Reading Fishing Reports

When reading fishing reports the most useful information is likely to be the sum total of all reports over the last couple weeks, rather than the specifics of the most current fishing report. So finding that the fish have been caught shallow over the last few weeks is more important to know than the exact lure mentioned in the latest report.

Review the prior reports to find consistent information for summer months of June, July and August...the fall months of September and October...the winter months of November, December, January and February.
