As anglers, we’ve all had days when you catch so many trout that you lose count and days when no matter what you try, you can’t seem to get their attention. This phenomenon sometimes feels unexplainable but we’ve learned over the years that paying close attention to weather conditions and barometric pressure can help you foresee and plan for those difficult days.
Through our on-water experience and research, we believe that barometric pressure (aka air pressure or atmospheric pressure) has a big impact on trout behavior and ultimately, fishing productivity. Like sky conditions, barometric pressure can directly impact a trout’s holding position and behavior. We understand that the ins and outs around barometric pressure can be intimidating so instead of overwhelming you, we’ve decided to break down the various scenarios you might experience on the water and what that means from both a productivity and a tactical standpoint.
