BREAM IN THE RIVER SLEEVES

Water is still relatively warm in the fall, and bream are very active. In order to avoid the water level increases and flooding, bream look for shelters in calmer river zones.

Like all cyprinidae, bream have to store fat before the temperature falls. The larger these fat storages are, the more fat energy the bream will save when water temperatures falls below 10 degrees Celsius. The smallest specimens will continue feeding occasionally. Bream will exhaust themselves searching for food on the bottom of sheltered places full of various obstacles.

  


Bream live in shoals and are very competitive when feeding. The noise that is created when you perform additional feeding does not frighten them away. On the contrary, it makes them more ferocious food hunters!

Good fishing locations

When water levels increase, clear water zones withdraw into river sleeves and dead ponds. It is easy to identify this zone in the fall by its water colour, which is much clearer than the river itself.
Depths of 2-3 meters, and a relatively flat bottom, somewhat removed from the shore water grasses, perfectly suit the bream and anglers alike.

  

Fishing with a direct rod* is the most appropriate technique for these conditions. Food for creating cloud effects, enriched with meat worms, will enable you to keep the bream at the fishing location permanently, under the condition that you keep the rhythm of additional feeding* very regular.

Remonter

Remonter   * direct rod: rod which consists of more parts which enter one another; it's used when the fishing zone depth is much smaller than the rod length.
* additional feeding: groundbaiting strategy in which small balls of food, the size of a walnut, are thrown into the water at regular intervals, for the duration of the entire fishing period.
