Visibility

As mentioned, with lots of practice and some patience, you can learn to spot trout underneath the water. This may be a flash, shadow, or slight movement. Even if you are trout fishing in clear water, do not expect to see an entire trout. Instead, look for various portions of the fish and then use your visualization skills to identify the trout. For example, if you see a fin and tail, you want to take the shape and identifying marks and put them together to determine the type of trout associated with those characteristics.

To be successful at this, you want to position yourself where there will not be any water glare or environmental reflection that could stop you from visualizing such as shadows caused by trees or shrubs. Instead, use the shadows to your advantage to help cut glare by standing or sitting so the sun is located directly behind you or slightly behind. Obviously, water on clear days with no wind and slow-moving currents are the best conditions for seeing underneath.
