- High Pressure (30.50 +/Clear Skies) – Fish bite Medium to Slow in deeper water or near cover while fishing slowly.
- Medium Pressure (29.70 – 30.40/Fair Weather) – Normal Fishing using different gear or baits to meet the needs of the fish.
Is fishing better with high or low barometric pressure?
According to Woodward, fish are much more comfortable when there’s stable high pressure, and tend to feed actively most anywhere within the water column. He also acknowledges the general cycles of high and low pressure and how fish react to them.
Do fish bite better if barometer is rising or falling?
The best barometric pressure conditions for fishing are when the pressure is falling, and the weather is degrading. During this period of falling barometric pressure, fish will be very active. They will likely take any food you offer them.
Do fish go deeper in low pressure?
If you are fishing in low pressure, the fish can usually be found deeper. They won’t be feeding as actively, and you’re also going to have to slow yourself down in order to draw them in.
