When are the best fishing times? Day time, night time, early, late or just when you decide to go because you are bored. Talk to different people and you will get different answers. For me any time I can go is the best time. Most of the time I like to be on or in the water just as it is turning light-daybreak. From daybreak until sunrise is one of the best times to fish on any body of water anywhere in the country. When the moon faze is right, the action can be tremendous. If the moon faze has the prime or best time to fish on up in the morning or afternoon, daylight to shortly after sunrise is still an excellent fishing time. Fish know when the bugs and other little creatures get up to feed so they get up to feed also. Actually, when all is considered, I guess my best fishing time is when I can go.
