As stated above in this chapter, you want water that smaller in size, shallower, and runs slow. The rivers that are deep, wide, and fast are less productive when it comes to catching trout. If you start out at an area that is not optimum, travel upstream to see if you can find a spot that is more suitable.
The benefit of fishing in a larger lake, river, or stream is that trout are not as wary or easily spooked. Additionally, the larger body of water provides you with more fishing area. The downfall to that is that it also provides more shelter for the trout. When fishing larger bodies of water, you want to stick primarily with brighter spinners or those with a greater level of flash. This helps expand the area of attracting trout since they can see further.
