July is, perhaps, the same month of the summer season, when the sun is baking in all its might. For the fisherman this month can be described as not the best when you can count on a rich catch. Everything is explained quite simply. The upper layers of the water surface warm up to a temperature that is not comfortable for the fish, all the more so in the places of shallow water. As a result, almost all fish goes to a depth, or lives in places where there are a large number of bottom springs. In the afternoon, when the weather is calm and hot, you can’t count on a good catch in most cases. Therefore, fishing in the July days will be more practical if the day is rainy and cloudy. Also, the best time for fishing in July will be the morning hours, when dawn just rises. At this time, the water is still not so much warmed up as during the day and the fish rises from depth to surface. In some cases, fishing can take place at night. At such times bream, zander, chub, pike, perch are well caught.
If we talk about standing reservoirs, such as lakes, ponds, bays and the like, the situation here is even worse. The month of July for such reservoirs is the time of blooming water, when the masses of algae bloom in full force. This situation leads not only to turbidity of the water column, but also to the fact that the fish has the ability to eat well. Naturally, it’s becoming more difficult to catch a well-fed fish. In stagnant bodies of water, crucian carp, ide, ide, silver carp and other fish species usually live. If in good weather, from the point of view of fishing, and with clean water, all this fish is at the surface, then during the decomposition of faded aquatic vegetation, the fish rushes to the bottom. This fact is connected with the fact that decaying plants have a negative effect on the level of oxygen saturation of the water.
Meanwhile, even despite the fact that July is a summer month that is not entirely favorable for such a process as fishing, experienced fishermen are not left without fish. To do this, apply all available experience in fishing and, of course, all available knowledge about fish habits. For example, experienced fishermen are well aware that perch is a fish that almost always lives in depth and only during feeding periods can this species of fish be seen on the shallows. Favorite places for a gathering of perch are dense thickets of water lilies and other aquatic vegetation. Perch also likes to live where there are a large number of snags at the bottom. It is in such places that the best bite of this type of fish is noted. It is best to catch perch for such a nozzle as a dung worm, bloodworm, dragonfly larva, and also for small fish – fry. For fishing use a float rod, spinning.
It is safe to say about such fish as a pike perch that this type of fish adores clean water. Habitat of pike perch in the month of July, as a rule, are located where there are deep holes, river rapids. It is best to catch pike perch with a spinning reel, using spinners and mormyshki as bait. In principle, zander is also well caught on float rods. In the latter case, they are caught on live bait or on a dung worm. The optimum time for zander fishing in July is the early morning hours, when the sun has not yet risen or, on the contrary, late time after sunset.
This type of fish, like crucian carp, has a good bite immediately after spawning. In July, catching crucian carp is best off the coast, where vegetation predominates. The main fishing tool in this case is an ordinary float fishing rod. The main nozzle is a dung worm, caddis flies, maggot. Also effective bread rolls are rolled up into a small ball, fresh dough, porridge. It should be noted that crucian carp belongs to the type of fish for which the hot July days, on the contrary, are the best time for good boron. If we take into account the fact that crucian carp and carp are closely related species, the same conditions are favorable for carp fishing in July. The methods of carp fishing are practically no different from the methods of carp fishing.
Bream, a fish that can also be caught in the month of July. The optimal places where the bream lives, of course, should be considered areas of the river with a predominantly sandy bottom. Moreover, the bream gives the most preference to places deep-sea, with steep banks. Donka and float fishing rod, these are tried and tested means by which bream can be caught. As a nozzle for catching this type of fish, an earthworm or dung worm is often used. Steamed peas can also be considered a favorite bream delicacy, and much depends on the quality of the park. Experienced fishermen in July, and not only in July, usually catch pre-feeding the place where it is supposed to be fished. As a complementary food, sunflower meal is well suited. Feeding, as a rule, is scattered in the place of future fishing at night, and early in the morning, before sunrise, fishing begins.
