Today’s Master Class Monday video by Dave and Amelia Jensen is the first installment in an 11-part series on how to read trout water. Here, Dave focuses on the straight stretches of river found near bridges. He shows you how to identify the best holding water, based on a trout’s need for depth, overhead cover, and food supply. These lessons apply to any long, straight section of water, of course. And don’t forget to spend some time on the bridge itself, observing the water below.
