Fishing for Rainbow Trout in Texas: Tips and Techniques

Rainbow trout are a popular species of freshwater fish in Texas, known for their hard fighting and delicious taste. Here are some tips and techniques for fishing for rainbow trout in Texas:

  1. Fish in streams and rivers: Rainbow trout are commonly found in cold, fast-moving streams and rivers in Texas, particularly in the Hill Country and Trans-Pecos regions. Look for areas with deep pools and runs, and fish the edges where the current is slower.
  2. Use lightweight gear: Rainbow trout are typically caught using lightweight gear, such as spinning or fly fishing gear. The lighter gear allows for more natural presentations and better sensitivity when feeling for bites.
  3. Fish early or late in the day: Rainbow trout tend to be more active early in the morning and late in the evening, when the water is cooler and the light is low.
  4. Pay attention to water temperature: Rainbow trout prefer cold water, and will avoid areas with water temperatures over 70°F. Check the water temperature regularly and focus your fishing efforts in the colder water.
  5. Use natural baits and lures: Rainbow trout are attracted to natural baits and lures, such as worms, insects, and small crankbaits. Try different types of baits and lures to see what works best in your area.
  6. Focus on structure: Rainbow trout are attracted to structure, such as rocks, logs, and drop-offs. Focus your fishing efforts near these areas.
  7. Stay stealthy: Rainbow trout are easily spooked, so it’s important to approach the water quietly and to stay low to the ground when fishing.

By following these tips and techniques, you can increase your chances of catching rainbow trout in Texas. Good luck and happy fishing!

Here Comes Deer Season!

3 October 2020 is opening day for Archery Deer Season! For many of us, the preparations started many months ago with clearing spots for food plots, pulling maintenance on feeders and getting camp ready for the next year. I know that work and commitments at home may have kept you from being able to get out to your hunting properties so time is closing in on you. Might I recommend for you to prioritize your work with safety being at the top of your list. Check your ladder stands for security. Replace old brittle straps that have not been replaced for the year, ensure the tree that it is attached to is still green and sturdy. Nothing can ruin a hunt faster than an accident that could have been prevented from happening in the first place. Think of all the “what if’s” you can to have a safe environment to hunt in. Good Luck to you all and I look forward to reading your recommendations and good fortunes in the near future.
