Wildwood Outfitters Blog and Fishing Report
Make no mistake, it is HOT! This is arguably the toughest time of year for both anglers and the trout. As water temps rise we have the responsibility of keeping the fish in mind. When the stream thermometer gets above 60-65 degrees it's time to start considering giving the trout a break and chasing bass, bluegill, or other warm water species!
For those wishing to continue the pursuit of trout, and there are many of us out there, consider going out in the early morning hours before the sun's rays beat down. You'll read that later in the evening can be safer is well, but odds are the water is still far too warm from the heat of the day.
The fish are stacked in faster riffles that hold some amount of depth. This provides them with much needed oxygen as well as a small, albeit important, reprieve from the heat. In some ways finding fish can be much easier now than during the spring and early summer months, just be sure to take care of any trout you catch!
