Fly fishing on a stream or river shares some very common techniques for presenting your dry fly, nymph or streamers to awaiting trout. You experience the standard riffles Photo TrophyRainbow Trout producing an abundance of insects like a moving buffet table, runs that carry the insects away from the river bed mud, rocks, & weeds where they grow and mature until they are washed downstream. These usually shallow yet highly productive areas of the rivers and streams have the water moving over them like a large conveyor belt that collects any insect that is not secured to the bottom rocks and weeds and quickly dispatches the unsuspecting full course meal into the water seams to be delivered the hungry trout waiting downstream.
Seams Provide A Calm Feeding Environment For The Trout Below
Seams are an area located between fast moving and slower moving currents of water. The seam is visibly distinguishable to the human eye and can be easily located where the faster current passes the slower current . The seams surface can appear at times as if it is barely moving, especially compared to the main current located on its side. This is a place big trout can and do easily lie in wait completely protected by structure on the bottom and rise up as the main course arrives. These big boys control the “holes” they lie in and will drive off

smaller fish to protect their territory. After all there world is one where the fittest survive. So the big trout can easily gobble up the assorted buffet as the insects helplessly pass by.

And The Food Goes Round & Round Like On A Lazy Susan
Along this same river course we have eddies that create deep pools with a back current that traps insects in an endless swirl until a wise trout willingly slurps them up. This is another protected area for the trophy trout to live in. The lazy Susan is the perfect bug trap and the water current resistance that overwhelms the insects in an inescapable spin provides minimal resistance to the large and powerful fish swimming below. Making the trapped insects an easy meal that requires the trout to use minimal energy to catch and devour. But change the setting to a small lake or even a large one like Strawberry and a whole new approach to the sport of fly fishing is required if you want to be successful and catch some very large fish on a fly.
What Is So Special About Still Water Trout?
One word can sum it all up, S-I-Z-E- this is the key. “There’s Huge trophy trout in them there lakes and ponds”. These still water fish have an abundance of food in the virtually still water, the weed beds serve as a brood nursery for insects and produce lots of oxygen while cleaning the water of c02, ammonia and other waste created by the trout. Weed beds also provide protection and shade from the overhead sun and birds of prey. This life of leisure is the perfect setting for creating fat and happy trophies. This is the exact reason why fly fishing in still waters is such a phenomenal experience. Size really does matter when you catch wild trophy trout. The bigger the better!  This is West Desert Utah's best fly fishing for big tiger trout and monster raninbow trout on the fly.
