One of my favorite ways to fish for trout is by throwing streamers. I'm a total sucker for it. Whether that's out of a boat or walking down a bank, there's nothing quite like that big tug you get when fishing those bigger baitfish and leech patterns for trout. Heck, even if you aren't landing fish you at least get the satisfaction of the swipes, tugs and long follows. That's why utilizing a streamer might just be your best bet for some action early in the season. Typically the water is higher and colder, and less insects are hatching — making a streamer pattern an easy choice for its simplicity. Just don't fish it like you would in the middle of the summer or early fall. Here are eight tips that are sure to help improve your fishing with the big bugs this spring.
