"Ridin' Dirty:" Rosenbauer on Fishing High, Off-Color Water

In this new podcast, Tom describes several ways to turn a potential washout into gangbuster trout fishing.
“In dirty water, fish can sometimes feed quite heavily. And if you can, you want to catch a river on the rise. Whether it’s from hydro-generation dam releases, or a sudden thunderstorm, or a period of heavy rain, when the water first goes up that dislodges nymphs and crayfish and washes earthworms into the stream. The baitfish get disoriented because they get pushed around by the faster current. Gamefish know this, and they really go on the prowl.”
