Night fishing

Recommended Posts

You can fish till 11pm for stream trout. Some real big browners are caught after dark, but casting can be a pain. I don't do it unless I'm realy familiar with the stream.

Night fishing for trout can be outstanding.

If you try it be sure to learn a strech of river very well before going out.

Don't forget to check the regs. book for the state you'll be fishing in. Every state has different regs.

Yeah, night fishing for trout definitely has it's rewards. But can also be kind of dangerous. One thing that is neat about night fishing is that the river becomes "alive". The night creatures start moving around and making noices more often, and it can actually be quite spooky at times. Skunks, muskrats, raccoons, bats over the river...all are quite common at night. I've actually had a bat attack my yard strike indicater. I also know someone who's actually caught a bat on a tiny fly. Try bigger streamers and mayfly immitations. If spin fishing, try rapalas and panther martins.

I'll be there fishtrap II. I'm not much of a trout fisherman but I enjoy all fishing and it's always fun camping. I'll be in the silver toyota 4 runner with the DU sticker on the back.

Yeah, like so haad said, watch them bats. I caught one once. I don't know who was more surprised, me or the bat flying around my head - attached to my fly.

Can you imagine the trout it would take to snarf up a bat? Is it even legal to fish for bats? To use bats for bait?

Interesting questions. Actually, I can imagine a trout like that. Doesn't mean it exists, but he sure keeps me awake at night.

Now to perfect my fluttering bat fly pattern...

In Wisconsin people hang lanterns over the side (not leagal in some states) and fish in lakes at night for Trout It works great and it's a blast to see the fish swimming under the boat they are so fast.

Does anyone here know WHY fishing for trout closes at 11PM? I have no problem with the regulation, but I guess I do not have any clue as to why this regulation exists.

    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?
