a few caddis had begun dancing in the shade beneath clumps of overhanging grass; a cool lie protected from both predators and the hot sun. “But then, there it was.”
With over twenty years of fly fishing under my belt, and more than ten years of guiding, I’ve never found a better way of looking at a river.
