After a short glimpse of spring temperatures went down in the basement again.

Yesterday the morning started with 23F so I went out late in the morning when

the temperature rose just above freezing.


During the week I noticed that a fellow club member had caught a quite big chub
on one of the streams I fish.
Normally I would go there only in high summer but catching a large fish seemed
a welcome change to the small roach and dace I got recently.

I checked out the best summer spots but the water was completely dead.
Water was up a bit but clarity was ok, current a tad too fast.
The only action was on land with lots of roe deer roaming around and oddly
many pheasants.

Plan B was to fish behind the clubhouse where the stream was wide and
relative shallow.

That spot had to be the day saver but it was completely dead, could not spot

any fish activity at all.

 

Already late in the afternoon the sun was low in the sky and I was still fishless.
Could it be, first skunk of the year ... nah ... plan C was drafted.
There was one spot where the local council had done some stream restauration.
A formerly straightened part had been changed in a freely meandering stream
with a side channel that flooded during extreme high water.

The side channel was my target as it was slow moving to stagnant and 

functioned as a shelter for the stream fish.
When i arrived I noticed many rings on the water so my hopes where high.
I fishing only a short time but at least I caught a couple of small roach and bleak.

Small fish but skunk avoided.

Next week the weather will change to a more wetter and warmer type.
Maybe I will put in some more time at the plan C spot as there are bigger
fish in there.

Beautiful pics. 

 

What are the laws like in Germany. Is there much public land, lakes, rivers to fish?  Or is this private access only?
