Winter Trout Flies

Fly fishing in the winter can be challenging but, also, highly rewarding. Most people do not venture outside their homes so winter fly fishing keeps the crowds away, and often times you’ll have the water all to yourself.

Generally speaking, trout are a smidge sluggish in the winter as they become less active in, literally, wader freezing temperatures. We don’t recommend that you fly fish in the winter because it only adds further stress to fish that have not recovered from the summer.
