do you think a heavy rain helps or hurts fishing the next few days?
It has all ways helped me, I all most all ways catch cats after a good rain!
It has always been the same for but this weekend it rained really good friday night and rest of the weekend I couldn't even get a bite.
i've always had good luck after a good storm, i've had good fishin durin a real good storm.
Always like to fish inlets coming into lakes during and right after a storm.
The back of creeks and coves can offer some surprises after a good rain.
I've found that the fish come in after a heavy rain, to gorge on critters that were washed into the lake. The trick is to find the best spots where the land provides the most run off, with deep water near by.
I have always thought that a heavy rain helps the fishing.
Most of the time it helps .........triggers flatheads to move around and channelcats for certain are more active after heavy rain. Torrential water
washes night crawlers and other food into water.
Its always good to fish for cats after a good rain ! i know i grew up on the colorado river and after a good rain and the waters got muddy, there was always good bires and catches.
I believe the circumstances of rain depends on the weather.
I have had on and off days after a rain.
I have have good lucks in creeks after a good rain.
had some of my best luck right before, during and after a good rain storm. Best to use either night crawlers or cut baits IMO
I like to fish an inlet after a heavy rain. It almost always makes for a good day.
I think it helps. I always like to fish nightcrawlers on a medium spinning rod with a couple split shot for weights up in the shallow water on high water periods.
best wild brown trout fishing in az i've ever down was after a hard rain storm and everyone said streams were too muddy to fish.
I agree with Lil kat, rain will bring a river/lake/reservoir up and wash a lot of bait in the water. Your best bait when this happens is to match the bait. Catfish will scout the shores for whatever and a lot of times this is nightcrawlers. They will tear up nightcrawlers close to shore.
On jugs, like on KY lake they will really taper off bitting, unless you run them shallow.
i think it just helps, i never had a prob catchin in the rain
I agree, I like to throw an unweighted nightcrawler anywhere there is runnoff into a stream or lake. The crawler will drift right to the areas where fish are holding...
I've noticed more productive trips during and after rains. Probably due to nutrients being washed into water systems, bait fish feeding on those nutrients, and predators feeding on the bait fish.
