There are many advantages to fishing small streams: no crowds, no boats and fish that are often less fussy. Of course, it’s usually – but not always – about smaller fish. At this time of year, when the valley rivers are sometimes too warm for trout fishing, small mountain streams or spring streams offer the opportunity to fish for trout without fear of overwhelming them.

In this great video by The new fly fishermanTom Rosenbauer shows you how to find good little streams and then explains a variety of tactics and techniques to help you catch more trout from those waters. Also, Pete Kutzer gives a casting lesson to help you land the fly in tight spaces.
