Rainbow trout ice fishing is possible on some special fishing grounds in Central Finland. The biggest advantage of rainbow trout ice fishing are the big fish caught by using this method.

When you are ice fishing rainbow trout you should fish from the same hole for a while and wait until rainbow trout swim to the hole. You should beging ice fishing from the bottom and chance the fishing depth every now and then. It can also be effective to jigg directly under the ice. If you catch a rainbow trout you should stay in the same place.

Rainbow trout is fished on special fishing grounds. The best lodges are usually full of holes. It is easy to notice catch places on ice afterwards. Rainbow trout often swim near shores. Abrupt banks near shores are often excellent lodges.

The best time to jigg rainbow trout is early in the morning.

You should use heavier ice fishing tackles than those for perch when ice fishing rainbow trout. You should use a 5 in. ice drill and strong enough fishing line to be able to pull a big rainbow trout on the ice.
