Features of a small river

On the peculiarities of small rivers, in summer and in winter. How to choose a catchy place?

There are many small rivers and rivulets in the Russian outback that have their quiet charm. Among the meadows and woods they run, ringing on the shallows and stopping in the black whirlpools, where they are already slowly circling in the opposite direction. And then run on. And each such river has its own character. It seems that large fish can not be found in such shallow rivers, which the daytime sun shines through to the bottom? But do not rush to such conclusions. Our urban and suburban river in the spring can give excellent chubs who have taken the feeder. At the exit from the pit, on its brow, it is possible to catch the same feeder of large red-eyed dens, which in size and weight will not yield to the Volga fishes. And at the beginning of summer, when evening and morning dawns converge on the color and light spectrum, a large scoundrel takes here, and even a real bream will make the quiver shake.

Features of a small river in summer

How to choose a catchy place here?
Behind the shallows, where the roach is rotated on the golden sand, there is usually a dark pit, sometimes almost black. And here at the bottom often lie branched trees, brought in the spring of high water. In such black glass holes, quite large fishes usually stay during the day. Other fertile places for large fish are willow bushes hanging over calm or fast water. And here there are divisions into categories of fish that prefer to keep under the river bushes. On the current, bypassing the snags and trees lying in the water, chubs and izies keep. Here they are free to move their tails on the oncoming and broken jet streams and pick up insects falling from the branches. And then the red-faced chub will strike with its tail and grab a silver fry. In the shady tikhovodyakh bream-podleschiki stand sleepily.

In the gulfs, overgrown with yellow-eyed water lilies were chosen by roach birds, among which comes a weighty red-eyed sireg. Here, too, from time to time a heavy tail will strike, disturbing the inhabitants of this quiet corner. This goes pike, waiting in ambush its red-eyed prey. Sliver on the sides of the silver toptop and boil water on the coastal shallows, bordering the channel pit. Here, perchs are engaged in noisy and reckless hunting, driving trivialities into dead ends and greedily chomping bleak and verkhovka. Here it is, a small river.

But such quiet beauty is inherent in a small river only in carefree summer time.

And with the arrival of cold?
Features of a small river

At the end of the summer, the wind more and more often tears off their fluttering leaves from the coastal osinok and limes, which dot the dark water. And already it blows cold from the once warm and quiet waters of the river, where the bleak was quietly melting. Gray clouds bring long rains, which are often sown on weeks of still and icy water. And then the river becomes unsociable and gloomy. Only wet crows hoarsely croak above the river, and the distant ringing of departing bird flocks is heard. It seems that life is over in this small and gray world. But the ringing frost will come, the glass sky will redden, and suddenly there will be motionless fast waters of a small river. In the bays and on the riverbed, water through the transparent ice seems black. And on the sandbanks, if you step from the shore to the ice, you can immediately see how the bevy of striped perch scourse on the sides and hide in a black hole, to which you can easily reach. And the next morning you can come here with a winter fishing rod. It seems that for such a small river and gear must be extremely miniature.

But the opposite is true
In the morning you will quietly slide off a cliff, walk up to the edge of the coast and throw a dry fin along this edge, make something like a bridge. If you immediately set foot on this boundary, then, most likely, immediately and you will fall into icy water for sedge. There is always fragile ice. And then there is ice reliable five-centimeter thickness. But you can’t hope for it. Before fishing, it is necessary to bypass around the perimeter of the place of fishing, tapping with the foot and simply throwing it at the ice with the edge forward. If she breaks ice under her weight, then you should stay away from this place.

The place is already equipped, the uneven hole, punched by an ice pick, turns black. You put a golden “gryvdeshashik” or “devil” with a scarlet drop into it. Where at least this evil almost a fingertip size? All because the local fish will scatter. No, after a few shaky postings, the nod will wince and the chub!

Yes, on the first ice everything is possible on a small river. So the ice season will open.
