How To Catch Spawning Rainbow Trout

Published

on

There is no question that Rainbow Trout are a fascinating and beautiful fish to try to catch.

Naturally, ask any angler, and chances are they will have a litany of strategies to use in order to try to catch this elusive example.

Such options as using baits and lures, trying out a variety of strategies on a given day to see what they respond to, and allowing for their eyesight are all good steps to catching as many Rainbows as possible.

However, some individuals also like to take advantage of catching the Rainbow trout when they are spawning. Moreover, even if you aren’t intentionally going after the Rainbow Trout when they are spawning, you should still be aware of their habits while they are spawning simply to adjust for catching them. Here are some things to consider:

Be aware that ethics are involved in catching Rainbow Trout while they are spawning. 

If you are new to the game, you will quickly learn that there is a heavy debate over whether you should even attempt to catch fish at all when they are spawning. This goes for Rainbow Trout enthusiasts as well. Some say absolutely not, while others say absolutely, and still others will say yes, but with some conditions attached. For those who go with the third option when it comes to catching Rainbows during their spawning times, here are some of the strategies they use to have a clean conscience: 

Hey FISHMONGER – make sure to check out my FISHING RESOURCES page.

Have a plan made up ahead of time for any picture fish you might encounter. 

If you land the Rainbow Trout of a lifetime and you have to throw it back without being able to take a picture of it, that would be a shame. However, if you have to choose between throwing the fish back right away or scrambling to get your camera ready to take a picture, you should definitely throw the fish back without a picture. This is because catching a trout is a very traumatic experience for them, and seconds count.

This is why if you think you are going to catch a picture fish, you and your buddies should have a plan in place ahead of time so that you can still take a picture of your fish and still be able to throw them back as quickly as possible. 

Do your best not to mishandle the fish. Trout are delicate.

Along these same lines, whether the fish you catch is a picture fish or not, you should do your best to avoid mishandling them at all. This means you should remove any of your Rainbows from the water as quickly as possible and keep them out only for a few seconds, you should only hold the fish over water, and you should cradle the trout gently without squeezing it. Of course, the proper catch-and-release techniques would be a whole article in of itself, but these are definitely the basic considerations. 

Do your best to engage in a no-kill policy. 

Of course, this leads us to our third point: when fishing for Rainbows, you should always keep a no-kill policy at the forefront of all of your sporting endeavors. This is not only because it is humane to the fish, but also because it will keep the population of Rainbow Trout solid for everyone else who wants to fish them. Moreover, it will encourage more spawning to occur, and yet again provide for a solid population of Rainbow Trout both on a spawn and pre-spawn basis. This is a great way for you to be courteous for all of the other anglers out there. 

Be careful in the spawning beds. Watch Your Step.

The next thing you will need to do when fishing for Rainbows is to be careful that you don’t step in their spawning beds. Rainbow Trout can lay hundreds, sometimes thousands, of eggs, and the simple act of you not watching where you are going and stepping in the wrong spot in the river bed can lead to a whole generation of Rainbow Trout being killed off. 

The first thing you want to do is is to educate yourself on the best way to identify a spawning bed. It can be difficult at first, but once you know what to look for it should be easy.

A Rainbow Trout spawning bed, also called a Redd, is an oval-shaped patch of gravel that will usually be three feet wide and they will be located in water of at least one to three feet. They are often characterized by the gravel, which is usually a lighter color than the surrounding riverbed. If you notice mounds and depressions in the redd sites, that means that the Redd has nests. Needless to say, if you are wearing waders, be very careful not to step in these areas. 

Finally, once you have identified a redd, make sure that you avoid walking upstream of it because it will muddy up the water and if there is one thing these eggs in that spawning bed need, it’s clean water. 

Keep your catch a bit limited. 

In some cases, you should limit your catch of Rainbow Trout, especially if you are in an area where the catch for the spawning trout is going pretty fast and furious. While there are many reasons you should do this, one of the main ones would have to be because there is a greater likelihood of accidental mortality. Of course, this will occasionally happen no matter how careful we are, but as outdoorsmen we all owe it to nature to be as careful as possible. 

Go with relatively small hook sizes. 

It really is a good idea to go with small hook sizes. This is true not just with all fishing endeavors, but it is especially true for spawning fish as well. Part of the reason for this is because the larger hook sizes are more likely to damage the vital organs of the fish. When you consider that the spawning Rainbows are already in a bit of a delicate situation, you can definitely see why you should be picky when selecting your hook size. 

Be aware of the exact time when the Rainbow Trout are spawning. 

This might seem simple, but although Rainbow Trout will normally spawn between March and May as a general rule of thumb, another important concept to note is that it depends on the different strain of Rainbow Trout as well. Depending on the subspecies, there are even certain Rainbow Trout strains that will spawn all year long. Thus, you should be prepared to ask questions. If you are fully knowledgeable of the location you are fishing at, then chances are you already know just when the Rainbow Trout are spawning. However, if you are visiting an area, be prepared to ask some of the local anglers what they know about the Rainbow Trout spawning times. For example, many of the local fisherman will be able to tell you the strains that will even spawn in the fall months instead of the spring!

Adjust your bait accordingly.  Eggs

You definitely shouldn’t neglect your bait during spawning season either! During the spawning season, this Rainbow Trout are going to prefer different types of bait than what they would normally prefer. Hands down one of the most productive techniques you can utilize during Rainbow Trout spawn fishing season would have to be fishing with trout or salmon eggs. Part of the reason for this is because trout and salmon eggs do an excellent job of mimicking the natural grouping of fish eggs. This will definitely entice the trout during the spawning season simply because that is what they are focused on anyway. 

These fish eggs, which are normally called egg sacks, are one of those things that will literally entice the trout so much that they will almost ignore all other baits completely during the spawning season. Rainbow Trout will be so attracted to these fish eggs primarily because they are usually composed of either salmon or cured trout.

When you bundle this concoction together in netting and in groups of 10 or 15, you have a combination that is almost irresistible to the spawning Rainbow Trout. Additionally, you also could consider doing some fly fishing during the spawning period as well. The spawning Rainbow Trout always seem to respond well to the artificial lure that is used during fly fishing simply because it resembles a fly insect or a similar type of prey, hence the name fly fishing. Spawning trout are especially on the lookout for nourishment during the spawning season, so there is no question they will go for what they think is a tasty insect meal. 

Keep some solid Rainbow Trout fishing techniques in your arsenal. 

Since most of the time these Rainbow Trout will spawn in the Spring months, there are some tricks that you should have up your sleeve in order to have a better chance at catching them. Indeed, there are many techniques to use, and almost all of them pertain to the normal time when the Rainbow Trout are cruising along the shore looking for a mate. As long as you keep some specific pointers in mind, the Rainbow Trout spawning time is a great time of year for you to catch just about as many trout as you want, and right from the shore, too! Think about the following: 

Jigs and lures are fine, but be prepared to divvy up your approach from time to time. 

Remember when we said that trout prefer salmon or trout eggs? While that is definitely true, these items can definitely be a difficult thing to acquire at times. Thus, as long as you use them right, you also can go with jigs and lures. Of course, you have to realize that the Rainbow Trout can be very finicky, and what might work one day would be a total wash the next day. Take the example of one gentleman who was fishing for trout on Quartz Lake in Alaska one day. He noticed that the trout were very lazy that day, and he also noticed that his jig was kind of heavy and dragging on the bottom of the lake. Since the fish were not going down to the bottom, he decided to retrieve his jig and start over. What to do? He thought. 

Well, he solved his problem by simply adding a small bobber to the line so that he could control the depth of his jig. This led to an immense amount of spawning Rainbow Trout being attracted to his line. Indeed, it seemed like he literally couldn’t keep them off his line! Of course, this leads us to our next point as well. 

You need the right amount of tools. 

Of course, there are a lot of fishing hobbyists that simply enjoy getting out on the lake and just catching whatever type of fish that comes along. If you’re like that, then all the more power to you. However, if you ever decide that you want to specialize on the type of fish you want to catch, you are going to have to get the right tools.

For spawning Rainbow Trout, at the very least you will need to have a solid pair of waders, a fishing vest, a solid and durable rod and reel, a nice landing net, a camera (for taking pictures of your catch), and a nice trout tackle box. Along with these items, you will vary up your bait. You should really stock up on the eggs if you are going to have success with spawning trout, and you should also have plenty of jigs, bobbers, and lures as a backup as well.

Be careful about your line selection. 

Finally, it doesn’t matter whether the trout are spawning or not, you need to make sure that you shop around when it comes to the fishing line that you use. A good rule of thumb is to fish with the lightest line that you can possibly get away with. This is because Rainbow Trout (and all other trout) have good eyesight, and they could get scared off by a line that is too visible. That is why you often want to go with a two-pound test line in most of your trout fishing situations. 

If you keep these tips and ideas in mind, you should have no problem being able to catch as many spawning Rainbow Trout as you want. Tight Lines My Friends.

Fishing Willow Beach – Catch Fish Near Las Vegas

Can You Fish at Willow Beach?

Willow Beach is a long-time classic fishing destination. It’s a part of Lake Mohave on the Colorado River. The black rock canyons are just below Hoover dam and are part of Lake Mead National Park. Its Cold waters are on the north of Lake Mohave.

I’m going to share stuff here that you won’t find anywhere else.

Back in the day, they used to catch huge
rainbow trout out of that little beach. I remember when I was a kid they had a café in by where the
store is. Other Species we caught were Carp, Catfish, and Bass.

Inside the café, we used to go there to eat breakfast in the mornings before we went
fishing or we would go fishing early and come to the café after a couple of hours of fishing.
Inside the café.

The walls were lined with hundreds of pictures of anglers with their catch. These
were all rainbow trout at the time and you had to have a trout over 5 pounds to get on the wall.

There were also taxidermy trout on the walls along with other wildlife that you can find in the
area. If I remember right there was a bighorn ram mount at the front entrance.

Later on, as I grew up in the 80s and 90s the decor changed a little bit. The trout pictures were still on the wall
but the trophy at the front of the store was in a case and it changed to a striped bass.

Around this time striped bass got out of Lake Mead into the river system. They had a heyday eating up
trout.

Because of that, they grew to enormous sizes. I can’t remember exactly but I seem to
recall a striped bass in the display case that was over 60 pounds if I remember right.

This place is the iconic big fish travel destination. There have been people coming here for decades to
catch big fish whether they be trout or striped bass.

I took a 100 person survey on facebook if people like bass fishing best or trout fishing best. Here’s the results.

Can You Swim at willow beach?

There is no swimming allowed at the marina but if you go outside the buoys you can swim. You should be warned that the water is ice cold year around though.


Do I need an Arizona fishing license to fish at Willow Beach?

There is a lot of confusion unless you already know about whether you need a license to fish at
Willow Beach or not.

First of all yes you do need a license to fish at Willow Beach. However, if
you have a Nevada license that will work as well.

It doesn’t matter if you are on a boat or on
the shore as long as you have a Nevada or an Arizona license you are good to go.

Do I need a stamp for Arizona or Nevada at Willow Beach?

The answer is
no. Some time ago they did away with the stamps. Now when you buy the license it is included
with the license if you get it in Nevada or Arizona does not matter.

Do I need a trout stamp at Willow Beach?

Again the answer is no. Back in the day you
used to have to buy a trout stamp but nowadays that is included with the license as well no
matter which state you come from Arizona or Nevada.

Do I need a stamp for a second pole at Willow Beach?

Once again the answer to that is no. It is
included with the license and you can have up to two poles but a maximum number of three hooks
between the two poles.

So I usually fish one pole with one hook in the other pole with two
hooks.
At the end of this article, I will give you a willow beach fishing Report for 2021


Can I catch striped bass at Willow Beach?

The answer is absolutely yes you can.

What are the
recommendations for catching striped bass?

Well you can do it similar to the way you do it in
Lake Mead- bait fishing with anchovies that are frozen.

Cut them in thirds and put them
on a standard worm hook. Use about 1 ounce of weight and toss them out there about as far as
you can get them.

If you are on a boat you can do the same thing or you can go upstream a ways and float down slowly with an anchovy on the hook slightly above the bottom.

Another
recommended way to catch striped bass is using baits that mimic baitfish. Either a lure that
mimics a shad or one that mimics a trout or even bluegill.

These are terrific to use because
the bass and the striped bass love to eat these smaller fish, especially trout.

In case you did not know trout are stocked at Willow Beach every Friday. When this happens it’s like buffet time for
the striped bass. This would be a good time to throw out a swim bait that looks like a trout.

last but not least you can use live bait which you can get from my buddy mike wigglerarmy.com

Can I catch trout at Willow Beach?

Again the answer to this is an astounding yes.

How do you catch trout at Willow Beach? I would suggest the old standby Berkeley power bait and fish
somewhere around the picnic area by the store or the fishing pier over by the hatchery.

Probably the best place to catch trout. Anywhere in between that is able to be official legally is
good as well. If you have a boat or kayak you can go up or downstream and fish The coves. The
trout like to hang out in there as well and you can catch some real big trout at Willow Beach.

Both of my sons have caught 5-pound trout there. In case you were wondering yes this was
recently it was 2020.

My son Lorin at Willow Beach – This Rainbow Trout was caught on a Berkley Mousetail

I know the best do you eat the trout but the hatchery also put out some
very large ones for the anglers to catch. You can also use lures like spinners for trout and even
jerk baits that are semi-small.

Another popular soft bait or mouse tails made by Berkley. Also,
regular old nightcrawlers are a great option. You can get them from my friend mike
wigglerarmy.com

Marshmallows are a good bait for trout as well. Some people use the garlic-flavored ones made
specifically for fishing but the little colorful marshmallows that you put in your hot cocoa do a
nice job too. (the garlic flavored ones give me bad breath)

Lastly, a super very good option is wax worms or mealworms that you can get at
the store at Willow Beach. Keep in mind Arizona time is different than Nevada time most of the
year and the store closes fairly early.

What are some Willow Beach fishing tips?

The first tip I would give you is to try to fish in the off
hours to beat the crowds.

A lot of people go down to Willow Beach If you try to go during a holiday weekend you are
going to fight for elbow room. I would say if you go in the morning during the week that would be
a terrific time.

It doesn’t matter if you are going just to kayak or if you are fishing, the middle of
the week is a good time.

Late in the evening is also a good time. Only the most diehard
fisherman are out there after about 10 PM so getting a spot is not so hard except maybe on the
weekends. They do have a very nice fishing pier at Willow Beach and it’s quite large but in the
late summer, there’s a lot of grass around the pier so it’s kind of difficult to fish.

If you are going to fish the pier in the late summer you are going to want some sort of gear that you can cast out
very far. This will get you out past the grass and give you a better chance of getting a striper.

Mouse tails and wax worms seem to do the best on trout if you can see them. Plop one of these
baits in front of them and you can usually get their attention with it especially the wax worms
and regular worms.

The best piece of advice I can give you if you want to catch trout is to go
there on Friday morning. Prepare for heavy traffic along the shore because a lot of people know
that the department of wildlife stocks Willow Beach at the ramp on Friday mornings at about eight.

Watch out for the no fishing signs. You need to stay in the designated fishing areas which are a
little ways away from the docs. If you are fishing for striped bass this is a good time too.
Because the stripers come in to eat the trout. Putting something out there that looks like a trout
is a good bet during this time.

Willow Beach trout stocking schedule 2021

All I can tell you is that they stock Willow Beach at about 8:00 AM every Friday morning. There
are occasions when that schedule is changed for example during Covid lockdowns they did not
stock for quite a long time.

There may be other reasons why they don’t stock for example if it is
a holiday. Other than that they are pretty regular about it.

Fishing at Lorenzi Park Las Vegas Aka. Twin Lakes

Published

on

When I was a kid there was one thing that you could count on that was always on my mind and that was fishing. 

Of course when you’re a kid you only have what you have and that is not much when it comes to fishing gear.

Get live Striper and bass bait HERE

Of course, I had a fishing pole but I must have gotten for Christmas or my birthday and I had a tackle box with a few things in it.

Your run-of-the-mill bass curly tail jigs, a couple of flies for trout, a handful of bobbers. 

Get A Free FishinMoney Sticker HERE

And a few other odds and ends like some 6 pound fishing string. And assortment of hooks mostly for trout.

When my friends and I got lucky enough to get dropped off at Lorenzi Park to do some fishing we had a blast together.

I don’t recall who all was there but I remember that my friend Shane and I quickly learned that the fish in the pond at that time were so small that you needed a Hook that could fit in their mouth and we do not have any that small.

As I recall I took a small treble hook and type two hooks off of it to make one single hook that was small enough to try to catch some bluegill.

It took us most of the day to figure all of this out and get our gear ready to actually catch a fish but in the end, we did not give up and we were able to catch bluegill that day.

I don’t go back there anymore, at least I have not been there for many years because in my opinion there are other places that are better for fishing.

The neighborhood is a little tough and although in the daytime it’s fine I would not want to be out there too much at night.

I prefer places like cold Creek, veterans memorial pond in Boulder city, and even Sunset Park.

But I know there are a lot of people who for one reason or another are going to Lorenzi Park and they want to know where to fish when they get there.

Where should I fish at Lorenzi Park?

I can tell you exactly where I always had the best of work and I can also tell you where would be a good place now to finish when you get there.

 Around the center of the pond between the two lakes, there is a bridge. Near the bridge, you will see a blue roof picnic area. Next to that, you’ll find some steps that lead down to the water and an overlook with a rail around it that’s where you want to go. Just remember it’s near the center bridge that crosses the two lakes find the steps near the bigger lake and it’s right there. I’m going to include a picture of the place that I’m talking about and you will quickly see you once you see the picture of why I recommend this place.

This is the place where I was able to catch bluegill when I was a kid. 

What bait should I use at Lorenzi Park?

We used Webber’s white bread. 

Yeah, no joke we just rolled it up into a tight ball and put it on our hook. Every time we cast and we were able to get lots of bites.

The problem with using this type of meat is that as soon as he gets wet it starts to get loose and it’s not too long before it comes off your hook.

It’s really easy for the fish to steal your bait. But it’s cheap and his kids that was what made the most sense to us I guess.

Nowadays if I were to go there I would probably bring some Berkeley power bait. You can make small little balls of bait for fishing and it would be much harder to get it to come off of your hook.

How do I fish for trout at Lorenzi Park?

However, if you are going to fish at Lorenzi Park during the fall and spring before it gets too hot. I would still recommend the same exact spot for fishing however you might be fishing for a different species.

That pond is now stocked with rainbow trout. Back when I was a kid it was not but now it is and also during the hot summer months it is stocked with catfish.

If you are fishing there any time between November and March you can rest assured that there are rainbow trout in there and in that case I would go with a very small treble hook maybe a size 14 and Berkeley power bait for trout fishing.

How do I fish for catfish at Lorenzi Park in Las Vegas?

If you go there during the summer months or hotter months, I would recommend using a small warm hook and you could try using nightcrawlers or anchovies.

You will need to know where you can get nightcrawlers and anchovies so I am going to tell you here.

The best place to go for that is the Walmart sports section. They have a refrigerator and a freezer where they keep both nightcrawlers and anchovies.

However, I am going to give you my best tip of this article. If you are fishing for catfish in the warm months, go to the grocery store and buy some small shrimp. Put that on your hook and you will knock out those catfish.

There you go don’t say I never gave you nothing… LOL

The Best Trout Fishing YouTube Channels

Published

on

alt_text

In the year 2020 there is no question that we are definitely in the information age. You can learn about practically anything that you want, and there are countless platforms to do so. One of the most well-known ones would have to be YouTube.

There is an immense amount of videos available to help people learn about a given craft or skill. Take fishing, for example. There are fishing channels devoted to every type of fishing imaginable, from fishing for crappie to fishing for catfish and everything in between.

Malechi Brooks

Indeed, there are so many that it can be difficult to figure out which ones are good and which ones are not so good. However, when it comes to fishing for trout, there are quite a few examples out there.

Are you looking for some really good YouTube trout fishing channels? Of course, before we get started, you probably should realize that most of the suggested channels are not devoted to just trout fishing, but many of the techniques are easily adapted to fishing for this particular breed. Here are some that you should strongly consider:

By The Way have you ever used a worm pump? It’s my secret sauce and you can pick one up cheap at Amazon Here.

Salt Strong

Versatility is the name of the game for the Salt Strong YouTube Channel. They have videos devoted to almost every species of fish, including bass, catfish, and even such obscure options as snook and grouper. However, one of the reasons why they were included in the trout fishing category would have to be because they have plenty of good (and recent) trout-related fishing videos available.

They have posted at least 15 different trout or trout-related videos. Moreover, one of the things that makes this group unique would be that they aren’t just a collection of videos, but they also market themselves as an online community where other fishermen can bounce other ideas off each other and where they can even take different courses about how to fish for different breeds!

Yet another notable video they offer would be entitled, “3 Tips For Fishing Points” where it discusses some of the things you can do to catch more snook, redfish, and trout. A couple of these would include going with the flow and to avoid doubting the drop-offs. Of course, it is important to mention that when we say “points”, we are talking about a designation in place and not simply an element of conversation.

Moreover, one of the best things about this video would have to be that they are excellent at providing strategies for helping you to improve your fishing game. Ask any angler, and they will tell you that they enjoy the experience much better if they are catching fish. There’s just something about getting results from your hobby that makes it that much more enjoyable, and that’s probably why this channel regularly gets views in the tens of thousands for many of their recent videos and views in the millions for their oldest videos.

Addicted Fishing

Again, versatility is the name of the game for this fishing channel. One of the best things about Addicted Fishing would be that they provide a number of in-depth “How To” tutorials regarding how to catch all of your favorite fish. For example, they posted a video where they discussed fishing with “plastic pink worms” as a way to catch more trout.

That video was posted about seven months ago, and it already has over 258,000 views. And don’t think for a minute that that video is the only one that has had that many views. Addicted to Fishing also has a video detailing the “TOP 3 Methods For SUCCESS!” when fishing for trout that has had about 236,000 views as well.

Moreover, Addicted Fishing has a lot of unique listings for you to ponder. They have videos with titles such as “How to Catch Trout With Jet Puff Marshmallows” (197,000 views), “Using Trout Magnets For a Stocked Lake”(148,000 views), and “The Best Methods For Catching Trout in Rivers, Streams, and Creeks.” When it comes to YouTube channels that offer good trout-fishing videos, my point is this: Addicted Fishing is definitely a keeper.

Hey FISHMONGER – make sure to check out my FISHING RESOURCES page.

Fishin Money

Fishin Money might be a bit of a new kid on the block, but some of the insights they provide are every bit as useful to the trout fisherman as some of these larger channels. Moreover, you definitely should consider the fact that even though they have only been posting videos since last January, they are already up to 102 subscribers.

Perhaps one of the most compelling videos they have in their offerings would have to be the one posted in early July regarding fishing weights. Perhaps it’s due to COVID-19, but many fishermen are starting to notice that fishing weights are getting to be in short supply in such places as Bass Pro Shops and other fishing retailers. However, ask any experienced retailer, and they will tell you that weights is almost a necessity if you are going to start targeting a specific breed of fish.

Trout and other breeds will almost always stay at a certain depth, and the weights will help your bait sink to the required level. However, before I digress too much, this angler did notice the dilemma of these major fishing retailers no longer carrying weights. Indeed, some were completely out of them! So what did he do? He made his own! That’s right, and part of the reason why this YouTube channel has so much potential would have to be because it offers several practical life hacks for helping all anglers catch more of their favorite species, trout or otherwise.

Another good thing that this channel is that it often will combine elements of sports, psychology (RE: the overcoming negative fishing thoughts video), and even an analysis of different fishing locations. This is truly a fishing channel that has a lot of potential and should have a bright future, so you definitely should tune in regularly in order to get some solid angling tips.

All three of these videos illustrate the fact that fishing is so much more than just a sport. Fishing can definitely be a way of life, and it absolutely can bring families together. Lifelong friendships are made out on the water, along with many new ways of strategizing for the fish. There is no question that fishing is a great way to deal with life, and an excellent way to learn new things about yourself.
