    Default Small stream chub fishing

    Got a couple of small streams near me where it's proper jungle fishing . Anyone had any experiences with this kind of fishing?

    In places it's a mere 2 ft deep and others it's 6ft. Is it better to ledger with a swan shot or 2 on the line or trotting ?

    If ledger any better baits for small streams as guess boilies and pellets be out the window ?

    Thanks

    You've more or less got it right Matt, either trot or fish a small lead and avoid those baits as they are selective - maggots will give you a good idea of what's in there and you can learn the river more each time.

    Also that jungle will become less of a problem as winter progresses and those little rivers give a better account of themselves after a good bit of rain

    That was the idea why I have got my interest now as looked in summer and was too overgrown .

    But now il go have a go try trotting or ledger baits like lobworms , bread , prawns

    I guess feeders are a now as could easily feed too much . Guess if do loose feed anything like mash bread only a little bit .

    Thanks

    Matt I plan to try a little river this week armed with maggots, prawns and bread! I plan to use a light ledger ie a couple of sssg on a short piece of line, and a trot or two if circumstances allow! Good luck Matt!

    Ps I will also be using corn!!!!!!

    If your going where I think your going Mike, maggots/casters and corn are your best bet .

    Yes, one or two feet would constitute a deep swim on some of the becks and small rivers I fish.

    If you wanted to train a chub for the circus you probably manage it if you gave them corn lol. They also like corn/maggot cocktails .
