Experience and Effective Methods of Fishing in Rising Rivers

What is a good fish? Good fish is the general name of fish other than small miscellaneous fish in fishing circles, such as crucian carp, carp, grass carp, catfish, etc. in fresh water.
In the process of many years of wild fishing, I have summed up my experience and effective methods of fishing in swollen rivers through practice. I now share the following for the reference of fishing friends who like wild fishing.
As the saying goes, the shrimp that swells up and the fish that recedes
What does that mean? It means that after the heavy rain and the rising water, the river gradually recedes, the sediment content in the water decreases, but the oxygen content increases. Fish are very active and their appetite increases greatly. They swim to the mouth of Huiwan Shoal after the rising water to forage. At this time, fishing will certainly yield good results.
Why do you want to fish at the mouth of Huiwan Shoal after the river swells?
This is because after the heavy rain, The deep water of the river is not only fast, Moreover, the water is also mixed with a large amount of sediment to make the river water turbid, especially in summer and autumn, when the water temperature is high, the exchange of upper and lower water is slowed down, and the bottom water will suffer from insufficient oxygen. In order to improve the environment, fish have to swim to the river channel with slow water flow, low sediment content and sufficient oxygen content to return to the bay shoal mouth to migrate for food.
The water flow at the mouth of Huiwan Shoal is slow and the bait is abundant.
Why are there so many fish in the mouth of Huiwan Shoal after the river swells?
After the heavy rain, the river swelled and the water flow was urgent. Although the oxygen content in the river increased, the sediment content also increased. The sediment content in the water of the river shoal is relatively small, but the water flow on the shoal is relatively fast, and natural baits such as aquatic organisms and insects are easily washed away by the water, so there are no fish stranded in the shoal of the rapids.
However, the situation is different at the shoal mouth where the river returns to the bay. After the heavy rain, the water subsided at the beginning, and the flow rate of the river back to the bay shoal mouth was slow. Fish flowing down and upstream like to migrate and rest here, accumulate strength, feed and supplement their strength by the way, and wait for the opportunity to move. In addition, the food washed down from the upper reaches touches the bottom at the mouth of Huiwan Shoal, and natural baits such as aquatic organisms and insects also move in this slow-flowing place. Fish themselves stay here. In addition, there are abundant baits here, and fish such as crucian carp, carp and catfish mostly gather here. Naturally, it is the best fishing point to catch fish after the river swells.
There are many fish in the slow flow of the river back to the bay.
So, how to fish at the mouth of Huiwan Shoal in the river?
1. Fishing tackle
Under normal circumstances, the water area of the river back to the bay shoal mouth will not be too large, so it is OK to use a 4.5 ~ 6.3 meter light hand pole for fishing. The main line of 1.0 ~ 1.5 is equipped with the sub-line of 0.8 ~ 1.5, and the long handle thin fish hook of sleeve 3 ~ sleeve 5 is enough. The float can be either scattered float or vertical float. The weight of the lead drop shall be subject to displacement without being impacted by water. The total buoyancy of the float is roughly equal to the total gravity of the lead drop. In the case of floating adjustment, 2-4 particles of scattered floating float on the water surface and 2-4 mesh of vertical floating are exposed to the water surface, which can not only maintain high sensitivity, but also facilitate observation of floating phase in slow flow.
Whether floating is vertical floating or scattered floating, it is appropriate to expose 2 ~ 4 mesh (particles) to the water surface.
Step 2 Make a nest
If there are aquatic plants at the mouth of Huiwan Shoal, then nest should be made according to the aquatic plants. If there are no aquatic plants, then make a nest in the deep water slow flow near the shore, because the deep water slow flow in the back bay shoal is deeper and has better concealment, and the fish will feel safer. Choosing this place to make a nest will soon cause the fish to bite the hook.
You should choose to go back to the deep water and slow flow of the bay shoal or make a nest beside the aquatic plants for fishing.
Step 3: Bait
For plain bait, strong flavor is the best, such as flour bait with strong fishy smell or fragrance, corn kernels or wheat kernels soaked in medicated liquor, etc. Fresh bait is the best meat bait. Fishing bait can be prepared for a rainy day without sticking to one pattern. It can be replaced according to the actual water regime and fish situation. Just think, a heavy rain washed away the trees and fields, and the river swelled and flooded the two sides of the river. During this period, how much natural bait was washed into the river and became a delicious food for fish to compete for.

4. Fishing
As long as the nest is properly selected, the fishing group is scientifically and reasonably matched, and the bait is right, the fishing method is actually very simple.Only two key points will be mentioned here:First, sometimes the bait is not easy to be found by fish due to factors such as slightly turbid water, or bait falling into stone crevices and being covered by silt. Therefore, one cannot wait for a minute or two when fishing. If there is no movement on the float for the longest time, one must slowly lift the rod to lure the fish to find the bait and bite the hook.On the other hand, After catching a few fish, To gently add a little nest material to the dens, In order to keep the fish school, As the water flows away, Therefore, when mending the nest, the nest material should be put in about 20 to 30 centimeters above the reverse water flow of the nest. Because of the water flow, the nest material will slowly scatter around the fishing point along with the water flow when falling into the water. If the nest is made directly at the fishing point, the nest material will rush to the bottom of the fishing point along the water, and the probability of fish eating bait will be reduced, which will affect the fishing amount.
Lifting rod and teasing can significantly increase the catch amount.
Concluding remarks
After the rain, the river swelled, and many fishing friends stopped fishing and waited until the water was clear before fishing. In fact, the swelling of the river does not mean that fishing is impossible, but the fish situation has changed with the water regime. However, the scouring of swollen water will also bring a large amount of bait into the river. Therefore, the flood season makes the fish in a period of vigorous appetite, especially active in feeding. The fish mostly gather at the mouth of the back bay shoal of the river for food. If fishermen can change their fishing skills and methods in time according to the changed water regime and fish conditions, they can not only catch fish, but also reap quite a lot.
