Firstly, I want to note that this article is not intended to somehow teach or persuade experienced anglers who fish for a long time and have the skills and principles in fishing. It is simply a description of how I catch myself and my methods of fishing that I obtained while fishing on the river. In addition, at this point I notice that I am not a specialist, but a fisherman who, first of all, glad of any opportunity to get out fishing, and it does not matter, will be caught roach one or several big bream or carp. In fact, I prefer to hunt larger bream, because I believe that this fish deserves respect for its careful and cunning. I believe that many anglers’ fish is underestimated and not try to catch it purposefully.
Fishing on the peaceful fish
There are fishermen who deliberately avoid catching bream and, when caught, rather upset, as were set to catch carp. Currently, the carp since popularized, and I can safely say that for the bream lives in many areas literally paradise. In addition, these fish are very shy by nature (as opposed to farmed bream) and, therefore, are always in inaccessible locations and depths that give them peaceful existence. I believe that in every body of water will necessarily be individuals bream weighing over 2 kg.
Often these fish as old and experienced, are rarely caught. Fishing on the river is often successful in catching bream this weight category. Also, I think the big bream fishing on the river is great for anglers, it is configured to fishing. Try to forget about their habits and enrich carp fishing experience, the art of fishing on the river, fishing for large bream. Try to experience the wonderful feeling when you have the other end of the fishing gear beating in an attempt to get rid of 2 kg handsome bream.
Where to catch the river
In any case, fishing on the river section in terms of fishing, is very important for us. It is advisable to know where and when the migration passes bream, or if he is here all the time, where are like trails. Very good to know where to dump in the river, because it was piled on bream feeds. Even small rivers in some areas are promising for fishing, but our results fishing on the river may be unjustified, if not to know this river.
On quiet rivers bream is the most common, it is usually held pits or river bed. The warmer river water, the better. But when it is too overheated, bream becomes active and goes to a depth where the water is cooler. The optimal water temperature for fishing in the river is 20-24 degrees. Bream at this temperature is the most active.
Crucian carp, roach and other fish that have similar habits, such as bream, as well caught on the river during this period.
When fishing on the river, be careful, as the bream and carp are very sensitive and suspicious of any extraneous noise. Sometimes you can see, both on the surface of the divergent wave of sailing bream. That they swim in the upper layers of the river, collecting insects fallen on the water. But what becomes of hot water, about fishing on the river, you can forget all the fish out into the deep and become inactive. The best season for fishing in the river is spring and autumn, but sometimes even in the biggest midday heat can catch bream, if there is springs that prevent overheating water.
But mostly on the river fishing is best in the morning and evening. I think with the noon bream less mobile and hiding in their secret places. In pure water, fishing in the river is worse than less transparent, more turbid. In fish, and this is true of bream, very good vision. The muddy water fish sees less and therefore less cautious.
The higher the water level, the more the fish near the shore - Use this when fishing on the river. Ideal for fishing on the river 1m depth of 3 meters from the shore and drop to 2 to a depth of 3.5-4 m. The bait for fishing on the river.
The most proven bait for fishing on the river, it is specially designed for bream, with universal flavors (vanilla, strawberry ...). The bait should be sweet, oddly enough, but bream sweet tooth. The bait for fishing in the river should be sticky to no longer blurred over. The optimal time for the collapse coma bait on the bottom for 3-4 minutes. Lure should be small portions, but often (every 10-20 minutes).
Once the fish begins to collect the bait, it becomes not so vigilant. In spring and autumn, when the fish eats significantly less when fishing on the river need to lure smaller fish to not oversaturated.
The bait for fishing on the river
Earthworms "work" only occasionally, usually during the muddy water in the summer or spring. Bream caught in the river on earthworms, which are placed on the hook entirely, and slices. Examples pushed on the worm on the hook can see in the article all about fishing (fishing) on bream.
Maggot is very popular bait fishing on the river. For him as well caught bream and other fish throughout the year. If the catch on the river to the maggot, be sure to add it to the bait. Generally believed to catch some bait, this must necessarily be the bait.
If the fish in the river, you have a very rare bite and do not know what to do, try to roll balls of bait that was thrown into the water. Maybe this bait will not be too long to keep, but sometimes 20 seconds is enough, the fish came over and pecked at it. Your business is only time to detect it.
Fishing on the river fishing methods
Typically, fishing on the river fishing on the feeder means. But it's usually on rivers where needed long-range casting. More about this kind of fishing I wrote in the article "Catching bream. Feeder". When fishing on the float rod are different ways of rigging fishing on the river. The bite is usually shown little dive float (sometimes only a few millimeters) for a short time. In any case, the float should be very well adjusted, making it sensitive to the slightest bite.
When fishing on float tackle fishing on the river is usually a maximum of 4 meters from the shore, so it is necessary to use a rod not less than 4.2 m.
When fishing in the river using a small oval float okolo1,5 was quite often have to catch with his hands, as bites occur immediately after casting. This success is instantaneous slicing down fish. Fishing on the river so interesting that the fish is constantly spinning in place overfeeds. If the time to pop the bait, biting will always be constant. The illustration shows how to make the shipment of the float.
Torrential rains quickly muddy river, and many anglers think that fishing in the river at this time is not relevant. I can argue. During the rainy season the water in the river comes and goes to feed the fish to the shore. Since the streams of the fields are a lot of food for the fish. When the water is cloudy, the best fish in the river shore and float rod.
In such cases, when fishing in troubled waters, and at a short distance, using the classic float, non-slip, and which is attached to the line to capture the desired depth. Fishing is carried out almost at the bottom, as a fish in those days looking for food particles settling. The size of the float (classic) is selected in accordance with conditions - depth, weather conditions, and also depending on what you catch in this position. It is important to properly balance the float. The float should be balanced so that the water covers half of the antenna rather than half of the float. That's right, because when a fish touches the bait, it must sink or pull to the side.
Fishing on the river predatory fish
Fishing from a boat on the river
For fishing on the river angler requires spinning - the second, third class, with a long handle. If fishing is conducted in areas or areas with a rocky bottom, where it is very rapidly hooks, it is necessary to deal with a tool for sharpening; I usually take with a diamond needle file. In order not to tire he with frequent lifting load (anchor) can develop a special buoy.
Be sure to bring your boat to the landing net. Without it will be difficult to pull a big fish in the boat. And one need, when fishing from a boat on the river, bring a bag or some sort of big tight package. Caught fish develops in it, so it does not jump all over the boat. If you catch a pike, always clings to the metal leash. Pike with his sharp teeth point to saw the line or braid. The length of leashes should be 130-150 mm.
Fishing on the rivers has its specificity - is necessary to know the bottom topography and its features. It is best to go fishing on the river with sonar and remember or write down areas for fishing on. If you find a difference with deep water to shallow water, the so-called stall, this is the most promising area for fishing on the river.
There will always be a predatory fish, pike or walleye. As for fishing in the river is a good place where gullies, ditches, roots and so on. The more places you have noticed, the more successful will be fishing on the river. Be sure to note the time at which the most intense predatory fish. In various parts of the river pike and walleye behave differently.
Using its sonar data and visual observations on a large river can be fished all day, but at different sites. Careful preparation and correct behavior in the analysis of the river is always a chance to catch a trophy. For fishing in the river and catching a large predator, whether its pike, perch or catfish, for fishing from a boat used mostly for trolling lures.
This large spinners and lures with a diving depth of one and a half meters. If you find an underwater hill (where the depth drops sharply), should it carefully for fishing on. This kind of feeder for a peaceful fish and, consequently, for the predator. In such a place often sits in ambush big pike.
As a rule, the predator is a muzzle in the direction of smaller places. So, is fished from the middle of the hill, gradually expanding the range fishing on. That's such an interesting specificity of fishing in the river and catching a predator - pike perch or pike.
If you ever forget the landing net, it does not matter, because fish can get into the boat without it. Only your actions in this case must be very careful and do not rush. Bring the fish to the boat itself (for example, at a distance of 38-40 cm) and, without dropping the end of spinning, it is necessary to turn around its axis 2-3. After that, the fish loses orientation and ceases to pull on a depth. Now we need to bring the pike or walleye to the side of the boat and sat down, quietly take it under the gills and put in a boat.
In large rivers there are always caught pike, zander, big perch, whitefish, as well as knowing the place and you can catch a trophy catfish.
Fishing on the shore or in shallow waters
Fishing near the shore or in shallow areas differs from the above fishing in the river where the depth. In coastal areas, usually small fish caught, although there are exceptions. Many anglers fish is in shallow parts of the river. This method is well described in the literature and there is a lot of information on the Internet, so we will briefly touch on it especially for beginners spinning’s.
This method of fishing in the river does not require extensive knowledge of the seabed and land topography, and easy to digest novice anglers. For experienced anglers fishing on the river shore is also interesting. When catching a spinning important and must be able to accurately throw at a target, and it also brings moral satisfaction.
When fishing with spinning on the river near the shore is best throw with one hand, sitting in a boat, so the angler remains invisible. When pike or walleye near the coast should not be used as bait dead fish, deep-water baits and heavy jig heads. These lures to a depth not give the desired effect in the fishing on the river near the shore. At best, they bring only tufts of grass and algae after each throw. Surprisingly effective may be floating wobblers.
Fishing on the river shore
Fishing on the shore a little different from the fishing boat. If the bottom of the river in the coastal area is flat, you can get in the water. Long boots or coveralls for such cases are simply necessary. Baits are the same, but the spinning should be of medium hardness and with a short-handled landing net. Bimanual spinning in the coastal fishing is convenient because it easily allows you to bypass an obstacle - an island of vegetation acting separately from the water.
Have on the recommendation of two-handed spinning, does not mean that you should not use it with one hand. It's just a matter of convenience. Fishing on the shore spinning should be a little more careful with casting. It is necessary to choose the place and the fall of the bait is guaranteed to send her there. Here it is necessary to take into account the wind direction and altitude bait on crosswind, as the means of slack fishing line, bait can be attributed to a different location.
The most common catches when fishing from the shore there are pike and perch, but also often caught chub. Pike fishing at the river shore is rarely caught or not at all.
Fishing in rivers with low banks is a little different from the coastal fishing. Commonly used spinning - second and third grade. Baits are heavier and larger. In such places on the river, you can catch a chub and pike-perch. Usually the fish in the rivers is below dams and fish traps, which cannot cope with strong currents and drifts down tired. It is easy prey for pike, zander and asp.
Career large rivers occur over long distances, they are good for catching asp, so does not use a thick twine or braid (maximum diameter of no more than 0.35 mm). If the river has a pool with reverse current, attention should be paid to this. It likes to keep catfish, so there is a rare opportunity to catch a trophy. The rivers of this type usually allow catching whitefish, pike, chub, chub, perch, if you're lucky, and catfish.
Fishing for medium-sized rivers
You can use any spinning that suits you. If the river runs along the wooded location, convenient to catch the one hand, having a retractable spinning. But this is an amateur. I used to catch a spinning test with a 20-40 and a fast-response coil. In such fishing on the river caught trout, pike, whitefish, chub, chub and perch.
As a rule, the average width of the river is 50 to 80 meters, allowing you to throw the bait almost to the opposite shore. In such rivers need to move downstream, leading a decoy against the flow of the river. Fished all visible inlets and bays, as well as islands with vegetation. A good place and good fishing to be overgrown oxbows.
Fishing on the small rivers
Most recently, trapping and fishing on small rivers begins to be popular. Such places became visited by many anglers. In such rivers, streams or rather those who like to go fishing fly fishing. Most often fishing on the river, looking more like a stream allows you to catch these fish like grayling, trout, mullet and other fish inhabiting the swift current and cold water, which loves raging rapids and dramatic twists.
Greater importance in fishing on small rivers is spinning equipment. Overalls for fishing are a must. Ease suit is that a lot of pockets for bait boxes, tools, match, etc. Overalls allow comfort to the bank, to have with the essentials - a thermos, sandwiches, raincoat, first aid kit, bag of fish. When selecting equipment for fishing in the river and catching various species of fish offer to use the following guidelines:
Trout, grayling and perch catch spinning 160-190 cm in length, line diameter from 0.17 mm to 0.25 mm, small spinners.
For mullet - spinning first or second class from 190 to 210 cm in length, line diameter from 0.22 to 0.28 mm, rotating spinner baits and a little swing.
Chub, pike, whitefish - spinning second or third class in length from 210 to 275 cm and the coils of the second class (the factor of inertia), the diameter of line or braid from 0.28 to 0.4 mm, and spoons, spinners and wobblers.
catfish - a second or third-class spinning rod length from 275 to 310 cm, the coil of the third class (the multiplier) will suit a variety of bait, should be chosen that best show itself.
So we figured out a little bit and that is fishing in the river. From the foregoing, it is clear that the fish in the river can be anywhere and anything. The variety of fish in the river is always greater than any lake or pond. We wish you success, and fishing on the river to please you trophies!
