Q:So, I finally have a nice fishing hole on a river, that is stocked regularly. The place I go is teaming with fish from 1 inch to 12, mostly trout but a few bass too. My problem is I can't get them on the hook! They strike everything I throw at them, and nibble all my bait off. and I feel them bite, but they spit my hook out. I primarily use corn as bait. They devour everything but none stay on my line! Its so frustrating what am I doing wrong?!?!?!
Q:My wife and myself are going to be spending 3 weeks in June just outside of Douglas,WY. She is training under a horse clinician there and I am along for the ride. My thoughts were to bring my fly rod along and target the different species of trout via public access. Any advice would be great. Anyone ever fished the area? In June? Go to flies? Typical weather for June? How will an Altitude change of 4800 feet affect myself or the fishing? Snake precautions, or chances of seeing them (or preferably not seeing them). Etc?? I have never ventured toward that part of the country, and being from Maine a 12-16" native brookie is a trophy. What to expect?
