Reading the Water on a Trout Stream - Video Spotlight

Do you ever approach a new stream (or your ever-frustrating home waters) and wonder just where the trout are? Trout position themselves in slower water adjacent to faster moving water to feed on the food zooming by while expending the least amount of energy possible. But then there are tailouts. Pillows. Riffles. Foam lines. What does it all mean? Improve your hydro-literacy with this recent video presented by Orvis' Tom Rosenbauer.

I found this video especially helpful at about 10:35 when guide Molly Seminuk explains where to fish on large rivers like the Bow. Tom's guidance on fishing pocket water and during high water will certainly be helpful for me in the upcoming season! ~Courtney
