Hey, I was wondering if you guys have any tips for fishing during the middle of the day To help your chances of landing a fish.

It depends on what type of fishing .. I assume your talking brookies and or maybe salmon? My suggestion is be patient and fish the runs deep water doesn't always make the best fishing..look for flowing water it be 8" or 16" deep drop your fly or bait.

Not just fly fishing, I fish bass right around my area in the little river.

All fish really only need a few things ... food , oxygen,food. protection, food.. and a cool steady body temp.. so... look for springholes, bubbly rips and shaded overhangs with enough flow to bring them a food supply... think like the fish

If it's cloudy, you can fish all day long. If it's a sunny day, shade is your friend. Like Troutbum said, look for overhanging trees (for the shade factor, mostly, as well as possible bugs falling off them for an easy meal). And if you're wading that river on a sunny day, hopefully the sun will be shining on one side of the river and the other side will be shaded by the treeline. In that case, focus your attention on the shady side, however, if a pool occurs on the sunny side, don't ignore it!

smallies at mid day can be a spinner bait time - let it helicopter down, smack it of some rocks or logs, look for shady spots as mentioned above and the runs/creekbeds (under water - old ones, and ledges too). some bass will be changing locations at mid day, so i have actual done really well by power fishing suspending cranks using extra long casts. you can also twich near cover of weeds etc., or even pop on cloudier days or just before a rain. if your hook is dressed, i find they prefer a simple chicken feather to crystal flash in the heat in clear water - it curls more life like i think. generaly increase your cast distance to avoid spooking the fish. as for trout, find a spot no one else has fished in a week...!lol
