Streams, what to know when fishing there.



Much like ponds and other small bodies of water, it takes a certain kind of patience and subtleness for a fisherman to successfully fish at streams.  You have to be extra subtle at relatively small streams that lack any cover from weeds and trees so as to not alarm and discourage fish by your presence.  Given the need to be relatively unnoticeable to the fish, you should, accordingly, pack and carry light when fishing so as to eliminate any unnecessary noises and obstructions that come with wearing bulky clothes and otherwise bulky fishing gear.

Though you have to be weary of your movements so as not to startle the fish in the small body of water, arguably, it is easier to catch fish at a small body of water, like a stream.  This is because you can take advantage of the fact that in small bodies of water, like streams, fish tend to be much more stable in where they eat and otherwise harbor within the body of water; in this light, there's a pattern that one can follow of where fish usually are, which can help tailor the fishing expedition of a fisherman at a particular stream.

Like any other living thing, fish primarily care for food and shelter.  They want it nearby.  In small bodies of water, like streams and ponds, fish do not need to go far to get both.  As they do not like sunlight, fish tend to harbor themselves deep within streams--especially dark, grimy streams so as not to be easily seen at the bottom--underneath whatever brush that happens to grow in the area, or near the bottom of rough banks of the streams.  While

 harboring there, they allow food to come to them:  Fish rely on a stream's currents to channel-deliver food, such as insects (larva, ants, grasshoppers, etc.), to them as they maintain their positions.  Depending on the temperature of the water, the availability of oxygen and depth of a stream, a large variety of fish may be swimming in it, even large fish.  The last bit of a tip is this:  If you are able to see the bottom of the stream from where you are, the chances are very good that fish are not in that immediate area; look for much more murky, grimy water, near overhanging shrubs, with water that is deeper overall, etc.  You need to fish at a part of a stream that meets the above pattern of where such fish are bound to be.
