For those that like a little bit more leaser to their fishing experience, then river fishing might just hit the bill. There are all kinds of river fishing from casting a line and watching for a bit , to trout lines and to going down the river in a boat bottle line fishing. River fishing is a different type of fishing that cannot be compared to lake or pond fishing, thou the same kind of fish can be caught. River fishing is usually done from the bank by most people and with some a set of waders to get out in the water and stay dry. Many of the best fish available are fished for in rivers like steelhead, salmon, small mouth bass, large mouth bass, Gar, catfish and carp. The unique thing about river fishing is the clarity of the water as it will play a huge role in the type of lures and bait that you use and how you fish the water. Muddy water is not good as fish will not be able to see the lure but is still good for for live bait. Muddy water will definitely hamper your ability to catch fish with a lure. A little cloudy color in the water is best and you want to fish a river right after a big rain for the best results because as the water is high the fish will come in closer to the bank to feed and as it lowers it is not as easy to catch them as the food supply goes down.
River fishing can be a great challenge even to the best angler out there fishing.
