Default Re: Small streams

Well, fishing upstream is what i prefer if possible, but that is the way I was taught. I was always told that if you fish downstream you cause aggregate to drift down which will spook the trout more than a carefully placed line. The trout in turn will drift downstream which will alert other trout and it just snowballs. I was also taught that when fishing upstream try to cover the stream a few feet at a time from side to side. That way you reach trout one at a time instead of fishing across the stream and alerting the entire spot. Of course this is all in theory. Im no expert. Ive caught fish both ways, but more so when heading upstream.
Theres my two cents..........
