Fly Fishing Techniques – Late Winter/Pre-Runoff Nymphing & Streamer Fishing

Some excellent tips for pre-runoff walk-and-wade fly fishing, including:

  • walk/wade fishing back eddies with nymphs/streamers
  • fishing “soft” water along the bank
  • casting tips for dealing with steep/brushy banks

When water levels go up in the spring, walk-and-wade fishing can be highly productive. Most of the time the fish are tight to the bank and you don’t even have to get in the water.
