These river fishing tips will help you find success…. so get out there on running water during these first few weeks of the season!
1. Keep on the move
It can be difficult to locate fish on lightly fished and overgrown stretches. A mobile approach roving approach is often best so travel light.
2. Target shallows
Fish the shallows to start with if possible for your early-season river fishing session.
These swims will often hold fish as the water is more oxygenated.
3. Fish early or late
Long daylight hours this time of year make quick summer fishing sessions viable after work or studying.
It’s much more fun than sitting on the sofa watching TV, surfing the web, pootling on social media or playing games – again.
Target these later periods as a priority – fish will be feeding more confidently than in the middle of the day.
4. Focus on big baits
Small nuisance fish can be a problem with maggots and casters this time of year.
I like to focus on bigger traditional baits like bread flake, lobworms and luncheon meat for early season chub and barbel sessions.
If possible pre-baiting will give you a great advantage and result in bigger bags of fish.
Use cheap baits like brown crumb groundbait, hemp and corn.
