November 14 - What Trout Eat
Learn what is on the trout's menu for each season!
One of the most important questions that anglers ask themselves and try to answer every time he or she ventures onto the water is, “What are the trout eating this very minute?” This can be a tough question because trout often have many different food items from which to choose. In fertile waters, the choices are almost limitless.
Chironomids, scuds, fry, leeches, damsels, snails and mayflies are just a few of the tasty morsels trout love to eat. And each food item has different stages in its life cycle that it can be going through, e.g., egg, larva, pupa, adult or fry. How and when do we first observe and then conduct quick and reliable research in order to choose the correct fly to imitate what the trout are eating at that moment?
This month we will have SoCal’s own Ernie Gulley
to clarify this for us. Ernie has spoken at our club a number of times and always is popular and appreciated for his knowledge. and being able to present topics in a way that invariably help us become better fly fishers. Ernie will improve our fishing by showing what foods are in large abundance during which months of the season and what are the actual choices trout have and, most important, how and why they choose to eat what, when.
