Drift fishing is a fishing technique where anglers allow their bait or lures to drift naturally with the current of the water. This method is commonly used in rivers, streams, and other bodies of water with a current. Unlike stationary fishing, where the bait remains in one place, drift fishing involves allowing the bait to move along with the flow of the water. Anglers cast their baited hooks or lures into the water upstream and let them drift downstream with the current. The goal is to present the bait in a natural and enticing manner to attract fish. To control the depth at which the bait drifts, anglers may use weights to sink the bait or bobbers to keep it near the surface. The choice depends on the target species and the water conditions. Anglers pay attention to the movement of their bait, feeling for any bites or changes in resistance. This requires a certain level of attentiveness and skill to detect subtle movements. Drift fishing may involve adjustments based on factors such as current speed, water depth, and the behavior of the fish. Anglers may need to change the weight, adjust the depth, or alter their presentation to optimize their chances of catching fish.
