We are blessed to have good wade fishing waters close to home and within a short drive of our area .
Wade fishing allows the angler to get out of the summer heat and direct sunlight and makes fishing much more enjoyable, and sometimes even more productive. No other form of fishing puts you more one on one with the fish and the outdoors than standing chest deep in the water and casting for or fighting a good fish.
All of your senses are more active and your awareness is keen when you wade fish. Plus, you will see the true beauty of nature in its truest form. All of this put together makes for some of the most relaxing most peaceful fishing you will ever do. It can also be the most fun fishing you will ever do.
Most fish in moving water such as a creek or stream are active and are used to fighting the current and will not hesitate to strike bait or lure. Just about any type of lure will catch fish in streams, but stick to the smaller versions for best results. Medium to light action tackle will handle most wade fishing.
If you have not tried this type of fishing in a while give it a try soon. It is the perfect time of the year to fish this way.
