the things i like about winter fishing are the late starts after a hearty breakfast and the fact that every single fish is precious. every one is a bonus.

hot sweet tea back in the van with the heater on and watching the snow fall is pretty special too.

especially with a wee nip of Jamesons in it.


All of what he said!

Last year was my first winter fishing. I remember being out in Dec with an easy snowfall and there was just something very peaceful about it even tho I was on a creek that is so often a zoo.

Explored a brookie creek in the Poconos in Jan after a snow and that was a complete disaster, beautiful, but a disaster none the less due to my map reading skills and access points .. amongst a host of other issues.

yeah, winter is not the time to scout. i do that in the summer when its too hot to fish.

In the winter, i never leave the car without a handheld GPS AND my 'phone, plus my torch and a firestarter knife. The car always has a towel, dry clothes, a medivac blanket, torch, shovel etc. in it all winter plus plenty of gas.

another advantage of winter fishing is that the streamside vines/thorns can be navigated more easliy opening up pools that may not have seen a fly all year - and as pointed out on various letort threads, those streams with sodden boggy banks become hard as rock come December.

It's also cool to see the animal tracks in the woods and on the banks and for your footprints to be the only ones on the way back.
