I made a tactical error. I have a keiryu pole arriving on Monday. I really should have waited until spring to buy a pole almost 18' long. But what is done is done. Obviously I need to find something to catch with it. It can't just lean it in a corner all winter.
Unfortunately, my first thought was winter stream trout. I've never tried winter trout fishing. Once I learned stream trout were usually smaller than redhorse I lost interest. But, keiryu poles are made for precision drift fishing. And it is winter...
I am hoping you can help me out.
First, does anyone have any non-trout suggestions for winter stream fishing with an 18' cane pole?
Any suggestions for rigging and fishing keiryu rods?
Lastly, any suggestions for fishing winter stream trout?
For those not familiar with keiryu poles, this is the one I got (size 54).https://www.tenkarabum.com/field-master-suguru-long.html
