Surface Feeding Percentage
Posted 26 March 2005 - 11:58 PM
Do you feel this is really true on all waters, or are there waters where trout feed on the surface more?
And, if trout do eat such a high percentage subsurface, why are we able to catch them on the surface even when a hatch isn't happening?

"Why do they still feed on the surface when theres no hatch?" .....
Usually the only fish that will feed on the surface when there is no hatch going on is the smaller little "dinks" not the larger trout. So I would say the smaller fish are just so full of energy they will take whatever looks like food without careing about expelling the energy. The larger trout usually wont feed on top without a hatch.
