Default Tread lightly

Do you tread lighting if you are wading in a stream or river when you are fishing? Not only does it keep the fish from being scared, but by treading lightly, you are preventing the ecosystem from being disturbed.

Not only do you want to protect the ecosystem, but you definitely do not want to even wade into water if the fish are spawning. You don't want to destroy eggs or hatchlings accidentally.

Of course. Disturbing the ecosystem is the last thing I want to do when fishing. That's why I rarely wade while fishing. Mostly I fish on boat or on a shoreline.

I'm a shoreline person myself, but I do tread lightly to also avoid sinking into the muddy bottom too much; I hate the feeling of being stuck in mud!

I avoid wading as much as possible and opt to sit on the shore instead. I am afraid of slipping and on the rocks and the mud.

I hate getting wet in wading. I would rather stay on the shore or fish on boat than wade. Anyway, tread lightly and carefully when you are wading. On the river, you will never exactly know what is under your foot.
