Field and Stream - - CAMPFIRE -

• Let’s be hon­est, stocked trout can be lazy even dur­ing warmer times. Drop the wa­ter tem­per­a­ture be­low 40 de­grees in a free­stone stream, and they can become prac­ti­cally co­matose. To ex­pend as lit­tle en­ergy as pos­si­ble, fall’s left­over stock­ers will move to deep, slow runs. When you find good wa­ter, pound it with this rig, be­cause it can take a while for a frozen fish to make a move. Dead drift­ing scores, but im­part twitches on oc­ca­sion to try trig­ger­ing a re­ac­tion bite.
