Podcast: How to Catch Tailwater Trout All Winter, with Steve Galletta



This week’s interview is with Steve Galletta of Bighorn Angler in Fort Smith, Montana. The Bighorn fishes well all winter long, and Steve shares tips on how to catch tailwater trout throughout the season. Even if you don’t plan on fishing the Bighorn any time soon, Steve’s tips will give you valuable intel on how to fish your local tailwater.

In The Fly Box, we have questions about the effects of fly flotants on knots, disappearing brook trout, releasing fish in fast water, using switch rods on lakes, why streamers work well in the fall, using UV resins for fly tying, fishing mouse patterns on lakes at night, keeping track of tippet rings, smells on carp flies, and how to apply techniques learned in one fishery to other species and places.

  1. Tom,

    Rio loads their tippet rings on a snap swivel. Pretty handy to put on a zinger and use just like your safety pin.

    Thanks for all the great info.
