Don’t assume you need to hike for miles to find those remaining trout. But Mark Swann, an environmental technician from Black Mountain, North Carolina, agrees it is important to find new water. He often waits for the crowds to clear out before targeting hatchery trout. His first bit of advice? Avoid areas with easy access and heavy fishing pressure. Swann also seeks out places most anglers overlook. Small, unassuming pockets within a long and fast run, narrow seams along the bank, and dark areas under overhanging limbs all demand a few casts.
