Winter Fishing Tips

WINTER FISHING TIPS are on everybody’s mind now – and despite the cold days and nights, this is a great time to be on the banks. Remember this though: you have to adapt your tactics in order to find action.

There’s no doubt you have to work a lot harder to get bites in winter, but I feel that catching fish at this time of year is far more rewarding than during the warmer months.

Here are some winter fishing tips to help you…

Keen species

When conditions are cold, it pays to target species that feed better in lower water temperatures.

As winter fishing tips go, this one sounds obvious but you’d be surprised how many people just target the wrong species on the day. Being a bit of an all-rounder is a good thing!

If your usual quarry aren’t playing ball, then it is worth broadening your horizons and skills to tempt more obliging winter feeding species like grayling, chub (pictured below), pike, roach, dace, or perch.
