Re: Where are all the fish
I personally like the old stuff better. You can still hunt with a bow and arrow, you can still fish with a fiberglass fly rod, and I'm just about positive that the fish have not evolved so much in the last 50 years that they are not still in the slow water near the faster water this time of year.
Some things I have learned
cold water, fish slow water, or get deep into the pools.
Never miss an opportunity to fish a seam.
Fish like places where there is protection from predators and a ready food supply, without having to fight the current too much.
In lakes, find and fish weedbeds and dropoffs, if the water is cold, slow down the retrieve.
I still like the books prospecting for trout by Tom Rosenbauer, and the orvis fly fishing guide isn't bad either.
