IMPORTANT NOTES ON TROUT BEHAVIOR
These notes will cover the trout feeding behavior as it pertains to the PMD hatches. Trout feed on insects that are found drifting in the current. As the nymphs mature and the time of hatching draws near, the nymphs begin to drift off the bottom on the way to the surface. The trip doesn?t happen all at once, nymphs start drifting off the bottom up to an hour before the actual emergence. At first the trout begin to feed on the bottom. As the nymphs ascend toward the surface the trout will follow them up, feeding on the nymphs because trout always take advantage of easy, available food forms. As the nymphs get closer to the surface and the emergence becomes more eminent the trout begin to feed almost exclusively on emergers.*
