The Troutbitten Podcast is back for season five. My full crew of friends returns, joining me for some great conversations about fly fishing for river trout. We’ll tackle a little bit of everything this season — with streamers, nymphs, wets and dry flies. And while there will be plenty of tactics talk, I’m sure we’ll get into some good stories and experiences on the river too.

Episode one kicks this season off with a discussion about fly fishing through the fall season, from the late summer turn of the equinox, heading into the beginning of fall, to the end of the spawning season, which around here signals the beginning of winter.

Fall fishing offers renewed hope and opening opportunities, along with a change of scenery. As the foliage turns, so do the habits of wild trout. Our favorite fish loses some of its characteristic inhibitions.

More water, less light and the instinct to fatten up create unique opportunities for every angler who is willing to meet the trout on their own terms. While hatches may be sparse, the underwater game opens up to those with the skills to present a nymph, streamer or wet fly with precision.

Trout chase. They migrate. They feed and they procreate. Fall fishing offers a style of fishing that is unequaled in any other season.

We Cover the Following
  • What we look forward to most in the fall
  • Do trout feed more throughout the fall season?
  • How fewer hatches affect fish behavior and fishing opportunities
  • More or less water. What is our preference?
  • The leaf hatch
  • How does spawning affect the fishing?
  • When does fall fishing turn into winter?
  • Favorite fall tactics

Podcast: Streamer Presentations — All About the Head of the Fly — S5, Ep8

In this episode, we discuss the head orientation of the streamer in the water — how the streamer moves with the currents or against them, and what looks more natural vs what might look more attractive.

We also dig into what added weight does to the head of a streamer, how that affects the action and how that limits or enhances the presentation styles that we have available . . .

Podcast: Freewheelin’ Two — Stories and Experiences — S5, Ep7

It’s the things that happen while we’re out there that make fly fishing for trout the all-consuming, never ending pursuit that it is for us. And, in truth, all of us need to LET that happen. It’s in the choices that we make regarding where we’ll fish, when we’ll fish and who we’ll fish with. Those elements, the locations, the woods, the water and the friendships make all of this special . . .

Podcast: Strategies for Fishing Low and Clear Water — S5, Ep6

Podcast: Strategies for Fishing Low and Clear Water — S5, Ep6

Many anglers shrink from the challenge of low water. They walk away or never string up the fly rod, using the excuse that trout are simply too spooky or they just aren’t eating. But I promise you, that is not true. Trout are eating in these conditions. It just takes a calculated approach to bring them to hand.

Don’t spook the fish. Achieving that is different from season to season. It’s different in various water types. And acceptable distances from the trout change even with the angles by which you approach them . . .

  1. I live in West Yellowstone, and have had one of the best fishing seasons ever in the Park. Lots of bugs and not many people, but in the north end of the Park, it’s like exploring all new rivers. For example the Lamar is completely different. There is hardly a rock that hasn’t been moved downstream. It can make access to the river quite difficult, and I’ve seen side walls collapse while I’m fishing, but the fish have been hungry. The Yellowstone itself has been fantastic — large cutthroats all summer long and all day long. Can’t complain, and am currently enjoying Fall fishing before the Park closes. Life is good.
