When the water is very cold, speckled trout fishing is to be encouraged, it is the one that will respond better to this temperature.

Here is a little reminder of the techniques to favor at this time. First the light throw by targeting the areas most exposed to the sun, the edges of the lake, the places where the lake is shallower, in short the places likely to have warmer water. It is possible to troll at low speed or fly too, but always keep in mind that the trout will seek warmer water and will be closer to the surface at the start of the season.

It is possible to consult the information concerning the lake as well as the bathymetric map of the latter in the section About the outfitter

Casting fishing consists of casting the line to a targeted spot and bringing the lure back to you and repeated by varying the target.

Trolling involves letting the line “drag” behind the boat as it moves across the lake with the motor at very low speed. It is essential not to drive at high speed as this scares the trout. At the start of the season, it is wilder.

Fly fishing is also popular at this time, less obvious for beginners as this technique requires practice and knowledge of the technique.

For the fishing rod, we suggest using a medium-light fishing rod with a line resistance of 4 or 6 lbs. For the leader, a ball swivel followed by a spinner (the most popular Clear Wobbler at this time), an 18-inch leader and finally a #4 or #6 hook. The most used bait is worms, but artificial lures are also popular. Like for example the pink Atomic Teaser or the PowerBait “Trout Nibbles” are successful.

On the other hand, when certain insects that attract trout appear, it is possible to choose a fly similar to this insect and install it at the bottom of a light spinning rod.

On site, do not hesitate to ask questions to the managers on site, they will be happy to advise you.

We also have a few items for sale at reception.

Obviously other techniques and line presentations are successful on Lake Berval, but today we present the classics.
