As a fisherman and professional fly fishing guide, the single most gratifying moment in my many years on the water is the moment a young person catches their first fish on the fly when I am fishing with them. Unfortunately, today with competition from video games, Internet and general urbanization of our culture, it’s becoming a rarity to capture a child’s attention at all. They seem to be more interested in adding friends to their Facebook accounts. To make a child’s experience on the creek successful, you have to keep a few things in mind. A child’s attention span for any activity is tough to capture and even more tough to hold; especially when fly fishing. Make certain that the proposed area your fishing with a child has fish to catch. For inland waters, stocked ponds and streams can be productive for a good part of the year. For lake run fish in the tributaries, the timing is a bit more critical. Rule number one: make certain there are fish to catch!
Male and female brown trout can be found within the lower stretches, near the mouth, of most frozen creeks during really cold spells in January and February. Fish can be present as singles or doubles and can be mixed with a few resident steelhead. Target the deep pools, ice ledges and present your fly low and slow. The take is almost always subtle and the fight is usually a sluggish battle. You will need patience, appropriate clothing and a touch of tenacity. Target the warmest part of the day to increase your chances of hooking up. The fish will be there … and so should you! ~~ Scott Feltrinelli
