I usually fish for trout in streams in Pa, however this year in the fall Sept -Oct I fished in a dam, its a paid fishing place and I noticed about 20 to 30 trout jumping clean out of the water, I've been fly fishing for more years than I care to admit to.
I know when trout are feeding on Dry Flys, Emergers, Nymphs, and Midges, but I don't have any idea why they are jumping clean out of the water, I guess the best way to describe it is if you ever saw a propose or a dolphin coming completely out of he water, or if the trout were trying to catch an insect 2 feet above the water.
Wondering if anybody has ever experienced this kind of behavior in trout or why they do it ? Thanks Ed
