Encyclopedia > Tailwater

Tailwater refers to a type of trout fishery.


Tailwater fisheries are created at the outflow from large dams, where the size of the reservoir creates a steep temperature gradient. The constant cold-water flow provided by the reservoir's outflow, coupled with the generally silt-free nature of the outflow, creates ideal water conditions for trout in environments that ordinarily might not support a robust trout population. An example of this phenomenon is the fishery at Lee's Ferry in Arizona.

Tailwater fisheries are created at the outflow from large dams, where the size of the reservoir creates a steep temperature gradient, with colder water stored at the bottom of the reservoir near the outlet.
An example of this phenomenon is the fishery at Lee's Ferry on the Colorado River in Arizona.
Tailwater can carry pollutants such as silt, nutrients (from fertilizers), and pesticides.
Fishing Tailwater (576 words)
Tailwater is defined as being the water below a dam or other hydroelectric facility that is subject to changes in flow cause by varying water release rates.
The constant temperatures found in tailwater allow aquatic insects to flourish and provide trout with a constant source of food allowing them to grow at astonishing rates.
Tailwater provides large hardy fish that are willing to take a fly under almost any condition.
