Wind Direction and Drift Lines
Leeward shorelines collect windblown surface debris. In these foam lines are trapped insects and nearby bait fish. Windward shores adjacent to shoreline
vegetation can be an additional source of terrestrials. Also, the leeward shore receives a surf action which stirs up the bottom dwelling aquatic insects, and makes them available to predation. Fish may move into the surf to feed. Muddy surf areas are indications that the bottom has been disturbed. Fish the juncture where water clarity improves enough for the fish to readily see your offering. When fishing stained water slow down your retrieve and make your casts closer together. Make it easy for the fish to find your bait. The muddy surf affords concealment for the foraging fish. A wide variety of fly patterns can be effective because it must only match some of the bottom dwelling shoreline insects.
