Winter has arrived with full force and there is plenty of snow on the ground and plenty more on it’s way. But don’t let it get in the way of chasing some trout! Winter is a fantastic time to venture out on to the lakes in the area, which are still open to fish during the winter season. In between snow storms and blizzards there can be some magical days to polaroid the foreshore. In the winter months the fish really like moving in closer to shore and make sight casting to these fish a very exciting experience. A well presented nymph placed ahead of a cruising fish can see some great hook-ups. Wooly buggers and other streamer patterns such as Hamills Killers, Mrs Simpsons, and Matuka style of flies fished deep around the margins can often entice a bite from fish looking for yabbies and shrimp.
Days Like these can see some wonderful opportunities for sight casting to cruising fish.
Evening fishing during these months is also a very productive activity, although temperatures after dark can get well below freezing, it will pay to get some good quality outerwear to keep you warm and toasty whilst fishing at night (or even during the day for that matter!) Thankfully High Country Outfitters has everything that you need to keep you going through these colder months. Brands like Patagonia, Columbia, and Simms have some great gear that will make the experience more comfortable.
In fact all this month if you mention this post you can get yourself 10% off any Patagonia jacket or pant!!
High Country Outfitters is open 7 days a week from early til late all year around.
