Tom Rosenbauer On Fly Fishing High and Low Flows

Rosenbauer’s podcast focuses on how water flow effects trout fishing, especially early in the season.
Excerpt: “To understand flow, you first need to understand how trout use it. And trout love to be in areas that are adjacent to relatively fast current — because that brings them the food — but protected from the current. Studies have measured the flow in places that trout seem to prefer — in the bottom of the river or the middle of the river — and trout seem to like flows that are about one foot per second, about the speed of a slow walk. This is difficult for us to predict, because flow is going in three dimensions and it’s invisible.”
