Spring is for trout fishing

troutSpring is the time for temperatures dropping and flowers blooming. For avid anglers though, it’s the time for trout fishing.

Known as finicky creatures, trouts are at their element during the Springtime in West Virginia. With the temperatures rising, the water is neither too hot nor too cold for the fish. It’s the time when they are starting to get more active, as do their prey. As the insects hatch, as do the trout to partake in a veritable buffet in the waters. Fishermen would see the fish breaking the surface of the water as they chase after their meal.

Mid-April is the start of the fishing season, with the water levels just right for wading — not as high as March with the snow melting from the mountains. The season continues throughout May and tapering off by June.
