Winter fishing tips

Fishing seasons

The best times to fish are always early in the morning from 6:am am to 9:00am, late morning to afternoon from 9:00am to 1:00pm or afternoon to dusk from 1:00pm to 5:00pm. Fish are much harder to find in hot days or too cold days.

1. Fishing during spring

Early morning: Fish aren't biting. The water is cold and doesn't heat up because the sun is low and the rays bounce off the water. Best to wait until a week or so after thaw, as spring turnover takes time for the water temperature to even out to 39.2 degrees.
Late morning-early afternoon: Fish are biting off and on. The water begins to warm up because rays begin to penetrate the water. Remember to fish the downwind shoreline, as the winds will push the warmer surface water along with surface food into that area.
Afternoon-early evening: Fish are eating a lot because their metabolism and digestion are cranked. Water is warm because the sun is directly overhead.

2. Fishing during summer

Early morning: Fishing is excellent from before sunup to just before mid-morning. At this time of year there is abundant food and cover for fish, so finding hungry fish can be a challenge.
Late morning-early afternoon: Fishing is poor for most of the day. Fish move to deep water to cool off.
Afternoon-early evening: Fishing is excellent from early sundown until dark as the waters cool and fish rise up from the depths.

3. Fishing during fall

Early morning: Fish aren't biting much from sunup to early morning. The water is cool because the sun is too low to penetrate the water.
Late morning-early afternoon: Fish are biting off and on in warmer, shallow water. The water is generally cool due to the season.
Afternoon-early evening: Considered one of the best fishing times of the year. Sun is directly overhead for several hours and the water gets more comfortable near the surface. This makes for seasonally good fishing because fish are putting on weight for the winter.

4. Fishing during winter

Although many will be after that larger winter carp, they feed a lot less in the colder temperatures leaving you sat behind motionless carp rods for sometimes hours on end, so we suggest being a little more open to targeting other species within the same day.
Fish such as roach, perch, grayling and chub are often happier to feed throughout the day regardless of the temperature. These can offer an action-packed day, even on a short session.
Winter is prime time for those impressive predators so make sure you kit yourself out and give pike, zander and perch a go! Predator fish produce bites and certainly keep you enjoying the winter as these cold-water killers are actively hunting prey fish in winter so attracting them with dead bait, live bait or even a decent lure can lead to a fantastic day full of bites.
